How to Submit your Sitemap to Google.

Sitemap is a way of telling  Google about pages of your website that Google might not discover.

Submitting your sitemap to Google ensures faster indexing of your blog's web pages. Here's a step by step description of submitting sitemap to Google.

▌ Creating a sitemap. 


There are various third party websites that will create sitemap for you. Google them. You may use http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/ to create sitemap for your blog.

There is a default sitemap associated with bloggers and WordPress blogs. If you are a new-bie and do not wanna go into complications of creating a sitemap, you can follow these steps to get your sitemap.

Lets say your blog is http://www.mbblogging.com
To get the sitemap, type in the address bar www.mbblogging.com/robots.txt

You can see the sitemap listed on the page. This is your sitemap.

▌ Submitting your sitemap to Google.


You can submit your sitemap to Google through Google Webmaster tool.

♦ Login to your webmaster account http://www.google.com/webmasters/ here. If you don't have one, create an account.

You need to have your blog verified before you can submit your sitemap.

♦ Choose the blog for which you want to submit the sitemap.

♦ In the left panel select Optimization > sitemaps. At the right most corner, you will see an option of Add/test Sitemap.



▌ For a new blogger.

Google crawls web from one links to another. So, if you have a new blog and there is not proper interlinking (which is most likely true for a new blogger), then submitting your sitemap is a good step, since you ask Google to index your pages individually.
