Here’s Why You Need a Visual Sitemap Displayed in Simple HTML:

If you’ve ever looked at a technical SEO audit for your website, you may have seen something in the report along the lines of: “X number of pages need more than 1 click to be reached”. This is a big technical SEO issue that’s holding your website back from the traffic you could be earning from Google. An HTML sitemap can fix that for you. While you should be looking through pages that show up in those reports and finding ways to interlink them contextually, that’s not always possible 100% of the time. But if your build out a proper sitemap like this one, you can ensure your ‘click depth’ doesn’t get out of hand…

Why HTML Sitemaps are Important for SEO and Planet Earth

As your site grows, a metric called ‘click depth’ tends to become an issue. If it takes bots more than 1 click to reach an inner page or post from your homepage, you’re using up too many server resources and wasting electricity. Google hates that because they have a stated goal of making all their data centers not just carbon neutral, but actually carbon positive within a few short years.

By placing a complete sitemap in your website’s footer section, you’ll avoid or eliminate all these click depth issues in one fell swoop. You’ll make Google happy…

Okay, so this is where your click-depth issues are most likely to come into play…

Your CMS will most likely ‘paginate’ your posts at some point. This means that you will have a blogroll that’s split into multiple pages. Once you get past 10 or 15 posts in WordPress or a similar CMS, it will paginate the older posts to a new page that now takes 2 clicks to reach from your homepage. Keep adding blog content and your click depth will increase. This causes Googlebot to work harder trying to crawl through your links and find those pages on your website. Not having an HTML sitemap on a site with a large blog is literally bad for the environment.

To fix this quickly and efficiently, add all new blog posts to an HTML sitemap that’s linked to from your website’s homepage. This easy SEO fix helps your site ranking in Google and reduced electricity use in their data centers. Help Google and Google will help you…There’s over 1.7 billion websites out there [at the time of writing] for Googlebot to crawl. It’s a strain on their data centers. Help them keep CPU usage down and help yourself out at the same time by publishing a great HTML sitemap that’s clickable from your website’s homepage.
