Gone are the days when getting listed in Google was a matter of using the proper keyword meta tags. Today its a bit more difficult and I want to share an simple suggestion to make Google like your site a bit more and its referred to as the site map.
Why do you need a web site map?
Today you will find a couple of website map variants, Google XML sitemaps and HTML sitemap. Both are an easy task to create today with the accessibility to free resources all over the internet. Blogs are extremely popular at this time. So, it is no surprise that finding a WordPress plug-in that fulfills this requirement is readily available.
Having a sitemap is really a terrific idea to help visitors hit more of your pages. From the looking at my traffic gambling before I had the site map installed on my blog and pointed out that I had fewer page views. Since i added the sitemap, the page views have increased by 50%. Simply by placing the XML sitemap file on your server, it enables Google's robots (a. okay. a. "bots") to crawl your web blog much easier and thereby communicating to the Google search engine that your site is user-friendly and easy to navigate. Let me give out where Google is coming from for a better understanding.
Your neighborhood retail complex has a site map. So, why doesn't your web site?
Think of how a "brick and mortar" grocery store or retail complex would structure their store if they wanted to sell you the products that they carry. They want to make your experience pleasant so you spend more time there and get more items. If products are too challenging to locate people simply get frustrated and leave subnautica map
. This is precisely the same philosophy that Google follows by placing the sitemap suggestion in their guide. Note that simply because Google is one of the most popular sites (I think Facebook just moved into #1), doesn't mean that you are adding a sitemap just for Google. I would like to point out that the other search engines use it too. So keep in mind that Yahoo!, Ask and Google are following the search engine giant by enjoying the XML sitemap file on your server as well.
The "bots" love your sitemap.
Keep in mind that the search engine bots are not as thinking about running and gobbling in the posts that you write as they are the pages that you have on your site or blog. So, it makes sense to keep the pages easy to get to for the search engines. Doing so will in turn give your posts much better popularity on the search engines. People searching for the keywords that you are trying to rank your pages and posts for will be able to find your details much easier. So, in this way your pages (and posts) will be ranked provided that you are implementing some on-page SEO techniques.
Now that you know the benefits of installing a sitemap on your site and how simple it is to do, I hope you take advantage of this little suggestion soon to help improve your visitors' experience as well as for the search engines' robots.
