Do you have both HTML and XML sitemaps?
Do you think a websites needs 2 sitemaps? Apparently, an XML sitemap is only for search engines, to make everything easier to crawl and therefore index.
I have no problems with creating and submitting an XML sitemap, though for websites that are coded in asp.net I had to use SiteMap.aspx and not XML.
Anyway, what do you think about HTML sitemaps? Should such sitemaps be also submitted in Search Console together with the XML?
I remember back in the old days of the internet most websites indeed had a HTML sitemap, but that was for the users, not search engines.
Are HTML sitemaps mandatory for modern websites? Is it a "best practice" type of situation? What do you think?
