Sitemaps make navigating your site easier and having an updated sitemap on your site is good both for your users and for search engines. Sitemaps are an important way of communication with search engines.February 8, 2012 at 8:16 pm #33555MitzKeymaster
Very true! I use Yoast WPSEO plugin to create the sitemap in WordPress. This sends it to Google. Also I use cleanarchivesreloaded to make a sitemap of the whole site for people to browse.April 4, 2012 at 5:13 am #33556gladiolusParticipant
Sitemaps are a great way to let know the search engines about the latest updates of your site.Means if you submit sitemap in webmasters of search engines then the search engines will directly get the updates done in your site.September 3, 2012 at 6:24 am #33557JessicaJohnParticipant
Site maps have great importance in SEO field. There are two type of site maps HTML site map and XML site map. XML site map use for search engines and HTML site maps use for users.September 4, 2012 at 12:26 am #33558MitzKeymaster
I did not really answer the question about why it is important. Google uses the sitemap to index your pages and send crawlers out to it. The sitemap gets updated and Google sees this and crawls the new pages. This is why it is better to add fresh content more often.As I stated above I use Yoast's free WordPress WPSEO plugin... It does more than just sitemaps and is a must have plugin.October 30, 2012 at 5:10 am #33559Steve SmithParticipant
A sitemap is of great importance in the process of building a website, and that is indeed the fact if you made a sitemap for the sake of having one. By highlighting the importance of having a well constructed sitemap, you will be able to tailor your own sitemap to suit your own needs.October 31, 2012 at 3:38 am #33560KaseyWitteParticipant

A sitemap has a advantage for the search engines as well. This sitemap will let the Google robot see how pages, such as those in the fourth and fifth level, fit into your site. If you link to your sitemap page from your homepage, all of the pages listed in your sitemap will be no farther from your home page than the third level. This will encourage Google to index your entire site.January 15, 2013 at 11:28 am #33562jaysh4922Participant

Well sitemap is very important for a site. It improve the site visibility by the visitors through accessible navigation. Search engine bots crawled your site faster if you have a sitemap and by submitting the sitemap to the search engines, you can get indexed faster.You can download any sitemap generator tool to create your sitemap or even you can create them manually but it's time consuming.
