You put time, care and attention into every single one of the pages on your site…but, sadly, Google doesn’t seem to recognize and drive traffic to every page of your site.

What’s a Sitemap?
Every single Web site has a sitemap, even if you don’t know what it is or where to find it. This is just a list of the pages your Web site offers. All the pages you have listed in your HTML editor are part of your sitemap. Whenever you create a new page, you’re also creating a new entry on your sitemap. This index of pages is the sum and total of your site. Want Google to pay attention to those pages? You’ll have to learn how to submit them.
