    Hi Friends,
    There are principally two types of sitemaps:
    • HTML sitemap (written in Hypertext Markup Language)
    • XML sitemap (written in Extensible Markup Language)
    XML Sitemaps can have two types.
    • Index Sitemap (how many URL sitemaps a website have)
    • URL Sitemap (contain final information of URLs on webpage)
    XML sitemaps are further divided into 3 different categories.
    • Sitemaps for webpages (commonly known as xml sitemap in community)
    • Image sitemaps (details of images and their URLs on website)
    • Video sitemaps (what webpages have videos embedded in them and their details)
    So, final tree of sitemaps categorization we have is;
    XML Sitemap Index Sitemap URL Sitemap Sitemaps for Webpages Sitemaps for Images Sitemaps for videos
    HTML Sitemaps

    An XML sitemap is a type of list marked up with XML so that search engines can easily consume information about the URLs that make up a site. For SEO, an XML sitemap is an invitation to crawl the URLs listed. It's a way of asking the search engines to crawl and index the pages listed.

    HTML- and XML-sitemaps are the two sitemap-types that are seen most often.

    As the web evolves, so too does Google and SEO.

    This means what is considered best practice is often in flux. What may have been good counsel yesterday, is not so today.

    This is especially true for sitemaps, which are almost as old as SEO itself.

    The problem is, when every man and their dog has posted answers in forums, published recommendations on blogs and amplified opinions with social media, it takes time to sort valuable advice from misinformation.

    So while most of us share a general understanding that submitting a sitemap to Google Search Console is important, you may not know the intricacies of how to implement them in a way that drives SEO key performance indicators (KPIs).

    Let’s clear up the confusion around best practices for sitemaps today.

    In this article we cover:

    What is an XML sitemap
    XML sitemap format
    Types of sitemaps
    XML sitemap indexation optimization
    XML sitemap best practice checklist
    What Is an XML Sitemap
    In simple terms, an XML sitemap is a list of your website’s URLs.

    It acts as a roadmap to tell search engines what content is available and how to reach it.
