    Sitemap never gives high ranking but Sitemap is on of the important factor of the good seo friendly website.
    So If your site contains more than 4,5 pages then you must add sitemap link on every page.

    Sitemap makes website more user friendly as well as because of sitemap search engine robot easily identify your website structure.

    Site map is very important for seo point of view. This map shows the structure of your site. Google Sitemaps uses XML format site map that is different from the ordinary html sitemap for human visitors

    Site map is important for google to faster crawler your site. Googlebot usually visits your xml sitemap and check what pages are mentioned there.

    You should add a sitemap if your website is of many pages if it is a one page website i don't think you need a sitemap.

    adding a sitemap will ensure that all of your pages are getting crawled and indexed in Google which will help you to get free traffic
    ranking is a different factor and sitemap plays less or no role when it comes to ranking good in search engines.

    Site maps are good from a crawl point of view. Even if they had little difference to the ranking of your site would it hurt to add one any way?
