Submit Blogger Blog Sitemap To Google Webmasters

Today I am going to tell how to add blogger blog to Google. Everyone ask Why we must submit our blog to Google , Since Google automatically indexes our Blog. But by submitting our blog sitemap to Google we can make Google to index our Blog frequently. One more question everyone ask is

"Why should we submit our Blog sitemap to Search Engines ? "

Sitemaps allows a webmaster to inform search engines about URLs on a website that are available for crawling. A Sitemap is an XML file that lists the URLs for a site. It allows webmasters to include additional information about each URL: when it was last updated, how often it changes, and how important it is in relation to other URLs in the site. This allows search engines to crawl the site more intelligently.

So in this Post I am going to tell how to Submit our Blog url and Blog Sitemap to Google. Just follow these step by step instructions:


Step 1 : Submitting Blog url to Google.


To submit our Blog Url to Google visit this page(http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl). There you will find a form like this ,


 Submit Blogger/Blogspot blog to Google Sitemaps

Fill the form and click submit.

So we have successfully added our Blog to Google. but it's just not enough. We need to submit our Blog Sitemap to Google.

Step 2 : Now we need to add our Blogger Blog sitemap to Google Webmasters.

Why we need to submit our Blog to Google Webmasters ?

Google Webmaster provide us some useful tools which helps us to know lots of things about our site. I will explain only top 2 tools :

* Google Crawling info

- when Google Indexed our Blog.

- Broken or Invalid Urls which Google unable to crawl

* Top search queries


 Other Important Features of Google Webmasters


- with this tool we can find the top queries that drive traffic to your site and where your site is included in the top search results. This will let you learn how users are finding your site.

I hope with the small introduction you might have learned the importance of Google Webmaster. So let us see how to Add our Blog there.


We can do this in two methods. First I will tell how to do it manually

Login to Google Webmaster with your Google Account .

It will take you to Dashboard page. There you can see a box saying " Click here to add your site" . In that box type your full blog url with http:// and click add site.


You know With Draft Blogger we can automatically submit our blog to Google Webmasters




 Submit Blogger Blog to Google webmasters through Darft Blogger


So draft blogger will automatically add our blog url to Google Webmasters.

step 3 :

After adding your site url , navigate to dashboard again. One the right side of your site , you will find two links ( ADD and Verify ).

Now click " Verify " , it will take you to new page saying


 Copy and paste the meta tag in your blogger template

In this select " Add Meta Tag " and copy and paste the code in your Blogger template. Then save your Blogger template and click verify.

step 4 : Adding Blog Sitemap to Google Webmasters

Now navigate to Dashboard again , there click add sitemap link . It will take you to a new page , There click " Add a sitemap" . Then select " Add General Web Sitemap" . and do as instructed.




that's it. So we have successfully added our Blog sitemaps to Google.

Now we can see indexed stats of our Blog sitemap .


After submitting the sitemap , you will see indexed stats like these


 This is How the indexed stats of our sitemap will shown



If you have any trouble let me know , I will try my best to help you guys.

Hi Mohamad,
Very useful article.
I have 2 problems and appreciate if you coild help me:
1- All my labels could not be indexed because robot.txt has prevented.
2- among 5 feeds(including comments feed) only 2 were accepted as sitemap.
atom.xml feeds/posts/default and feeds/posts/default/?alt=rss were not.
I am wondering what is the problem.
Best regards

Hi Mohamad,
I did not know that Google will not index our labels. It is funny to consider the fact that I have included so many blogger labels in Blogger Resources CSE. A few of your labels too. pleaee check this address:

Nice article. However, I would like to know that how can we (Blogger)create and submit site map instead of using RSS feed. RSS feed is OK, but have limitations, only allows new contents for indexing.

Nice article. I tested this for my blog but it shows error message. After many test and search I found a best method which is as follows (assuming that you are using Feedburner feed on your blog): http://xxx.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false - where xxx is your blog url.

Thanks for the advice but here I must tell you all one interesting thing to do to make your site listed in G faster than adding url.

Tips: Do not add your url to google in spite of that try to collect some back link from high PR site. See the result. Your site may be listed within minutes. Don't you believe me. One of my site was listed in search engine within 49 minutes of the creation.

Hi Mohamed,

Thanks for posting. I have one question, doesn't all the feeds you posted have the same content so you really only have to submit one of them as a sitemap?

Salam Rias,

bro thks a lot for sharing such a wonderful information. I had added just rss.xml as my sitemap but I didn't know that we could add three more.
Rias The only problem which I guess is major is that googgle analytics is howing me that I have submitted just one link! whereas I can see in the image that it is showing 26 for yours. Kindly guide me how can I sort out the problem. I have wriiten more than 36 posts , how come I have just one link submitted?

MOHD___
