Uses of Sitemap Templates
Visual sitemaps are useful for planning the structure and navigational flow of a website. The diagram provides a breakdown of the page hierarchy — basically, the typical path a user would take to visit each webpage.
Sitemaps are beneficial during website development and maintenance for:
- Visualizing the user experience
- Optimizing the conversion funnel
- Improving website ranking and usability
- Planning a website expansion

How to create your own Sitemap
First of all, open the Sitemap Template in Cacoo.
Label the first box with the name of the top page in your website hierarchy, such as the homepage.
Next, identify the pages that are accessible from the top page. List them in the boxes connected to the top page. Remove any elements you don’t need.
For each page listed, consider what page comes next in the hierarchy. What navigational options does the user have on that page?
Finish outlining the structure of the site, and use the arrows to show the relationships between pages. All done!
