Create Sitemap for WordPress.com

Google sitemap wordpress.comHow to create a sitemap for WordPress.com and submit it to Google Webmaster Tools.

Creating a sitemap for a self-hosted wordpress blog is easy. All you need is installing Google XML Sitemap Plugins. Activate it. And you’re done. But how to make a sitemap for a wordpress.com blog? Can we do it? The answer is yes. You can create a wordpress.com’s sitemap. Here’s how:

If you don’t have CATEGORIES included in your sidebar, go to your Sidebar Widgets editor and include it.
Open a page of your blog up so that you can see the CATEGORIES sidebar with all the categories listed.
Carefully highlight all of the categories in the CATEGORIES box and copy them to the clipboard.
Press CTRL-C for PC.
Press CMD-C for Mac.
Open the Manage Pages part of your Dashboard and create a new page.
Paste the contents of the clipboard into the editor.
Press CTRL-V for PC.
Press CMD-V for Mac.
Edit the list as you see fit.
Remove extraneous categories like “Uncategorized.”
Create a “Recommended” or “Most Popular” list of categories above or in place of the alphabetized list.
Add static, descriptive text before or after the list.
Bold certain categories to make them stand out.
Name the page and save it.
If you don’t want to have a separate sidebar listing of categories, go back and remove the CATEGORIES Sidebar Widget.

Don’t forget that pages created in this way are NOT self-updating like the CATEGORIES widget in the sidebar. You’ll have to redo the entire process every time you add a new category to any post, or you’ll have to learn how to edit the page yourself to add the category and the link.

How to submit a WordPress.com’s sitemap:

After login to your Google Webmaster Tools -> Add Your Site at ADD SITE.
Click the ubmitted website / blog-> click Submit Sitemap.
Enter this code -> sitemap.xml -> Submit Sitemap. Done.


Creating Sitemap for Blogger Blogspot

Creating sitemap for self-hosted WordPress is easy. You just need to install Google Sitemap Plugins which you can download for free.

Make no mistake, creating a sitemap for blogger.com / blogspot is even easier if you only know how. Basically creating sitemap need two steps: (i) Verification, to verify that you own the blog and (ii) Submitting Sitemap, to tell the search engine about your blog and every articles you have written. In return, Google search will tell the world about them (your blog and the contents) after the two procedures are done.

Now, follow these simple steps if you run a blog in blogger.com / blogspot:

First step: Verification

Login to your blogger.com account.
Scroll-down and find out “Webmaster Tools” -> click it. If you coudn’t find it, click here (remeber to click this link after login to your account).
Now, you have verified your blog. Congrats!

Second step: Submit the sitemap

You now have entered into Webmaster tools area. Find your blog URL there and click it. Example, I clcik -> mysite.blogspot.com
In the Dashboard click “Site Configuration -> Sitemaps -> click “Submit a Sitemap”
There will be your blog address like http://mysite.blogspot.com/–blankboxhere–
Copy and paste this code in the blankbox -> atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100
Click “Submit Sitemaps”. Done.

Congratulations! Now you have told Google search about the first 100 posts of your blog contents.

Important: If you have more than 100 articles, say 200, repeat the second step and submit another Sitemap by changing the number into 101 and 200 like this one: atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=101&max-results=200

Likewise, if you have 300 articles in your blog, you have to submit three sitemaps. The third sitemaps should be like this: atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=201&max-results=300

Repeat the process and submit more sitemaps if you have hundreds of articles or even thousands of postings.

Wish you luck!
