I was reading a thread in the subreddit \SEO, and there were about ten different people saying that sitemaps are only necessary for large sites or sites that do not display all the pages somewhere in the menu. Am I wasting my time creating a sitemap and an image sitemap? I assumed it was important to help Google understand the structure of your site.
 
I would say that sitemaps are important for all websites as they help search engines find and index your content.
 
Hi Dear,

Creating a sitemap can still be beneficial, regardless of the size of your website or if all pages are displayed in the menu. Sitemaps help search engines understand the structure and organization of your website, and can potentially improve your website's visibility and ranking in search results.
