    HTML sitemaps appear as a webpage, and are human readable. XML sitemaps are machine readable, making a website more accessible to web robots, such as Googlebot.

    The simplest explanation is that XML is primarily forthe search engines while HTML is written for the users. 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.

    Thank you for asking to answer.


    HTML sitemaps are designed for humans to navigate the website.

    XML Sitemaps on the other hand are designed for search engines to know the site structure.

    Hope it helps !
