    Depending if it is a blog or not ...

    I'd say if you are producing content everyday then yes if not then only when new content is produced. Example, with an auto blog I'd have it update every day. With an occasional blog maybe once or twice per week. Nothing less than once a week though.

    The sitemap helps in letting the google know about the refreshed contents in your site / page but that will not guarantee indexing.

    Once your site is listed in Google Webmaster Tools and Yahoo Site Xplorer they will auto check the site map for changes but there is a button in both of them to resubmit manually.

    The sitemaps help the Google spiders. Also, you'll need a sitemap for their Webmaster Central.

    possible that your site has black seo? than sure it would not help. but in general it helps. but i must say that if your site is properly built than sitemap is not needed at all.

    Sitemap is a collection of all your links on the website, submitting just one link to the Google helps you crawling all the links which are on that page, this technique of submitting Sitemap helps you to faster indexing

    Hi,

    Just want to ask a question, bit confuese of the site map, I have build the site map before it split into 5 files each of them at least let say 2K links, but noticed it ony indexed 10% each an average 190 on each file.
    Is this normal ? or should I expect to index all the links ?

    Thanks . .

    I've found that if your site is already well indexed, i.e. it's been around for a few years and you're not trying to get the crawler's attention for the first time, you can get by handily with content control, good use of redirects/.htaccess for handling inbound links to expired content, and an intelligent robots.txt file.

    Anyone else share this experience?
