    Hi
    I have both xml and html sitemap on my site,, i just wanted to include subcategory links also in the HTML sitemap.

    WhY I am thinking so?

    This will help search engine to crawl my inner pages faster
    Hyperlinking my subcategory pages in the HTML with keyword relevant to that page will add weight to the page

    I am not convinced with my this thought process and confused shall i go ahead with this and will it actually be useful. Need advice.

    HTML Sitemap is for your user only and so you can do whatever you think would be good for your user but XML Sitemap is submitted to Google and so you need to follow the format.
