Is it necesary to generate sitemaps for old indexed urls?

Question:

Tag: seo,search-engine,sitemap

I have a web site with content from 2001 and I need to remake the sitemap. Question arises: if the old urls have already been indexed do I need to add them again (the same urls) to the sitemap even if not haven't changed?

for example:

the sitemap have this url and is generate always from 2006 http://www.semana.com/encuestas/encuesta/le-cree-encuestas-electorales/146255-3

Is it necessary to generate it again if it's already indexed?


Answer:

If the URLs are active and important from ranking perspective, it is better to have it in sitemap even if it is indexed already. It helps to provide metadata information like when page was last changed, how often it is changed etc.
