    Was talking to a friend who mention something about not needed a google sitemap anymore.
    Keep in mind the conversation was about getting websites indexed and ranking for keywords ect
    Is it still a good idea to use a Google Sitemap?

    I believe Google sitemap is one of the important thing to be done in Google webmaster tool. And, I think it's still important for SEO. You can sign up for Google Webmaster tool which will be beneficial for you.

    Having an XML sitemap is one thing that isn't likely to change in the future. The sitemap ease indexing and also shows in GWT which pages return errors if there are any.

    Yes, Google sitemap is a important factor. It is a good way to tell search engines that your website is available and that it can be crawled by them.

    Yes, It is always high-quality that you have Sitemaps for your website. An XML sitemap is always good for the search engine to index out the complete web pages of your website.

    yes sitemap is necessary because when Google comes on site to crawl firstly check the all page in sitemap than index easily so sitemap is compulsory

    If you do not report a site map to Google, the webcrawler is forced to manually search the site, which could easily lead to them not indexing large parts of the website if they can't find all the links. There is no reason not to tell Google where your site map is, it only helps.
