An XML sitemap is an important feature for any website, especially for giving your SEO a head start. This module creates a dynamic sitemap so that search engines can successfully crawl your site.

The Sitemap module creates a public index of your site so that users can find what they are looking for. The index can include categories and the latest blog posts.
