How to Create and Submit Your Blogger Sitemap to Google

It is very important to generate and submit blogger sitemap to Google, Yahoo and Bing. But here a question arises that what is a sitemap? A sitemap is a digital map of all your contents on a blog or website. It is important to create such a sitemap which can be easily understand by search engines.

If you have added your sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools then all your contents will be indexed by Google and they may appear in search results very frequently. There are various types of sitemaps like rss.xml sitemaps, atom.xml sitemaps, video sitemaps, etc. But here I will tell only atom.xml sitemap, because it is very easy to generate and submit. Follow the below steps to start.

1. To submit your sitemap to Google sign in to Google Webmaster Tools. I am assuming that you have verified your blog ownership.

2. Select your blog and on the left side click Site Configuration >> Sitemap and click the red button on the right side which says Add/Test Sitemap.

3. Copy/Paste the below sitemap in the box.

• atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500

Click submit and you've done. It will take time to index all your posts. Once it is verified you will see your submitted and indexed webpages in blue and red colors as seen in the above image.

Now a very important thing you should keep in mind. The above sitemap generated is only for 500 posts. After every 500 post you have to submit a new sitemap. See below examples.

• Sitemap for less than 500 posts.

• atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500

• Sitemap for more than 500 posts but less than 1000 posts.


• Sitemap for more than 1000 posts but less than 1500 posts.


From above example you can see that after every 500 post you have to submit a new sitemap in addition to old sitemaps so that all your post should get indexed by Google.
