A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - a list of all web pages arranged in sections as they show up on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a crucial effect on the popularity of your Internet site, especially if you have more content. It will enable your site visitors to search the webpages and find what they need faster, that will increase the possibility for them to revisit the Internet site or to show it to colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also needed for search engines to index your site content better, so certain pages will appear in the results for certain searches, which might not happen without a sitemap even when you have the necessary content. This is especially valid if you modify some webpages since the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl the website again to index the new content. Having a sitemap these days is essential rather than an optional attribute for any successful Internet site.

As a more advanced feature, you could also choose the file extensions that should be included within the sitemap - you can use the default ones which include all most popular extensions an Internet site uses for example php, html, etc, but if your Internet site contains more diverse content, you will be able to enter or delete an extension before you generate the sitemap for a specific site.
