A sitemap is a file that includes the different pages of a website and the route to them through the sections of the website. The web pages can be sorted visually or as plain text and this type of a file is extremely useful for 2 reasons. The first is that it makes it faster and easier for the visitors to locate a specific page they need, which means that they can navigate your site better and a lot quicker, which in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will return to the site or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap permits search engines to index your content better, especially when it is updated, so if users are looking for specific content, it's more likely that they will find your website since it will be listed higher in their search results. If your site is not indexed effectively, it might not appear for some searches, so even when you have what people want, they will not get to the website.
