What is XML-Sitemap?
A Sitemap is an XML file that lists the URLs for a site. It allows webmasters to
include additional information about each URL: when it was last updated, how
often it changes, and how important it is in relation to other URLs of the site.
Why sitemap is important?
A sitemap tells Google which pages and files you think are important in your site,
and also provides valuable information about these files: for example, for pages,
when the page was last updated, how often the page is changed, and any alternate
language versions of a page.
