Hi,
XML site map is always good for SEO because.search engine read only XML sitemap to crawl internal links of your website.HTML site map use only for visitor to find specific page or link in website.you should apply both format of sitemap XML for search engine and HTML for user but XML is most important then HTML.

Hi,
Google XML site map for your favorite search engines.

Although the format is referred to as Google Site Map format, the other major search engines (Yahoo, MSN, Ask.com) have agreed with Google on this format, so they will all be able to use the same site map.

Get the Google XML Sitemap Plugin, which auto-generates a site map in Google Site Map format. This plugin also updates the site map every time you make a blog post.

You absolutely do NOT want to be updating a site map by hand every time you post. Unless of course you would find that therapeutic. :)

Html and XML both sitemap are important for a website as it navigate crawlers and users. However, if you want to know relative to seo then XML sitemap is best.

A site map displays the inner framework and organization of your site's content to the search engines
From user point of view HTML sitemap is better but from search engine point of view
XML site map is good. for SEO, which effectively provides an easy-to-read link dump for the spiders to index.Provides a pathway for the search engine robots to follow.

I agree with you, xml sitemap is important for website and it helps Google crawl your site easily but I've read in a SEO book that you needn't a sitemap it will be better for your website if Google itself must find links through system link on your site to crawl and making list of indexed pages :D

Will not hurt to have both types of sitemaps and you will be submitting your XML map to google and bing.

I prefer HTML sitemap Because I gives my readers good facilities. HTML Sitemap is used by people find to content on your site. You should have one to help people find what they are looking for. This can also be crawled by the search engines. In other side XML Sitemap is designed for robots from the SEs. People do not use this to find the content that they are looking for.
