Hi Zane.

Which one are you talking about, the one that is made with the setup of your site, or one that you are to make.

You don't have to make one, but it enables your visitors to view the site easily and makes it more accessible... It also give you a better ranking with Search Engines

Hi Zane

There are two types of sitemaps. One for search engine robots, to help them crawl your site and one for human visitors to assist with the navigation of your site.

For detailed instructions on verifying your site with Google Webmaster and submitting a sitemap, see: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/google-...

If you want to create a sitemap for your visitors you can do this using our link editor. For a tutorial on creating links, see: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/creatin...

Once you have reviewed that information, if anything is still unclear, please get back to us.
