    The larger your site the more important, for instance a blog of a few hundred posts is fine without one, a blog with tens of thousands of post for sure needs one. I have noticed that there is a significant difference in indexing for large sites when not having a proper sitemap submitted to Google. (autoblogs)

    If there is a sitemap available, Google crawls deeper into the site. For instance, the first couple of visits it may only crawl 3 layers deep but with a site map there is only 2 layers. The sitemap and then a link to every page.

    Anything
    -that simple to implement,
    -that makes those spiders hungry for more
    -that gets real visitors clicking on the content
    that you don't want them to miss
    is what you do to stay in the game.
    Just do it.
