Creating an effective sitemap is one of the most important steps in the website development process. But what is a sitemap and why is it so critical to the success of the project?
What is a Sitemap?
Visually speaking, a sitemap is typically represented by labeled boxes, guiding lines and arrows. On a deeper level, a sitemap is just that, a map. Just as it is important to know where you’re going before you embark on any trip, a sitemap provides a point of reference for you and your client or company. Constructing a sitemap will also ensure you haven't forgotten anything and won’t have to start the process over.
