I am pretty new to all of this, I have just created my web site and am now trying to generate traffic. I heard that you need to create a sitemap.xml to submit to google. I have now created one but what do I do with it now? how do I submit this file to google?

i'm sure you'll find this in the google doc, but you keep your sitemap.xml file in the root directory.

thanks guys, I have now put my sitemap in my directory with my index page so now do I have to link it together or can I just go and submit it as www.mysite.com/sitemap.xml?

Upload your site map to your root directory like such:
www.mysite.com/sitemap.xml

Log into Google Webmaster Tools.
Click on the sitemaps tab.
Click add a Sitemap.
Choose general Sitemap.
Enter the URL where your site is (ie: www.mysite.com/sitemap.xml)
Click add web sitemap.

.. Sorted ..

you do NOT have to link to the sitemap.xml from your index page.
