The Importance of Menu and a Sitemap

The Importance of Menu and a Sitemap
Published on June 11, 2012

A sitemap is often considered redundant in the process of building a website, and that is indeed the fact if you made a sitemap for the sake of having one. All of the template offered by Find Your Net are built with user in mind - ergo the simplicity of the website template is maintained and the main menu serves as the sitemap of the website. All main purposes of the sitemap are preserved as follows

- Navigation purposes - menu is available to all the website visitors.  It is always visible.  It is always self explanatory.  All main sections of the website are outlined in the main menu, and the user always know what page he or she is on.

- Conveying your site's theme - When your visitors load up the website, they will get the gist of your entire website within a very short amount of time. There is no need to get the "big picture" of your site by reading through each page, and by doing that you will be saving your visitors' time.

- Site optimization purposes - all menu elements are coded using actual text.  This is very important, so that all anchors for the pages on your websites are labeled correctly.  On top of that, XML sitemap is created each time you make a modification to your website. XML sitemap is a single page which contains links to every single page on your site.  This page is used by Search Engines to see what pages you are offering and to check the content on these pages. Imagine what happens when search engine robots hit this page - they will follow the links on the sitemap and naturally every single page of your site gets indexed by search engines! 

That pretty much covers it.  And as mentioned before, the sitemap is always built for you, just like the menu is.  All Find Your Net clients can access their XML sitemap by going to their URL followed by "/sitemap.xml".  This just an F.Y.I.  There is no work or action needed on your behalf, but we wanted to let you know that you never need to worry about this important S.E.O. element.  We made sure that it works for you in the background.

This is a great offer for a cheap website. So great that I sent them an email asking why the hosting of a full website would be so cheap. They only responded with two words: "Why not?" Well, thank you. Your service is saving me a lot of money and I love everything about it.

Frequent Questions

What if I already have a website??

If you already have a website and are completely satisfied with its capabilities, you may want to leave it as it is. If you register with Find Your Net, you will gain a fully operational profile and you can still pick a template that will work with a sub-domain under the main domain of Find Your Net that is associated with your type of business. In other words, if you have a hair salon website at www.johndoesalon.com, and you want to maintain it, you can have a secondary website at johndoe@findyournet.com hosted by us. If you want, we can also provide you with special code for embedding of your profile into your own website as an iframe. What this means is that you can create a new page at www.johndoesalon.com, and add your own profile from findyournet.com on the website itself. Of course if you're double guessing your own website, you can always switch and host your website with us.
