    When I first I submitted my XML sitemap to Google my blog got crawled and indexed almost immediately. And when it gets submitted after I make a new post, same thing. A search for "post specific" text comes up in Google within minutes.

    I have a WordPress blog and use the "Google XML Sitemaps" plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...map-generator/

    Generally it allows your website to get indexed faster. You can read this sitemaps explanation to learn about different sitemap file kinds and when to use them.

    Using sitemap.xml for a website is really helpful in getting your website's important pages along with other pages in SEs much faster than normal. I must agree with "Mittineague" he is rite and u can visit official site sitemap.org for more clarification.
