    XML sitemaps are usually generated with search engines in mind. HTML sitemaps are usually viewed by actual humans (although you can also use HTML sitemaps to actually pass link juice around your site)

    HTML sitemap is a list of all hyperlinks of different sections and pages of website. These hyperlinks are normally listed hierarchically and they may provide description for each link. It is created for humans.

    XML sitemap is a list of all URLs of website in a special format.It allows webmasters to inform search engines about URLs in website for easy indexing.So it is created for search engines not for humans.

    HTML sitemap is used to list all hyperlinks or the link of all pages of website into a single page. These hyperlinks are normally listed hierarchically and they may provide description for each link. To adding HTML sitemap to your website will help your visitors navigate and find information easily. So HTML sitemap is mainly created for humans. Although a HTML sitemap is created for your visitors, indexing bot such as Googlebot might have a better chance to crawl your first-time-missed links again since all the files are well put together in your sitemap page.

    XML site map is mainly for search engine crawler not for visitor. It allows webmasters to inform search engines about URLs in your website for easy indexing. Submitting a XML sitemap to search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN will not only help your website being indexing rapidly and proficiently but also increase your website’s visibilities in search engines as well.

    An HTML sitemap allows site visitors to easily navigate a website.This sitemap is created for users

    This Sitemap can also be created in XML format and submitted to search engines so they can crawl the website in a more effective manner.And this sitemap is created only for Search Engine.

    There is no difference between HTML and XML sitemaps. XML sitemaps is for the search engines while the HTML sitemaps can be easily readable by the humans.

    XML is specially designed for search engine especially for google, you can use it inform search engine that you have added some new content or have made some changes to your site. While HTML is mainly designed for users to let users have a comrehensive understanding of your site. I hope what I explain here will be useful to you.
