    Oh yes it is:
    http://66.102.11.104/search?q=cache:...tu+-%3ESiteMap

    But you have PR0 and no backlink's to your domain visible yet. Continue to add link's and content, and you will start climbing.

    It is indexed just as a PR0 - give it time at least another update before it shows above PR0, probably a PR3, you will need a few PR4's to get it to rank as a PR4 and possibly more text, rather than just the site map links. A site summary and a small summary of each page or at least each section should be enough.

    Why do you want your site map to register? I have made mine FOLLOW, NOINDEX for just that reason. It contains no information of use to anyone. If you land on the site you should land on a relevant page, not on a site map. I would just go away again.

    a sitemap can be nice for search engines to use internally to find the other pages of your site.

    it's unlikely anyone will land on a sitemap (they'd have to search for something that only appears there..)

    I find pages with a long listing of links is for some reason liked by Google.. I have witnessed this too many times for it not to be a coincidence.

    (they'd have to search for something that only appears there..)

    True, but then a long list of links tends to have lots of relevant keywords, i.e. like titles of pages or article titles.

    As Disgust rightly points out a site map is useful for search engines to find deep pages or if you use non search engine friendly navigation. It is easy to ensure anyone landing on this page is immediately pointed to your home page or other pages of interest with good page design.

    I agree wholeheartedly that a good site needs a site map if it has more than about 10 pages. I do not particularly want mine to be indexed. Followed, yes, indexed, no. It is a navigation aid for people and robots, not a source of information. Just my opinion.

    If it is not indexed then how often will it be "followed", it is more likely to be ignored by SE spiders and any navigation benefit lost or marginal. If the site map page has no PR it cannot pass that onto the the other pages either.

    Better to make it a "quality " site guide in my opinion, but it is only my opinion and I do see your point.

    My site has about 120 pages, so Ihave two site maps to stay under the recommended 100 links on a page. If I add text as well, then it will become a huge page. It gets followed quite often since I put it in my forum signature ocassionally. It is bound to be visited every time the site is crawled since it is linked to every other page in both directions. a page with 100 links on it is not going to pass on much PR at the best of times.
