Site Mapping

If you've been surfing the Web for some time, you've surely come across sites that contain a site map or index to help you navigate the site. Site maps not only help the end user, however. They also are a great planning exercise for your site. Working from a site map ensures that you have considered the future growth of the site and allows you to predetermine the subdirectories and filenames you want to use.
