Website Sitemap Template

The right sitemap can help you plan your site more effectively, understand your user journey, and add SEO value to boost site visibility.


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
