    Hi,

    Answers to your questions.

    What is Google Sitemap?

    Please check below link where you will get explanation about Google Sitemap.
    http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=40318

    Why we use Google Sitemap?

    Need to use sitemap because it provides all important links of a website. Through sitemap search engines can easily find and index your website's urls in their database. This is helpful to gain SE ranking and traffic to your website.

    So Google sitemap helps Google Crawler (Googlebot) to crawl your website easily and so Google can assign ranking to your important WebPages.

    Can we use sitemap in blog?

    Yes you can add Google sitemap for blogs also. Please check below helpful link.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Cheers...!!!

    I have never submitted a site map, for those sites where I have one I have added a link to the site map on my front page.

    As for what it is, it helps the search engines find their way around your site, but personally I think so long as the links are from you front page and you have links coming in then the search engines will find all your pages anyway.

    I haven't not done it on purpose its just a case of time I can create new sites and promote them or spend time submitting site maps or link building or ...

    There's so much to do to promote a site I just don't see it as a priority

    I think is a interesting tool, because it gives you more information about the sites. It's not only to promote a site.

    Google sitemap is important for google crawler to crawl your site easily and quick when you make new changes in your site and update the sitemap. As well as it is useful for user point of view. User can esaly find which he need.

    When you reach a place it will be good if you have map showing all locations for there . Similarly the google bot can easily find out contents of your site through site map

    I think this site is very usefull for you to creat sitemap for your website.
    In case of using a dynamic website, your sitemap need to have a php function to do this work. The tool online only support for static site. For example, with wordpress, you can use google sitemap plugin is very good. Have fun. Try more find out which tool is best for you. Here is an example

    The site map is an XML file format that holds links to the internal network of a site. (This is the correct definition.) However, many SEO scripts for bulletin boards such as VB and PHPBB use links in the footer with numbers as a representation of site maps. The actual effectiveness of this method is unknown, but see below for an example:

    1234567891011121314151617181920212223

    Is your typical lazy SEO of a sitemap... Use a real XML file sheet linking in your META data for real results.
