Iíve been told that adding a site map to our website increases the chance of
search engines linking to other pages in our site. Any truth to this?
Neither of our sites have a site map.
Thatís sort of a confused version of the truth. If the engines donít seem
to have all the pages of your site in their databases, a sitemap might help
them find and add them. But as long as your site navigation is such that
the engines can crawl through it fine, the sitemap really isnít necessary.
However, if you have a very large site, sitemaps can be very helpful to both
your site visitors and the search engines.
Hope this helps!
