Optamizing Site Navigation

Site Map vs Navigation#

A site map lists the page structure of your website, detailing the actual pages that are available on your web site for the user. Navigation is the different ways users can look through your site to find content, whether it's the navigation across the top, or on the page itself.

What is Site Mapping

A site map is a model of a website's content designed to help both users and search engines navigate the site. A site map can be a hierarchical list of pages (with links) organized by topic, an organization chart, or an XML document that provides instructions to search engine crawl bots.
