How to Make a Sitemap on Blogger (Complete Guide)

It’s been a long time since I wrote an article about blogging, hehee.

On this occasion I want to share an article about Sitemaps on Blogger. Starting from how to create a sitemap on a blog, registering a sitemap with Google Webmaster to creating a sitemap page to make things easier for visitors.

Please read and follow the steps in the order I have created, so that you understand the function and purpose of creating a sitemap on this blog.

What is a Blogger Sitemap?

A sitemap is a collection of information in the form of a directory of blog site web pages. The contents of the Sitemap itself are in the form of URL lines or post links on your blog site.

XML sitemaps can help search engines find your blog post pages. Sitemaps created using this tool support all search engines, including Google and Bing.

The benefits of creating a sitemap for a blog are as follows:

  • Quickly in the Search Engine Index
  • By creating a sitemap, it allows all posts on your blog to be indexed by search bots.

  • Increase Visitors
  • If search engines crawl your blog site smoothly, it is likely that your posts will rank high in search results and will have more visitors.
