HTML Sitemaps For Better Website Navigation

HTML is a markup language used to create web pages. HTML sitemaps are links to various pages of a website. Doing this is especially necessary for site visitors because they are not only able to find applicable information as per their needs, but also saves them time. Search engine bots can also use the links to trace content, some that might otherwise remain hidden during normal crawling of the website. It is now imperative that all webmasters clearly understand how to create a sitemap for their site because that simple act has lots of benefits in the long run.

Tips to Consider When Setting Up a Sitemap

There are three main varieties of ways to create sitemaps. The choice will depend on a number of factors, ranging from the nature of your website, content quantity, intended outcome, among others. Note that you can easily create sitemap using a sitemap generator.

  • Indexed Sitemap: This is a directory or an alphabetical listing of your site’s pages.
  • Complete Categorical Sitemap: This is the most popular comprehensive sitemap with classified links into categories. It is much easier to search for information and you can easily move between categories.
  • Restricted Categorical: Here, all links in a specific category are displayed at a go. However, all links of a website are not shown as is the case with categorical sitemap and therefore limits the lists links in some categories which simplifies viewing and doesn’t strain the eyes.

Why do websites need both a HTML and XML sitemap?

A Sitemap is a list of pages containing URLs found within a website that is available to users and search engines in order to navigate through a website and aide the user in finding the content they are looking for. The two types of sitemaps that you should be concerned with are XML and HTML.

What are the differences between these two types of sitemaps?

HTML sitemaps are created and available for viewing by website visitors to help them navigate through a website. Usually, they are setup with a linear structure showing the hierarchy of the site from top level pages to lower level ones. They provide the user with a very easy to read outline of content, making their navigation to their desired content easier.

XML sitemapsare a little different from HTML sitemaps, because they are intended for search engines and spiders not website visitors. XML sitemaps can be visible with any web browser, but their main function is to provide the URLs of a website to search engines. They even show data on how often a page has been changed compared to other URLs on the same site. This information is very important for search engines because the more links they are provided with, the more a website will appear in search engine results.
