I was discussing with some SEO folks the concepts and tests behind Sitemaps.XML and Sitemaps.TXT.
What we want to ask is has anyone tested the effectiveness of Sitemap.TXT vs. Sitemap.XML in terms of indexing and ranking gains of XML?
I read some folks saying that TXT are better for Yahoo! and XML are better for Google. Is anyone seeing this?
