A sitemap is like a website’s map, guiding search engines to all its pages. It’s an XML file listing page URLs and additional info for better search engine crawling. While it doesn’t guarantee inclusion in search results, it enhances the chances by providing metadata like last update, change frequency, and importance.

All government websites should have a sitemap.
