    A site map (with which you may well be familiar) is an HTML page containing an ordered list of all the pages on your site (or, for a large site, at least the most important pages). Sitemap can be XML, TXT or HTML usually XML and TXT is served for robots.

    The purpose of a site map is to spell out your website's central content themes and to show both search engine spiders and your visitors where to find information on your site.

    Traditional site maps are static HTML files that outline the first and second level structure of a website. The original purpose of a site map was to enable users to easily find items on the website. Over time, they also became useful as a shortcut method to help search engines find and index all the parts of a site.

    sitemap is classified as .htm and .xml

    first one is user friendly. it helps to users when they have problems to leave from the current page.
    second one is search engine friendly. the bot does not crawl all pages of a site when it is crawling. so it helps to inform about the relevancy of all pages.

    It is better to create sitemap's in different formats. While we can use html sitemap to show to our visitors, we can use xml sitemap to feed to google and other search engines requires sitemaps to be submitted in their own format
