Boxes and Arrows: Sitemaps and Site Indexes: What They Are and Why You Should Have Them

"Sitemaps and site indexes are forms of supplemental navigation. They give users a way to navigate a site without having to use the global navigation.

Sitemaps are more widely implemented than site indexes, but both have their place and fulfill a unique information need."
