I am used to making a sitemap for websites that have sub-navigation's in them. What if it's a smaller website that has no sub-navigation? Will the sitemap look as simple as this?


There is no sub-navigation to break it down more so will that be it or is there something I'm missing?

    What's wrong with that? I look for a ToC even in a 20 pages book... Oct 5, 2015 at 20:29

    yes. it's as simple as that, yo don't need to invent anything in order to have a sitemap "just because"

Yes is the answer to your question. Why would you invent additional levels?

Sitemap - the term

The term sitemap is ambiguous, it may denote:

  • The hierarchical navigation taxonomy
  • A group of links at the bottom of a page providing the most relevant links to other parts of the site
    • Like at the bottom of this page
    • With an on-going argument regarding their contribution to SEO.

I guess you mean the former.
