XML vs. HTML SiteMap : You Are Using The Wrong One For SEO on Google – SEO Conspiracy S01E30

Since Google came out with the Search Console and advised to upload an XML SiteMap file, nobody cares about old school HTML SiteMap.

We got news for you, if you believed XML SiteMap has any kind of value for SEO.
It might help you control website health in the Search Console, but won’t help you rank better in Google. Eventually, it might help new URLs get discovered, but it won’t guarantee their indexation.

Furthermore, we always knew how to index web pages, long before XML SiteMap appeared.

Then there is the forgotten HTML SiteMap.
The best solution is to adopt a smart internal linking strategy, like Dixon and I advise.
An HTML SiteMap can’t compare with the Topical Mesh, but it will have more power for SEO than the XML version.

Don’t believe the hype. Abandoning HTML SiteMap over XML is the wrong move.

As always, this is only my opinion.
Please don’t hesitate to share your point of view on the topics covered in this video.
