How to create and use HTML Sitemaps and how would that help your website
An HTML sitemap allows site visitors to easily navigate a website. It is a bulleted outline text version of the site navigation. The anchor text displayed in the outline is linked to the page it references. Site visitors can go to the Sitemap to locate a topic they are unable to find by searching the site or navigating through the site menus.
This Sitemap can also be created in XML format and submitted to search engines so they can crawl the website in a more effective manner. Using the Sitemap, search engines become aware of every page on the site, including any URLs that are not discovered through the normal crawling process used by the engine. Sitemaps are helpful if a site has dynamic content, is new and does not have many links to it, or contains a lot of archived content that is not well-linked.
An example of HTML sitemap, created for xml-sitemaps.com: sitemap.html (separated with 1,000 links per page)

What a fabulous resource you have given us. Besides the sitemaps generated, your link checked for broken links has saved me many hours.

I just found your site and used your online sitemap tool. Within a few minutes my sitemap was submitted to Google. Now we just need to sit back and let "The Big G" do it's magic.
I know sitemaps are important, but I never knew how to create one. Now I don't have to.
