In Google Webmaster Tools, once you have uploaded the sitemap.xml and confirmed that Google has found it - doesn't every time the spider come back it looks for that xml file and reads it again? I was told recently that you have to continue uploading it any time you make changes. Please advice.

Hi brains,

You don't have to upload again but it is thought to speed up the re-indexing.

It's like Google has been told that something has changed and they should look. If you don't it will come around on the next scheduled cycle before it sees the change.
