how to generate site-map for a blogspot blog; two different ways

How to create and submit sitemap for a blogger/blogspot blog

If you must have a successful blog then you must keep search
engine in mind or you’ll have to continue with another way of gaining traffick
for your blog and you know what that means; stress, you will be fully involved
each and every hour in order to maintain a steady traffick for your blog. But
this is not the case when you have a sitemap created for your blog because
you’ll be smiling to search engines. In this article, I’ll be showing you how
to easily create site map that keeps search engine robots on your blog pages
always.
To create a site map follow the following steps:
·        
Go to http://ctrlq.org/blogger/
·        
type the full address of your blogspot blog (or
your self-hosted Blogger blog).
·        
Click the Create Sitemap button and this tool
will instantly generate the necessary text for your sitemap as see in the
screen shot below.

·        
Copy the entire generated text to your clipboard
·        
Next go to your Blogger dashboard and under
Settings – > Search Preferences, the enable Custom robots.txt option
(available in the Crawling and Indexing section). Paste the clipboard text here
and save your changes.

You can also generate your blog’s site-map by writing url

This is also simple and more
effective too, though complex; but better for advanced blogs. The sitemap is
already generated by default you’ll just need to specify the proper url. And
here is how it will look:
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
NOTE: This one
will only show max 500 posts (most recent) in your blog. So if your blog is
quite bigger and has more than that you’ll need to create multiple sitemaps.
It’s fine to use multiple sitemaps for a single blog. If you have between 1000
posts, you’ll need two sitemaps as below:
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=501&max-results=500
that is the first line will generate
500 posts and the second line will generate for another 500 posts.
If you have about 2000 posts for
example, then you’ll have to add more and it should look like the one below:
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=501&max-results=500
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1001&max-results=500
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1501&max-results=500
If you have more then you can change
the start-index value to your desire but make sure you are increasing it by 500 and leave max-results=500
same for all.
hope it worked for you, do you have
a more effective way of generating blogger sitemap? Please leave a comment and
