Are internal links to pages more valuable than sitemap.xml links

by user3621898   Last Updated December 25, 2017 20:04 PM

So part of my site is asynchronously loaded with javascript. This part contains links to products. All these links also exist in my sitemap.xml.

I've tested with Googlebot Fetch and it doesnt see these links, probably because of the asynchronous javascript that fetches them from an api.

So my question is, does googlebot treat internal links differently from sitemap.xml links?

If a product exists both as an internal link on my page and in sitemap.xml is it more valuable than if it just existed in my sitemap.xml ?
