What Is A Site map ?

"Site maps can improve search engine optimization of a site by making sure that all the pages can be found. This is especially important if a site uses a dynamic access to content such as Adobe Flash or JavaScript menus that do not include HTML links.

They also act as a navigation aid by providing an overview of a site's content at a single glance.

Most search engines will only follow a finite number of links from a page, so if the number of links is very large, the site map may be required so that search engines and visitors can access all content on the site"
(source :Wikipedia)

We have 3 sections to complete this tip




  • Getting your sitemap address












  • Submitting your blog to Google webmaster tools












  • Submitting your Sitemap to Google webmaster tools







  • So lets see how its done :

    Sitemap 1.
    I will show you how this is done for future reference.






  • Getting the sitemap address







  • Step 1.
    Go to your blog and look at your blogs address in the browser at the top of the page it will be :
    http://www.YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/
    or if you have a custom domain :
    http://www.YOURBLOGNAME.com/
    Mine is http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/

    Step 2.
    Add the following to the end of your blogs URL :
    robots.txt
    So now you have :
    http://www.YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/robots.txt
    http://www.YOURBLOGNAME.com/robots.txt
    Mine is http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/robots.txt
    Click enter or go to go to the address

    Step 3.
    Now once you go to this page it will look like this :

    User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
    Disallow:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /search

    Sitemap: http://www.YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=updated


    Mine looks like this :

    User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
    Disallow:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /search

    Sitemap: http://www.annoitedtouch.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=updated

    Above as i have highlighted in red is your site map address - that's it as far as getting the site map.
    Keep this you will need it later.

    Sitemap 2.
    I will just give you the default 'atom 500' address :

    • atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500

    Now you can Submit your sitemap to Google.





  • Submitting your blog to Google webmaster tools





  • Step 1.

    Webmaster tools is a Great source of information to see exactly how Google sees your blog but that's another days work..

    Step 2.
    On the homepage if you have not already submitted your site to webmaster tools click 'Submit A Site' .
    You can submit your blog URL.Note: just submit your URL here http://YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com we enter the site map address later.

    You will have to verify that you own the blog this is straight forward follow the steps provided by Google.


    Once you are verified as the owner of the blog we can carry on.
