That sounds fine. If it's a new site, you need to choose one and stick with it. If it's an established site, you need to look at where most of the best inbound links go to already, and stick with that.
That's not great but lots of people do it. Your way (i.e. using / rather than /pagetitle) is better, but often developers struggle with that. If they are struggling, then this is one instance where I would use a temporary (302) rather than a permanent (301) redirect.
we asked for a automated xml sitemap to be setup, again they refused to set this up as Google will index all pages no matter if there is a sitemap or not, all of the page links are at the top of the page and easy to index. Of what I can see, all pages have been indexed
Depends why you use an XML sitemap. If you use it purely for indexing, they're probably right - it's not essential. If you use it to improve your reporting in Webmaster Tools, then you need one.Go to the full post
