    A sitemap is a way of telling search engines of all the new pages from your site. It is very important to have one for your site. You can use the Webmaster tools from google to submit one or you can manually notify google of content changes from your site with their "ping" option.

    How to notify site changes to Google?

    Sitemap tells Google bot where to crawl your site. Example your index.html is easy to find and that's what Google would add in search engine. But if you have more content than just index.html, Google needs a little bit of help, and you can speed up that process with submitting your sitemaps to Google webmaster tools. When you add em, Google is going to ping em, so it's going to get new and more informations about your site every time you submit new content to your sitemaps.

    Because Wordpress has good ping service. You can find the plugin named Google Sitemap Generator Plugin for WordPress by Arne Brachhold.

    There are actually 2 different thinks you want to do for a sitemap.
    For Google creating a XML sitemap helps get more of your pages indexed faster - using a wordpress plugin such as Arne Brachhold's as already suggested.
    This creates info Google can see and read - but nothing for your visitors

    But you might also want to create an Index or Site Map page for your site so that you have links from one page to every other page on your site.
    This helps SEO and gives you a single hub page you can send visitors to with other links.
    I use the wordpress plugin by Dagon Design Sitemap Generator
    Just install the plugin and add a new page to your blog with a title Index, Site Map or anything else you like and in the content box (after selecting HTML tab!!!) add
    <!-- ddsitemapgen -->
    Syntax for this is important - so copy and paste it.

    In a sitemap you place all of the links of your site that you want the Search Engine to know about and the pages that you want seen in the Search Engine results. These would normally be the pages that are very deep in your site that would otherwise be missed by the crawlers when they visit your site. You can submit your site to Google via Google's Webmaster Tools.

    Create a xml sitemap of your site and submit it to google webmaster tools. It is the best way for indexing your site pages in google.
