Generate ROBOTS.TXT for your Blogger Website


Generate XML Sitemap for your Blogger Blog

This information applies to both regular Blogger blogs (with a blogspot.com address) and self-hosted Blogger blogs using a custom domain (like postsecret.com).

To ensure that search engines can access your blog's complete site structure, follow these steps to create an XML sitemap. Once created, search engines will automatically discover your XML sitemap files through the robots.txt file, eliminating the need for manual pinging.

The XML sitemap generator internally tallies all available blog posts within your Blogger blog. It then divides them into batches of 500 posts each and generates multiple XML feeds for each batch. Consequently, search engines will have visibility over every individual post on your blog as they are incorporated within these XML sitemaps.
  1. Open the Sitemap Generator and type the full address of your Blogger blog.
  2. Click the Generate Sitemap button and this tool will instantly create the XML file with your sitemap. Copy the entire text to your clipboard.
  3. Next, go to your Blogger.com dashboard, navigate to Settings –> Search Preferences, and enable the Custom robots.txt option (available in the Crawling and Indexing section). Paste the XML sitemap here and save your changes.



Note: If you have transitioned from Blogger to WordPress, it is still advisable to submit XML sitemaps of your old Blogspot blog. This will assist search engines in discovering your new WordPress blog posts and pages.
