Hi guys,

just a bit of fog clearance if you are worried about sitemaps – they can help Google see all your pages on larger sites but are not usually necessary for smaller sites, assuming your site is crawlable (i.e. it has navigation and/or other internal linking the spiders can see).

Having your pages seen by Google does not mean they will rank well!

I often see people get worried about their sitemap’s presence or accuracy only to find they have a 6 page website with clear navigation!

Don’t sweat over sitemaps unless you have a very large site or one with ‘my designer said it was really cool’ navigation!
