Hi folks,

the owner of /
is asking me to build a sitemap page.
I disagree with such a page at this stage,
there's in my opinion no need for such a page.

Do you think the above website needs a sitemap?

Dunno, suppose they're the one with the paycheck, you're the one who
want's it. What was the question again?

You are familiar with the site and no what's there. For a new
visitor, having a site map lets the visitor know what's available.
Many sites don't link to every area from a navigation bar. (My site
in the signature doesn't.) A site map need not list every last page
(this often becomes less useful than no site map) but should point
to all key areas.

Additionally it can give search engines an extra page to index.

LOL. But they're also paying for a professional service, if
something isn't necessary or advisable then you should let them know
as much. But, in the end it is their site;-)

Site maps have helped me on occations, I'll admit that. Other than that,
I have long since given up trying to convince a customer that what he
want's is silly, useless. Mostly, figuring out the costs, multiplying by
4-5 will get thir minds working 'right'.

Customers have, in my experience, the weirdest business cases. A
Marketing or Sales division wields loads of power. If their business
case says: give me a site map and I will increase revenue by $muchmoney,
they they tend to get their will..
