Sitemaps are basically a list of all URL's on your website organised in a structured way with basic information.
They help search engines like Google, quickly find your website and present pages when relevant. Google's "Googlebot" for instance, continuously explores the web, moving from page to page and along the way records information about the various links it visits and how they’re related. Google then uses this data to create search results, and determine what searches a particular piece of content is most relevant for.
If you want your website to rank well in terms of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), having a well thought through and clear sitemap is critical if you want to drive organic traffic.
