Sitemap & robots.text creation for Blogger blog

A Sitemap is simply a list of your website's accessible pages. Sitemaps allow search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing to easily crawl pages on your website, resulting in a more accurate index. As a blogger, you must create a sitemap so that when you publish a new post, search engines can easily crawl and index it. In this post, we'll look at how to make a sitemap for a Blogger blog and submit it to Google Webmaster Tools and robots.txt.


What exactly is the Blogger Sitemaps tool?

The Blogger Sitemap tool will create an XML sitemap of your Blogger blog that includes all of your blog posts, not just the most recently published ones.


What is  robots.txt file means?

Here is a simple robots.txt file with two rules:

User-agent: Googlebot

Disallow: /nogooglebot/


User-agent: *

Allow: /


Sitemap: http://www.example.com/sitemap.xml


  • The user agent named Googlebot is not allowed to crawl any URL that starts with http://example.com/nogooglebot/.
  • All other user agents are allowed to crawl the entire site. This could have been omitted and the result would be the same; the default behavior is that user agents are allowed to crawl the entire site.
  • The site's sitemap file is located at http://www.example.com/sitemap.xml.
