...Sitemap Is One Of The most important part of seo friendly Website...Thanks.

Unless you have a huge web site, the need to include a site map is over rated. When all the webpages are available from the standard navigation system located on every webpage, the search engine can easily crawl the pages and the Internet visitor can easily find them. When the search engines request to include a site map, that suggestion is aimed at larger web sites that can be more difficult to fully spider.

the only relevant answer, when one provider has this much of the market, they dictate terms

When your site is ready:

  • Submit it to Google at http://www.google.com/addurl.html.
  • Submit a Sitemap using Google Webmaster Tools
    Google uses your Sitemap to learn about the structure of your site and to increase our coverage of your webpages.
  • Make sure all the sites that should know about your pages are aware your site is online

Submitting a sitemap is the second item in Google's instruction sheet

Don't get me wrong, a Google Sitemap can be essential for larger site but there is nothing more ridiculous than a five page website with a hyperlink to their "Site Map" when absolutely every page is accessible from every page. People include a web page with just the Site Map on it because the "search engine" suggests it and it has become standard in web design. What the search engine means is that if you have a site whose linking structure is difficult or impossble to crawl and you want to ensure that we can find your difficult to find pages then submit a sitemap and we'll find your stuff. Rather than correct your navigational system, force feed the spider. In this scenario, Google wants to compensate for poorly developed linking structure, which, because of the enomous amount of sloppy web design in today's Internet, is kind of pitiful in a way. If webmasters could accomodate their designs to meet the need of search engine crawlers then the search engines wouldn't "require" site maps or Sitemaps. Rather than penalize for sloppy design, as they often say they will, they encourage more of it. Typical Google.

Thanks Fred
required clarification to prior posts
Google requests refer only to a machine readable xml sitemap, the xml schema for a sitemap includes other fields than just location, change frequency as example, to aid in scheduling spiders <- of course to the SE's benefit more than the site owner's

Not a html sitemap accessible to humans, no site should require that for the reasons in CanadaFred's post, proper design.
every page should be accessible from logically structured links

Sitemap for me is not for indexing but to guide the users a navigation for them.

mokmok,
if you need a sitemap for that, you need more to consider fixing the navigation
