Matt Cutts on HTML Sitemaps

When Matt Cutts (Head of Google’s Webspam Team) was asked, what is more important: “A XML sitemap or an HTML sitemap?” YouTube Webmaster Tools Video Matt answered a HTML sitemap. HTML sitemaps help both users and search engine crawlers. “It is always useful to have a HTML sitemap…”.

Note: The WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin is NOT required in order to use this plugin. But this plugin does take full advantage of all settings related to the XML sitemap settings.

Known oversights:

  • Author Roles filtering, I do not have it setup to be able to filter out author roles.
  • The posts are sorted by name and may not show if a specific Category is selected to not show in the sitemap XML settings in Yoast.
