Also if you your site has pages that you are worried wont be discovered by Googlebot during their crawl of your site. Flash websites are good examples of this. If your site has very few or no links to it Then a google xml sitemap will alert googlebot to the presence of your pages and ensure they get indexed in a timely fashion.
You can also use an xml Sitemap to provide Google with good and useful information about your website. For eg. You can tell google with your xml sitemap just how often your pages change such as daily or weekly. more about google sitemap options . Also with the use of priority then you can let google know which pages are most important to you and that you want them to spider and index first.
Google says the following:
" Sitemaps provide additional information about your site to Google, complementing our normal methods of crawling the web. We expect they will help us crawl more of your site and in a more timely fashion, but we can't guarantee that URLs from your Sitemap will be added to the Google index. Sites are never penalized for submitting Sitemaps."

Creating a Google compliant sitemap can be a time consuming process. with xml sitemap generator, you no longer need to be concerned by this, as we will create a fully maintained xml and html sitemap for you and even submit it to google.

Having a Google compliant xml sitemap has many benifits. The main benifit, is that it improves the indexing of your website's pages, which can result in more traffic finding your site.
Sitemaps, especially html sitemaps ( a collection of links to all the pages on your site) also act as a navigation aid by providing an overview of a site's content at a single glance. Also a lot of search engines only follow a finite number of links from a page, so if the number of links is very large, the site map may be required so that search engines and visitors can access all content on the site.
Having a Sitemap and submitting it to Google, helps make sure that Google knows about all the pages on your site. Also with out automatic detection of how often your pages are changed and the ability to share the preference of your pages with google (meaning the ones that you would like google to spider and index first.), you can be assured that google will index new pages as quickly as is possible This also helps get more of your pages indexed within google which in turn can help increase traffic to you website.
For larger sites that use the premium service, we will do a full link following spidering of your site once every two weeks. We will also be able to tell if the pages have been modified and so can change the last modified part of the xml sitemap to reflect the change. This is the best service you can provide to google. It ensures that all of your sites pages are indexed and are spidered more often by google.
Since MSN, Yahoo, Ask, and Google use the same protocol, having a sitemap lets the four biggest search engines have the updated page information. Sitemaps do not guarantee all links will be crawled, and being crawled does not guarantee indexing. However, a sitemap is still the best insurance for getting a search engine to learn about your entire site. The importance of sitemaps
Google introduced Google Sitemaps so web developers can publish lists of links from across their sites. The basic premise is that some sites have a large number of dynamic pages that are only available through the use of forms and user entries. The sitemap files can then be used to indicate to a web crawler how such pages can be found. Google, MSN, Yahoo and Ask now jointly support the Sitemaps protocol.
XML sitemaps have replaced the older method of "submitting to search engines" by filling out a form on the search engine's submission page. Now web developers submit a sitemap directly, or wait for search engines to find it.
