add XML sitemap to your blog on blogger

Adding XML sitemap to your blogger blog

There exist numerous ways to add a sitemap to your blogger blog. This is true, and in
this post I’m going to demonstrate to you more than 3 ways to do just that.

Submit sitemap for your blogger blog!!………….

For months I kept wondering how my blogger blog was not receiving any visits nor getting indexed despite having good keywords and good SEO.

Well, the problem I came to find out was the absence of XML sitemap. An XML sitemap
helps search engines discover pages on your site that may have otherwise been
missed by search bots. It acts like a registry of all web pages you have on
your website and search engines like Bing, Google and Yahoo use them to
discover your web pages during regular crawling.

You are going to generate a complete sitemap of your Blogger blog using an online
sitemap generator and submit the XML sitemap to Google via robots.txt in step
1. In step 2 you will use atom.xml while in step 3 we will tell search bots
through robots.txt where our XML sitemap is.

sitemap should contain a list of all pages on your website though this is not
the case with any blog hosted on blogger. Blogger restricts the number of blog
posts in the default XML sitemap to 26 most recent blog posts. That might not
be a big challenge because the older posts missing in the XML sitemap might
have already been cached yet a solution exists where you can generate a
complete sitemap.

a Complete Sitemap for your Blogger Blog

can do this for both regular Blogger blogs using a .blogspot.com url and also
the self-hosted Blogger blogs that use a custom domain like

what you need to do to expose your blog’s complete site structure to search
engines with the help of an XML sitemap.

  1. Go to Sitemap Generator and type the full url
    of your blogspot blog (or your self-hosted Blogger blog).
  2. Use
    the Create Sitemap button to create a complete sitemap for your blog. This
    tool should immediately generate the XML sitemap for you. Copy the entire
    generated text to you text editor
  3. Next
    go to blogger dashboard and under Settings – > Search
    , and then enable custom roboxt.txt option found in the
    Crawling and Indexing section and copy/ Paste the text you pasted
    into you text editor here and save changes.
