    Most small businesses possess a straightforward site and think a roadmap is not necessary,
    but no matter how simple the website, the search engines utilize these maps to determine
    what your site are about, providing additional relevancy
    on the page by page basis. Search engine rankings provide this
    credibility, if a site has many valuable backlinks, that will rank better inside a Google, Bing, Yahoo.
    Be certain to place keywords and phrases at the outset of the Title Tag.
