There is a lot of difference between sitemap and HTML.firstly,the HTML written fpr the users and HTML stand sfor hypertext markup language.A XML sitemap protocol is specifically intended for search engine spiders. At its root, XML is a file that includes all the behind the scenes activity on a web site. Not just the site’s main URL, but all the URLs within the site along with the associated metadata. This can include when the URL was last updated, how important it is .TML is just a general overview of the site, just the pages and info a user needs to be concerned with. If you’re on a web site and you’re looking for the shopping cart or the Contact Us page and can’t find it, you’d go to the sitemap and easily find it there.

Both the sitemaps are necessary. HTML Sitemap is used for Users and XML Sitemap is used for Search Engines.

That's not true... While HTML sitemap is for users, it is not necessary and especially on small websites. HTML Sitemap is designed for large websites that have many pages. The idea behind an HTML Sitemap was to make is easy for visitors to navigate a large website.

Both have their own equal importance, one is for bots and html sitemap is for humans. I think we should include both.

I would tell you that XML sitemap used to search engine and HTML used to user. xml-sitemaps.com best tool to create a sitemap. it provides four file HTML, XML, ror, txt has also known urllist.txt. all sitemap should be on a root.

XML sitemap are for search engines and HTML sitemaps are mostly made for users.

The sitemap for search engines does not have to be XML Format either. It can be as simple as a list of URLs.

Both sitemaps have their own purpose. XML serves for search engine while HTML makes navigation easy for users.
