Add Your Blog Sitemap to Google Webmaster

This video tutorial describes how you can add your blog to Google Webmaster Tools using an XML sitemap.

Add Your Blogspot Blog Sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools

Step 1. Open the Google Webmaster Tools website at and click "Add a Site" button to submit your Blogger blogger.

You can either type the web address (URL) of your blog or even a self-hosted blog where you are using the Blogger platform with your personal domain.

Step 2. Google will ask you to verify that you are the owner of this blog. Just copy-paste the meta code to the clipboard and then paste* this information into the template of your Blogspot blog.

*You should switch to the "HTML" version of your blog template and paste the code just below the tag.

Step 3. Go back to Google Webmaster Tools and select "Sitemaps" from the right sidebar. Now click the "Submit a Sitemap" button.

Step 4. Type atom.xml?redirect=false and submit. Once the clock status icon changes to a green tick, your Blogger sitemap has been successfully submitted to Google for indexing.

* If you are using FeedBurner for your Blogger RSS Feeds, the redirect=false parameter will force Google to download your Blogger feed and not the FeedBurner feed.
