I have just gone into business with a friend (bricks n mortar business) and our website is brand new and yet to get Indexed.
I see everyone recommends submitting the Sitemap to Google.
Now for some reason our Webdesigner did not do a Sitemap as they were not doing the SEO.
I asked them to do one for us, and they are going to charge us.
Is a Sitemap necessary? Do we need one for SEO or will the Site get picked up with other means?
Just seems strange we are being charged...I thought it would have been included.
Anyway, would love to hear your thoughts.
