The Sitemap Module is an ExpressionEngine add-on that automatically generates a configurable sitemap of your website and notifies search engines about changes in your site. It is meant as an SEO tool for site administrators that use ExpressionEngine.
Sitemaps allow you to inform search engines about pages on your website that are available for crawling. A Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs within your site, as well as additional information about each URL such as when it was last updated, how often its content changes and its priority within the site. The purpose of this is to help search engines to more intelligently crawl your website, with the ultimate aim of improving your pagerank.

How It Works
The Sitemap Module consists of two parts - a module and an extension. The module allows you to select which weblogs to include in the sitemap and to set preferences for each weblog - its change frequency, priority and template. You can also add URLs to the sitemap and set their preferences.
The purpose of the extension is that every time an entry on your site is created or changed using the PUBLISH and EDIT tabs, several search engines are notified that your site content has changed. A Sitemap tab appears that allows you to select whether or not to notify the search engines. It is selected by default if you are creating a new entry. The search engines that are currently supported are Google, Bing and Ask.
