I have asked that question, do I need a sitemap. I went without any for years because I just thought is was way to complicated to do. I tend to avoid technical tasks if at all possible, but there are many reasons why a sitemap might be helpful.
First it tells the search engines what your site is about and when you update it. It’s a list of pages on your website. It will help your site get indexed faster by Google. It can help with your search engine optimization. Isn’t that reason enough right there.
Also I stress if your site in brand new and you don’t have much internal linking going on in your site, a sitemap will be a help.
Now you are probably wondering where do I get a sitemap, and how do I submit it to Google. Now there is a Google site map creator, but then you have to download it, upload it into your domain root file. Gosh I barely know what a domain root file is. One thing I have discovered with this affiliate marketing stuff is that we think a lot of things are difficult when the actually are not.
