    Submitting your sitemap to google will enable google to find,index,rank your site more quickly.

    1.Go to google webmaster tools and create a new webmaster profile.

    2.After logging on you will be asked to add a site.There add your blog url.
    That's www.your-blog-name.blogspot.com and submit.

    3.Next step is to verify that you are the owner of the blog.
    There are two methods to do it.
    1.By adding Meta Tag
    2.By uploading a HTMl File
    Bloggers should proceed with the first method that's by adding Meta Tag.

    4.Copy the meta tag provided by google.Now go to you blogger account and click on layout tab there.Now in layout click on Edit Html tab.And then paste the code as shown below.
    And then save the changes and click on verify link on google webmaster site after adding the Meta Tag.A confirmation page will appear.

    5.After your site has been verified click on the link that says sumit a sitemap as shown below.
    Another page appears there again click on sumit a sitemap tab and enter the url.

    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://your-blog-name.blogspot.com/rss.xml

    or

    http://your-blog-name.blogspot.com/atom.xml


    Now you site map has been added and it may take hours to generate the report on your site.

    You can also add it to your robots.txt file. That way all the major search engines will be able to locate your sitemap.xml file. At the end of your robots.txt file just add:
    Sitemap: http://yourdoamin.com/sitemap.xml
    Code (markup):

    The robots.txt method also works when your sitemap is hosted on another domain. If your site-builder service does not allow you to upload sitemaps, but you can edit your robots.txt... you can have another website host your sitemap for you.

    Click the link in my signature for a sitemap service that does this for you.

    setting up a google webmasters tool account is really useful too in keeping track of your sitemaps.

    It's easy. Get the wordpress plugin called "Simple Sitemap XML Generator" or something.

    If you use sitemap plugin generator in wordpress, please check your robots.txt, Disallow / change Allow / if disallow your sitemap can't indexed by google.

    Sitemap is a webpage of your website which contains all the site links categorized under different categories and headings. Sitemap can be a great tool for making search engines crawl throughout your site so that all your web pages get indexed and you get more visitors. Also, if you build a good sitemap it can become a great navigational tool for visitors to easily access the information they are looking for.

    It is possible to automatically submit sitemaps by 'pinging' the url.

    The application thesitemapper at http://www.thesitemapper.com is designed to automatically ping the search engines after it has created the site map.
