    Sitemap helps search engine to find all your website subpages, because sitemap usually lists all your website subpages.

    To tell searche engine (like google) where is your sitemap file, you need to add line example "Sitemap: http://yoursite.tld/sitemap.xml" into your file robots.txt

    Sitemaps must have certain format and robots.txt file too. to veriffy yours is correct, google: sitemap valid checker, robots valid checker

    PS: sitemaps are usually automatically generated when used content management system like wordpress etc. there are special sitemap plugins for it. Also there are online tools that generate sitemap for any webpage (google sitemap generator online)
