What is a Sitemap?

As the word sounds, a sitemap is actually a map of your website. When Google crawlers go around the web indexing new web pages in its database, new blogs are usually missed out as only a few or no sites are linking to them as well as they’re not aware of sitemap thing. A sitemap is either an XML or HTML file that contains all the URLs of the pages inside your blog. While HTML sitemap helps your visitors to navigate through your blog, an XML sitemap helps the search engine crawlers the same way. When you submit an XML sitemap to Google Webmasters, it helps search engine crawlers to find all the URLs on your website and add it to their database. There are various parts of a sitemap that affect the crawling rate of your blog, such as the size of your sitemap, the number of URLs in your sitemap, indexing priority of pages on your blog, updating frequency, etc. Now, that you know about sitemap and its importance, let’s move on to the further steps.

Create Blogger Sitemap To Google Webmaster Tools 2020

STEP 1 – THE NEW BLOGGER SITEMAP Updated 2020

Google now automatically create a sitemap for your Blogger blog in your root directory. This makes the process a whole lot easier, all you have to do now is submit your sitemap to Google and Bing Webmaster Tools. The sitemap is available at the following URLs.

Blogger – Default URL: http://blogname.blogspot.com/sitemap.xml

or


Blogger – Custom URL: http://www.blogname.com/sitemap.xml

This new default sitemap is automatically added to the default robots.txt file, so you don’t have to create a custom one. making the process a lot easier. The sitemap file also

contains links to pages: http://blogname.blogspot.com/sitemap.xml?page=1

OLD Version Blogger XML Sitemap URL

Creating a site map on Blogger isn’t as easy as on other platforms. They don’t have proper XML sitemap available and so we have to generate one using the RSS or Atom feed and add it ourselves. To do so we use a structure like the links below and add it to a custom robots.txt file.

We do so by using the following link and then creating a custom robots.txt file.

Blogger – Default URL

http://blogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=UPDATED

Blogger – Custom Domain on Blogger URL

http://blogname.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500http://blogname.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=UPDATED
A single sitemap file should not exceed 50MB which is why we limit it to max results 500. You may need to edit this depending on how big your feed is. Now we’ve to tell search engines that this is your sitemap. To do this, we add it to your robots.txt file and submit it to Google and Bing Webmaster Tools.


Add Blogger Sitemap to robots.txt file

Go to Blogger > Dashboard > Settings > Search Preferences and click edit the custom robots.txt file. Click enable and paste the following adding your blog name.

You can change the sitemap URL to whichever link above you prefer. The above code means that search engines can index your entire site (Allow: /) apart from your blogs search results (Disallow: /search) which is good because that would be considered duplicate pages.
