A blogger sitemap is, in simple words, a map marked with the addresses of every page on your blog to lead search engine crawlers as well as visitors to where they are looking for. By placing all the URLs in one place, visitors can quickly find the specific contents they want to read, and search engine crawlers can easily index all the pages listed on it.
With a blogger sitemap, it would be easier to increase the visibility of your blog in search engine results and improve the visitor's navigation experience. As a result, you will attract more visitors to your blog and further on, to develop their attachments to visit regularly.
Since sitemaps are very important to blogs, especially for the ones that contain a large amount of contents or are updated frequently, learning how to create a sitemap would be very beneficial.
Most blog hosts provide plug-ins or tools to generate default sitemap files for bloggers. However, those convenient plug-ins or tools are not so reliable as they seem to be. For example, the Blogger users may be surprised to know that the default sitemap files contain only the last 26 pages of their blogs, so that the chances for visitors and search engine crawlers to find the older pages almost diminish to zero.
Any solution? Yeah, you can manually edit a complete blogger sitemap on your own, but it might be suffering to add all URLs of your blog pages to the sitemap one by one and submit it to Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. Moreover, every time you post a new entry, you should restart the sitemap editing and resubmit the updated sitemap to search engines.
Shortcut? Uh, there is a shortcut. You can ask the best & free sitemap tool—Sitemap X for help.
