  1. Great Post! Thanks for this informative post and the good thing is that you can build sitemap online. A sitemap reveals the initial definition of what you are going to offer on your website. This gives you an opportunity to make a good impression especially to new visitors who don’t have an idea how to navigate on your website. Simple structures work well but avoid the danger of making it too basic to be misunderstood. You can reference it in sitemaps, content strategies and functional specifications and it’s also a great way to show to the client what you are planning to build them.

  2. Can we need to submit one time sitemap in blogger after it will update automatically…..

    Thanks advance
