    XML sitemap is for search engine to identify the total number of pages available for entire site. While HTML sitemap is for readers to easily navigate a site.

    It help Google to get the idea about what our site contains. How many pages and what amount of content does our site have.

    xml sitemap is used for easily crawling and indexing and it's for search engine and html sitemap is used for user's to easily move from one page to another page.

    XML Sitemap is basically for Google crawler so that he can navigate and index each page of our website easily.

    HTML sitemap is for users so that they can easily navigate your website pages easily.
