What is a Sitemap?
A sitemap is a total list of your post which is organized like a table. It is the directory of existing posts on your blog or website. A sitemap is used to help search engines like Google and Bing to crawl and index your website. A sitemap is very important for your website because whenever you create a fresh post it will crawl and index your site. Many Blogger users have trouble making a sitemap so that’s the reason I created this post so I may help you out about How to create and submit a Blogger Sitemap.
There is also a Blogger Default XML Sitemap but the reason we will not select that option is that the Default Blogger XML Sitemap only shows the recent blog posts. It only shows 26 of your posts in the sitemap. So that was the reason we will not go along with this option. We will try the new and best method so your Blogger Sitemap will work great and you can easily create a blogger sitemap.

Now let us come to the main point which is Blogger Sitemap. Simply add the below code into your Google Webmasters sitemap URL.
NOTE: Change the URL with your blog URL

If the sitemap file is single then it should not exceed then 50MB and that is the reason we have limited it to 500 max results.
