How to add XML Sitemap to Blogger

19 Oct

There are multiple services that allows you to create the XML file from URL, but Blogger has some limitations uploading that file to the domain. I’m promoting a Blogger blog really hard these days, and the XML Sitemap it’s a must! My method works for normal blogger blogs, and for custom domains (like the one I’m using right now).

So, here are the steps you need to follow in order to add XML Sitemap to Blogger:

  1. Use this Sitemap Generator to create the XML for your blog (it will generate a text in the upper part of the page)
  2. Go to your Blogger dashboard, navigate to Settings – > Search Preferences -> Custom Robots. Enable this option (you will see a new text field area)
  3. Paste the code you got in step 1 to the Custom Robots text field.
  4. Save the changes

You’re done. I hope it helps..

    One tip that may be use to your readers is to rememeber to submit your site map to the major search engines ( Google, Bing, Yahoo etc) on a weekly basis. This will ensure that your site is crawled regularly so that any new content is recognised.
