I have added sitemap of my site to google last week, but when i search in google inside my site i get nothing...
Does the sitemap module needs to be visible ?

First, the Sitemap module has to be active and visible to the public. Next, when you submit the sitemap to Google, it gives you a status of what it's reading.

Did you sign up for an account at Google?
I can log into my Google account and see when Google last downloaded and read the SiteMap and the last time Google indexed my site along with a bunch of other stats. It will also tell me if there are any errors in the SiteMap which is preventing it from being read.

You do have to have an account setup with Google in order for it to work. (This is covered in the documentation for NukeSEO)
Google has to verify you are the owner of the site in order to start using your SiteMap. (Otherwise, what a disaster that might be if anyone could submit a sitemap!!)

Or if you've already done all that, and no errors are showing for your SiteMap, it can take Google awhile to index everything. Noone is really sure of the time table Google uses to index things. Maybe its ruled by the phases of the moon or hundreds of trained monkeys pushing buttons at random...who knows.

I've had my SiteMap up for a couple months and things are just now starting to get rolling. You may want to use the other opitmization tools to make sure your site is"Google-friendly" as a SiteMap will not alone guarantee this. You need to make sure your robots.txt is good, the meta tags are in order, the keywords are relevent, have good backlinks (which is probably the most important, imho) etc etc.

And as I've seen written on this site before, SEO is a journey not a destination. In other words, its a step by step thing that you need to constantly be on top of and improving.

Ok I'm done repling now.

For real.
