How to Create a Site Map

"Learn How Creating a Site Map Will Help Your Search Engine Rankings"

There are several reasons to create a site map.

Often, it's a step that everyone thinks about, but inevitably, we don't pay enough attention to it.

I've found myself at fault in the past, too.

Let's find out why creating a site map is so important and how you can make sure that yours works!

Why Is Building a Site Map So Important?

If you're a loyal reader of, you've heard me say that the most popular websites please both human visitors and the internet spiders.

Well, building a website map practically ensures that you'll be able to please both.

For the humans, it's a treasure map.

And, for the internet spiders, your website map is an easily indexed file that reveals every page of your site for them.

Nothing could be easier, right? Let's make sure there's nothing easier.

How to Build a Site Map

In an ideal world, we'd want to add to our site map every time we've built a new web page.

But, if you've fallen behind, it'll be easy to catch up.

Your website map will exist as any other page does on your website.

"Note for SBI Users"

Those of you using SiteBuildIt! will want your site map to be a Tier 2 page!

For those of you not familiar with the SBI 3-Tier structure, this means that no page is more than 2 clicks from your home page.

This makes your blueprint easily understandable and easy to navigate.

Your Sitemap Outline

Your website map will be in outline form with the major sections of your website (Tier 2's) clickable and listed in bold.

Each of your Tier 2 pages should have several subheadings (Tier 3's) also clickable.

Take a look at the Sitemap for an example.


Committed to your success,
