I've never utilized any of these, and I'm wondering if any of them could help with SEO.
If #1 is worthwhile, what is the proper method to use?
I've read #2 can lead to scraper problems, although I'm a retailer and my copy isn't very valuable.
Is #3 just a private way of utilizing #2?
Site maps are usable for both SEO and for a user that doesn't want to fumble through all the menus of a complicated site to fidn what they need. Google knows this and gives you a nice bonus for this from what I understand.
