XML or HTML Sitemap is a guide for google to crawl and index your webpages smoothly.
If search engine crawl your site smoothly you have more change of ranking in SERP.

Joe's post above is very informative. Having a site map is still a good idea, but not the end-all be-all that it used to be. But it can help you see which pages Google has indexed, which is handy.

More importantly (besides the obvious idea of good content) to make sure that your internal link structure is good and functions properly.
