A sitemap enables gives search engines a full understanding of your websites structure. Without it, you depend on the search engine to find all relevant pages and also that the engine will keep its knowledge up-to-date. But since we all know search engines are busy workers which sometimes rather crawl the big players on the web than small sites, it can be advantageous to give your favorite (or most important) search engines a helping hand. For further information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sitemaps.

Since this blog is also about understanding the techniques behind blogging, I installed the Google Sitemaps plugin which generates a sitemap of an WordPress blog automatically and whenever a new entry is posted. So this leaves about no-work-at-all to you. I like it.
