How to add Google Sitemap for Blogger blog

How to add your blogger blog sitemap to your Google Webmaster tools ? - my blog readers often ask me this question. Unfortunately, Blogger blogs don't have real sitemap and you can't create it. But do you know that your RSS or Atom feed are some kind of sitemap?

'Why do I need to add sitemap to Google?' - Well, the short answer is : it will help Google to crawl your blog pages better and faster.

You can add your RSS feed to Google Webmaster Tools and Google will use it like sitemap of your blog.

How to add sitemap (RSS) to Google Webmaster Tools

1. Go to your Webmaster Tools

2. Your blog mast be added to Google webmaster tools, if not - read How to add Blogger blog to Google

3. Welcome back! ok, now choose your blog in webmaster tools dashboard (click on the link)

4. Go to 'Sitemaps' , and click 'Add a Sitemap'. Choose type: 'Add General Web Sitemap' and in the field put 'rss.xml' (ggg) . Click 'Add General Web Sitemap'.

I just did it. Very easy. I was pulling my hair out reading Google's directions. Why can't they just explain it like you did instead of making it sound so complicated?

I could not understand what is the reason that why Google blog (Blogger) site map cannot be generated? or how RSS feed site map can be submitted. so its better to make blog on wordpress then when its sitemap cannot be generated.
