Designing a good site map is critical to every site with more than a few web pages. Often, visitors need to find a site map simply to discover what important information your site contains and if they even wish to stay and read it!

A user friendly website also provides a good web site menu for quick reference. Making website visitors feel safe, is critical to building a successful web site.
