    There's not much of a reason NOT to have a sitemap. It's a great benefit for you and enabling robots to see your whole site. TIP: place a link to your sitemap in your footer, so if a spider comes crawling one of your deeper pages, it'll find the rest of your site and your indexing will be stronger.

    No it is not needed but google would like it

    So if you want to be in googles good books and tick all their boxes you should get one

    If not then you don't really need to bother

    Yes, submitting sitemap is very important, because it let the crawler to access your site contents. Try to Re-submit your sitemap if you make any changes or add some new contents to your site.

    We use gSiteCrawler for all our Sitemap needs and we find that sites with them do much better. Just keep them current and updated. Also, you should have a Google Webmaster Tools account set up for your site. This give you Google feedback on what's going on with your site. It removes the guess work.

    Sitemap is not a mandatory thing to have for a website, but if you have a big website, you should have it to get better indexing in the search engines like Google, yahoo! and bing

    Place a link to your HTML sitemap (or the HTML version of the same sitemap).
    I am not pretty sure if you link your XML sitemap SEs will follow the entries from it during a regular crawl.

    For me the biggest advantage of the Sitemap is that if you log in to Google Webmaster Tools you can see how many pages of yours got indexed, so you follow the whole indexing process.

    Creating sitemap is the way to tells the Google about the pages / new pages and Title changes!

    The only drawback is, you can't tell the Google for the content changes on the website till the Google crawl in some days and give you better listing or dropped your listing!
