    Hi Friends,
    XML stands for Extensible Markup Language. Search engines and other crawlers are the only consumers of XML sitemaps. For SEO, an XML sitemap is an invitation to crawl the URLs listed. It's a way of asking the search engines to crawl and index the pages listed. There are some important limitations to XML sitemaps.

    XML Sitemaps are especially important if:

    You have pages on your site created dynamically (e.g. some e-commerce sites)
    Your site is not well-structured or well-linked (internal links)
    Your site has few external links or is new (a newly developed site just set “live”)
    Your site is large and/or has lots of archived content that may not be well-linked

    The Sitemaps protocol allows a webmaster to inform search engines about URLs on a website that are available for crawling. A Sitemap is an XML file that lists the URLs for a site.
    This allows search engines to crawl the site more efficiently and to find URLs that may be isolated from the rest of the site's content.

    A Sitemap is an XML file that lists the URLs for a site. This allows search engines to crawl the site more efficiently and to find URLs that may be isolated from rest of the site's content. The sitemaps protocol is a URL inclusion protocol and complements robots.txt , a URL exclusion protocol.
