So many beginner wapmasters don’t know how to add blogger to Google search console and perfectly submit the blog sitemap. in this post, we learn how to submit a Blogspot sitemap to the google webmaster tool.
Google is currently the most used search engine in the internet world. More than 70% of the needs from the Internet are met by everyone through the Google search engine. For this reason, all the top-level web developers target the Google search engine.

- Now if you click on Sitemaps from Crawl in the image above, you will see your old sitemap like the image below.
- Delete the old sitemaps of your blog from the image above.
- Now submit the following XML sitemap in the previous rule.
- If you have more than 150 posts on your blog, submit the following two lines twice separately.
- The two feeds above will index a total of 300 posts. If your blog has more posts than that, resubmit another feed with 301 instead of 151. In this way, you have to change the number of posts in your blog and submit a new feed.
According to the latest update of Google Webmaster Tools, from now on, when submitting a sitemap, you do not have to specify the page number according to the old rules. This is because Google Webmaster Tools automatically generates 150 pages for site submissions. In this case, just by adding sitemap.xml, no matter how many posts you have on your blog, it will be indexed 150 times on each XML page.
- Delete your old sitemap as shown above.
- Then submit the sitemap of your blog as shown below.
- Finally, by clicking on the blue submit button, your blog will be submitted.
