I own a website which is marketed by another company. It is a new site ( approx 3 weeks old ) and I am keen to get the site optimized ASAP. I have suggested to them ( the company who manage/market the website ) to incorporate a Sitemap which I have created. However they inform me that:

"most search engines(including Google) use spiders to retrieve site pages and as we link all pages via navigation buttons I don't really see the point in a site map page"

Are they right?

    You're pages will most likely get crawled and indexed if you have a good internal linking structure, but obviously it never hurts to submit a sitemap.

    While they may be right, submitting a sitemap will remove any doubt that the search engines are aware of all of the pages on your website. In other words, I highly recommend that you encourage them to submit a sitemap for your website. Only positive result can come about from doing this.

    You may also look into creating a HTML sitemap that highlights all important sections and then link that from all places.
