Re: Creating a site map to submit to Google and help search engines crawl my page

I think we are talking two different type of sitemaps.  😉

 

Here is a service that will create a sitemap file that you can then submit to Google:

 

https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

 

As far as linking to your sitemap on your home page, I would link to a sitemap created for humans -- not the XML sitemap for Google which is not very userfriendly for site visitors.  

 

Your site visitor "sitemap" can be a list of important links within your site and categories to guide them to what they are looking for. This is a handy feature for folks who just what to drill down to what they are looking for.

 

You can create a simple HTML file with the basic structure of your site as links.  Too many links will defeate the purpose so just top level stuff will suffice.

 

HTH! 😉
