First, go to Google Webmaster and sign in with your Google Account.

google webmaster site

Then, if you have not added your blog, click on "Add a site..." first.

google webmaster add a site

After adding your website, you'll need to verify the site ownership by added a meta tag on your blog. Follow the instructions displayed.

Then, proceed to the dashboard of the site.

google webmaster dashboard sitemap

On the left sidebar, expand "Site configuration" and click on "Sitemaps" below it.

Then the next page is where you submit the sitemaps for the blog.

google webmaster submit sitemap

Click on "Submit a Sitemap" and enter the following link extension:

1) This is the basic sitemap you submit first.

/atom.xml?redirect=false

2) Then enter the second sitemap. This is to index the first 100 posts on your blog, which means post number 1 until post number 100.

/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100

3) If you have more than 100 posts on your blog, submit this link as well. This will index post number 101 until post number 200.

/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=101&max-results=100

4) If you have more than 200 posts on your blog, submit this link as well. It will index post 201 until 300.

/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=201&max-results=100

5) Continue adding new sitemaps if you have more posts.

Take note that the more posts you have on your blog, you have to add more sitemaps to index every hundredth posts. Refer to the number in orange and it's pretty self-explanatory.

After submitting the sitemaps, your sitemap list will look more or less like this:

google webmaster sitemap list

The sitemap links above can accommodate 200 plus blog posts only. If the number of posts exceeds, more sitemaps have to be added for every hundredth.


Why is this "Sitemap submission" necessary?

It helps Google index your blog more efficiently and ultimately provide more traffic to your site via its search engine.

Go ahead and add your blog's sitemap to Google Webmaster now!

Hello,

This was easy...I think I did it right as I received all the check mark status on the Webmasters Tools site. Thanks!!

Bloggerafif said...

why must have submit one more sitemap? please, give me a reason, thanks

Simple Blogger Tips said...

@Bloggerafif:
Each index represents each post. So after 100 posts, the index must be added to accommodate more posts.

Techno Shouter said...

Thank you for your wonderful post..

my question is:

what if i add another 10 posts to my blog and then if i wish to submit the sitemap, in that case how to do it?

and after how many post i should submit a sitemap or should i submit it daily or weekly...

Simple Blogger Tips said...

@Techno Shouter:
You may submit each sitemap after every 100th post. You can also submit them earlier if you want to, but they won't contain any links if there are no respective posts to be linked to.

Himal Rangana said...

Nice Post.Thanks

@Sagar
Are you using "feedburner" services?

If yes add following as your feed url
"feeds/posts/default?redirect=false"
or
"/atom.xml?redirect=false"

Thanks

Chris said...

Thanks a bunch, this helped me out a lot. Is there ever a reason anyone would put a sitemap in their html?

Aazib said...

Thank you for this useful post. I was wondering how to index my all posts using sitemaps. I applied these sitemaps to my blog. I hope it will index my posts to google.

Peter said...

simple blogger, I never leave usually leave posts, but you, sir, are the mother f*king man. It took me 2 hours of searching about sitemaps, doing inane shit like downloading's microsoft's entire developer kit, looking at multiple sitemap websites, reading about SEO I didn't care about, and here, your blog post literally solved my problem in 1 minute. I'm going to upvote you as hard as I can.
