Just come across this sitemap generator

http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

This has just created an XML file for me called sitemap.xml
if I place this in my root site folder is that what I should do?

What is this XML file for? Google?

In Google Webmaster XML file page, there is a link to the help files:

Yes I thought it was, why did you think a sitemap was supposed to be written in HTML?

I don't know much about them to be honest the code it generated was

ignore the site design this is a site I'm replacing

Yes I thought it was, why did you think a sitemap was supposed to be written in HTML? Yeah most sitemaps are/were HTML. Google and Yahoo asks for a separate XML file though for reliable data structure.

Well am I doing things properly by just uploading this XML file or should i be something else too?

Also are they worth doing anyway?
