Site Map Extensions
There is no Core Site Map Extension included with the Joomla! CMS.
But there are several 3rd Party Site Map Extensions available for you to use in the Joomla! Extensions Directory.
We like OSMap by Joomlashack.

Reasons to install a Site Map
Site Map Extensions make it easy to publish an HTML Site Map in your website.
And to create XML Site Map URLs for submission to search engines.
When appropriately configured Site Maps:
- indicate to search bots which content should receive priority attention,
- inform search bots how often you modify your website content, and
- help search bots efficiently crawl your website content.
Another way you can help search bots is by ensuring your website's Robots TXT file:
- is not preventing them from browsing your website content, and
- is pointing them to your website's XML Site Map URLs.
