    HTML sitemaps = spreads link juice to your pages + helps human navigate. XML sitemaps = helps search engines find and index more content

    By all means. Use both XML and HTML. It also helps to have links at the bottom of all web pages to the HTML sitemap. Have tested all combinations for the last two tears, and search engine rankings always are better with both and links to HTML.

    Both XML and HTML sitemaps should be used. XML sitemap helps the search engine spiders to crawl easily all the inner pages of a site. When a user access a site, for easier navigation, HTML sitemaps are of great help.

    XML sitemap is the best, Google itself suggesting XML sitemap then why we have to take risk. Just go head with XML sitemap.

    I always use xml for my sitemap. To make sitemap, i use sitemap generator. You can search it on Google.
