How to add sitemap for my blogspot?

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by MyFlash13, Apr 10, 2008.

    I got a blog on Blogger....
    SEMrush
    But how do I make a Google sitemap? With Blogger, you can't create a new text file or anything. Nor can I use the RSS feed because thats past the index folder of the domain.

    Any ideas?

    For blogger one inbuilt function there called RSS Feed. You can submit RSS Feed of your blog instead of making sitemap.

    Sign in to your blogger account, go to edit html option where you can paste the meta tag and save it. Now, log into your webmaster tools account and submit the feed e.g. yourdomainame.blogspot.com/atom.xml as your sitemap. That's all. Every thing is done :)

    Logging in using your Gmail account, key in your blog site URL, and click OK. You will then be asked to verify your site. This is to ascertain that you are indeed the owner of the site.

    There are two ways to verify your site. You can either add a Meta Tag or Upload an HTML file. If you are using the Meta Tag method, Google will generate a Meta Tag code. Copy the META tag that is generated for you, and paste it in your site's home page in the first section of the page, before the first section. What you do is to go to your Blogger dashboard. Under Template ->Edit HTML, somewhere near the top of the script, add the Meta Tag as follows:-



    Replace the META TAG with the code generated by Google Webmaster. Once done, Save the Template. When you return to Google Webmaster site, you can click the button that says “Verify”.

    Note: The second method of uploading an HTML file is NOT applicable to Bloggers using Blogger.com or Blogspot.com because this requires you to upload a file to the root directory of your Blog, which is not possible. There is therefore only one method for you to verify your site, and that is by inserting the Meta Tag as explained above.

    After you have had your site verified, click on the Sitemaps tab as shown below. By adding a Sitemap, you will be providing Google with more details and information about your Blog. With this, Google will crawl your site, report information on any errors in the Sitemaps tab, and index your Blog site at a faster rate.

    Click the link that says “Add a Sitemap”. This will take you to another screen where you should choose the type “Add General Web Sitemap”. The Sitemap URL for any normal website is usually the index page that is stored in the highest-level directory of that site. In the case of Blogger.com or Blogspot.com, the only way to add a Sitemap is to use either of the following 2 Sitemaps:-

    http://YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/rss.xml


    OR

    http://YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/atom.xml


    Remember to replace YOURBLOGNAME with that of your Blog's. For Blogger blogs, do not add "www." to YOURBLOGNAME. Once you have added your Sitemaps, you will receive a confirmation telling you that reports are being generated but “may take several hours to update”. Congratulations! You have successfully added your Sitemaps. When you login to your Google Webmaster days later, you should be able to see the indexed pages and statistics of Google webcrawl of your Blog.

    Leave the meta tag in the template if you want to view the statistics of your site. If Google can't find the meta tag, it will show an error message in your webmaster toolbox and you may have to verify your site again.

    IMHO you don't really need a sitemap.xml for your Blogger since all of your pages will be linked together from the index page (and hence indexed in Google) due to the architecture of Blogger (please correct me if I am wrong). The only reason I can think of for wanting to add a sitemap would be to set the indexing priority - otherwise you are just making more work for yourself.

    Hi folks,
    At first i too scratched my head to find “HTTP error : 404 not found” whether i give atom.xml or rss.xml or others..
    Later i found in the dashboard where i add the site names
    both the below are added :
    justnareshbw.blogspot.com
    http://www.justnareshbw.blogspot.com

    and i added meta tag for http://www.justnareshwb.blogspot.com and trying to add sitemap to it.. I really dont know how both are automatically added to dashboard.
    So i added metatag for justnareshbw.blogspot.com and then tried to add sitemap by atom.xml and it was successful.

    So guys please check if ur doing it for a wrong URL as both URL (one with WWW and one without ) will be added to ur dashboard automatically.

    Also , when ur doing correctly box to be filled will come next to //XXXXXX.blogspot.com/
    and if ur doing wrongly (for WWW URL) then you get box to be filled in the next line of //www.XXXXXX.blogspot.com/

    Hope this helps.
