can any 1 tell me sitemap is important for SEO or not what is the benefit of site-map ?

Hi, Ghazi119

A well-structured and up-to-date Sitemap file would be helpful for search engines to index more thoroughly and deeply but would not have direct benefits for SEO or indexing purpose.

all the best,

Sitemaps provide a way for you to let Google know about all the pages on your site, and prioritize which pages are more important, and how often pages are updated. It is meant to offer Google some additional guidance in how to best crawl and index your site.

Yes, the cscgal (Queen) is correct. Sitemaps are for indexing purpose.
