  • HTML sitemap (written in Hypertext Markup Language) HTML sitemap, as stated above, is a map that contains information about website resources and their location. These sitemaps are primarily for users to assist them to find their desired item on website or to explore a website easily.
  • XML sitemap (written in Extensible Markup Language) XML sitemap is specially designed for the search engines to crawl your site while HTML sitemap is map of your site displayed in a user friendly format. It is designed for humans as they can clearly see it on the website as an extra web page and all the visitors of the website can make use of it for understanding the website.
