A sitemap is a tool that can be used to visualize the structure of a website. While it lists the web pages or the content of a website, it helps you identify the information your website should consist of, remove redundant or duplicate content and make sure it has easy navigation and is user-friendly. Basically a sitemap is a tool that can be used to plan a website, its design as well as its development.
