This question is asked a lot but the correct answer should be both. The XML site map feeds Google spider so it can see what pages you have on your website, including all the internal pages. XML sitemaps also connect your web pages more efficiently. For instance, if you have a lot of posts or pages and they are not necessarily all linked to from the homepage, you really need a place where Google can find out what you have on the site.

You need the HTML sitemap, as well.

I'm confused about sitemap.xml or sitemap.html, please suggest me which is better?

Both sitemap XML and HTML sites are important for a website. XML is for bots, whereas HTML is for visitors. HTML sitemap helps to understand the navigation of the website, whereas XML sitemap helps spiders to read and crawl all pages of the website including internal pages.
