    You can now add Google sitemap to your blogger.com account and increase your chances of being indexed in Google search engine result. You can add a Sitemap to your account to give Google more information about the pages in your site to help Google crawl them more effectively.

    Step # 1: Login to sitemap account

    At the top of screen you will see option to add site. Just paste URL of your blog (for example http://cyberciti.blogspot.com/)

    Click on Ok button. Next you will get confirmation message. Your site has been added to your account.

    Step # 2: Now you need to verify your ownership of blog to view detailed statistics. Click on verify link. Google offers two methods of verification. You can either upload an HTML file with a name we specify (which is not possible with Google Blogger account), or you can add a META tag to your site's index file. Adding META tag via template code is possible so just select Add a META tag from drop down menu:

    [​IMG]


    It will generate code for you, copy the meta tag and paste it into your blogger.com template section).

    Step # 3: Go to your blogger.com and login to your account. Goto your blog > Click on Template
    Paste the META tag code after section:

    Click on Save Template changes button

    Click on Republish Index only button > Wait for few seconds so that your blog being published successfully.

    Step # 4: Now goto sitemap account and click the box that read as follows:

    I've added the META tag in the home page of http://cyberciti.blogspot.com/. Click on Verify button.

    Step # 5: Now your site is added to sitemap account and verification is done. Next you need to add actual sitemap url. Since blogger.com account donĂ¢€™t allow you to create a text file or anything else you need to add your site feed (ATOM xml) file as a site map. Click on add a sitemap link:

    [​IMG]


    Step # 6: You can add a Sitemap to your account to provide Google additional information about about your blog. Google will process your Sitemap and provide information on any errors in the Sitemaps tab as well your sitemap will be downloaded everyday to index your blog fast.
    Select type as : Add General Web sitemap

    Now you need to add Atom 0.3 feeds. Generally, you would use this format only if your site already has a syndication feed and this is the only way to add sitemap to your blogger.com account.

    Paste url of your Atom feed: For example http://cyberciti.blogspot.com/atom.xml and click on Add Web sitemap:

    Update: If you are using a new blogger beta system, use http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/full as a feed url.

    [​IMG]


    You will get confirmation:
    You have added a Sitemap to http://cyberciti.blogspot.com/. Reports may take several hours to update. Thank you for your patience!

    And you are done and your blog will be now index very fast (depend upon your posting and content).

    Sorry The Step 6 is Outdated..

    Use this..

    6. Click the "Sitemap" link in the left side of your Google Webmaster Tolls Page
    7. Insert the link of your atom feed in the sitemap textbox and then click submit sitemap..


    hope that fix the problem...
