Sitemaps are about more than website planning, and provide added SEO value to your website. If you’re thinking of taking on a new website project, planning out your sitemap should be your first vital step. Equally, your XML sitemap offers value - through signalling to search engines which pages they should pay attention to, and when they were last updated.
Figuring out where to start, especially if you haven’t created a sitemap before, can be difficult. We’ve created two templates to help you, with instructions on how to create a visual sitemap, and a starting point for coding your own XML sitemap.
Included in your download:
- Instructions on how to create your visual sitemap with the user journey in mind
- Code that you can copy and paste to create your XML sitemap
- Your template for a visual sitemap, useful in the planning stages of a new website or if you are thinking of redeveloping your current website
