I don't like giving Google all my information. But since my tourist site did a drop after using a new, very different theme I broke down and just submitted a sitemap to them.

Sign up to google webmaster tools www.google.com/webmasters/tools/. Here you will find lots of information about your webistes including search trends, keywords that result your website, which sites are linking to your website. These things are necessary for Search Engine Optimization.
