Hello listers,
Greetings for the day!
In recent discussion, many of my team members had some queries about
the placement of the link "sitemap"within a website, wherein a sitemap
would refer to link to a site map that lists all of the resources that
were present in the site.

As a predictability in most of the web pages, the sitemap used to be
within the footer.
Whereas, let me know your thoughts about the placement of the sitemap
within the header which was a design requirement.

i.e.when read with a screen reader, sitemap would beĀ  above the search field.
Thanks in advance for your response.
