map of the HTML format is to the user to find what they want or the entrance, the map will certainly be search engine grab. The equivalent of a signpost, so that users will not find on the website of the
finally, I think all the best site should establish an independent XML map, which is of great help for the search engine rankings do not lose the greater, the search engine ranking is often due to a fine details and determines of ranking.
in the strict sense, the XML map is a site map of Shanghai dragon R often talk, this map is the general search engine to see, let the spider to distinguish between primary and secondary directory on the sites and grab the more accurate, we usually see the Sina portal can be the instant search engine grab XML is because the map effect, long time stay in XML spider map, so as to timely grasp of information.
