How important do you think the process of submitting a sitemap to Google ? Does it help you ?

What is your experience ?

Very very useful. I have managed to get traffic even without a sitemap. But that was a couple of years ago. These days, Google cares a bit about crawl errors. I don't know whether it is a skin deep issue or not. But why take the risk when there are main official resources asking you to submit a sitemap if possible.

In most cases, yes. Google specifically ask for XML sitemap.

So you got a good start 👍

Nice for you. Make sure you keep the pace. Also, keep an eye on the search console for crawling errors.

By the way, how did you generate the sitemap ?

Considering your domain is very new, that is not a thing to worry about at this time.

Keep an eye on the search console.
