A XML sitemap is a structured format a user doesn't have to see, however it tells the SE concerning the pages in your site, their relative importance to one another, and how usually they're updated. HTML sitemaps are designed for the consumer to help them find material to the page, and do not have to include each and every sub-page.

I suggested Sitemap.xml is the best supported for Google webmaster tools.

Traditional site maps are static HTML files that outline the first and second level structure of a Web site. The original purpose of a site map was to enable users to easily find items on the Web site. Over time, they also became useful as a shortcut method to help search engines find and index all the parts of a site.

Today, you should have an XML site map, which effectively provides an easy-to-read link dump for the spiders to index. Although certain Web browsers can display an XML site map for users to read as well, you should offer both kinds of site maps (HTML and XML) if you want to be sure to cover both the search engines and your users.

For me Xml sitemap is best because It permits us to include additional details about every URL or web page in your website, such as when the web page was last up to date, how often the page adjustments, and the way essential the web page is in relation to different pages on your website.

You're right to ask for clarification; you both are right in fact! :)

XML sitemap is for robot and not for human; it is the one you need to create for searches engines. It is made using a markup language automated programs understand.

HTML sitemap is made for human. It helps your visitor map your site to find their targeted pages. It is less useful for SEO. But it still helps as its do follow links will interest searches engines!

HTML sitemaps are Traditional sitemaps which outline the first and second level structure of a Web site. The main purpose of HTML sitemap was to enable users to easily find items on the Web site. XML sitemap includes information about one or more URLs on your Web site. XML sitemap mostly use by the search engines. Both Sitemap help search engines as well as to the users to find and index all the parts of a site. So both HTML & XML sitemaps are important.

Its XML buddy, because Google's crawler read only this page, and it is important that our page get crawled by Google.

Both sitemaps are good for SEO, but XML is more important because this sitemap added in website for spiders and HTML sitemap is for users or visitors.

According to me HTML sitemaps and XML are both useful to help search engine to crawl your site. XML site map is used for crawling your website links. So XML site map is always good for Seo then HTML.

In my opinion XML sitemap is best for SEO. It includes all the urls and pages that you want to crawl and index. And it is also a tree structure for your site that helps anyone to see all pages easily.The best thing in XML sitemap that it is also provide information when pages get updated and how important they are.

Of Course, XML Sitemap is important than HTML because XML Sitemap is for Search Engines whereas HTML Sitemap is for Users.

An HTML site map offers a useful directory of all of the pages which are in your site while XML site maps play an important part in aiding se's crawl the different pages of the site.

XML Sitemap would really be a good help especially when you are going to use Google and BIng Webmaster Tools, it is required to have an XML sitemap so that you can submit your site successfully, while on the other hand, you can use HTML Sitemap on your website, you can make a separate page for it, but it's optional.. :)
