Before going forward to add Sitemap page it is very important to understand the difference between HTML sitemap and XML sitemap.

What is XML Sitemap?

Actually, the Search engine uses their respective web crawlers (bots) to discover pages from links within the site and from other sites. XML Sitemap is a .xml file attached to your website which supplies this data to crawlers. Sitemap file consists of all posts URL with additional information regarding each URL. The Search engine uses this data to index your posts in the best possible way. Use of XML Sitemap file guarantees that your web pages will get indexed in search engines.
