Sitemaps are list of pages of a web site or blog which is accessible to crawlers or users to enhance better rankings and indexing of your posts. But blogger default sitemaps displays a maximum of the most recent 26 links.  Imagine having a blog with over 200 articles on blogger, it there means google-bots won’t be able to get the whole links on your sitemap.

Here is how to generate a complete sitemap for blogspot blogger blogs

  • Login to your blogger dashboard, got to Settings > Search Preferences.
  • Now scroll to Crawlers and indexing, and click on Edit next to Custom robots.txt
  • Two radio button would appear with Yes and No, click on Yes for a form to appear.
    Now copy the below code into the box and Save.


    # Blogger Sitemap generated by oscarmini.com
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /search
    Allow: /
    Sitemap: http://yoursite.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500

  • Remember to replace yoursite.blogspot.com with your original blogger blog url. If you are making use of a custom domain, you can also replace with the custom url

This would help Google-bot to access your sitemaps with max of 500 links of your post instead of 26.
I hope this helped.
