Are you having problems with submitting your blogger blog site map to search engine's webmaster tools? You have submitted the correct site map, but your webmaster tools saying that only 26 urls are submitted? I was also having the same problem around for several days. But, at last I found the solution. Let me explain this a little to you.
blogger have various type of sitemaps, like
The last one is from your robots.txt (path:http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/robots.txt). And if you don't use webmaster tools to submit the sitemap, all search engines will discover your site map through this robots.txt and will get the last one. So, if you are not using the webmaster tools, simply have a look to your sitemap(paste the url to browser changing your blogname and enter), check how many posts are there on the feed?
Surprised?? Yes, there are only 26 post showing over there. Even if you were submitting this to webmaster tools, same will be happen, only 26 urls will be submitted(where you may have several hundreds posts). Try checking other feeds, same will happen. So, what to do now?
Relax! We have solution. we will submit our site map to webmaster tools, but with some more parameters. Whats are this? Lets see.
If you go to the site map section in Google webmaster tools, you will see that you are allowed to submit the rest part after your site url
this part already exists, you have to submit the rest part. Lets decide to submit atom.xml. First add one parameter like as follows
this will tell the server to stay on the atom.xml not redirect to another(as it will if your using other feeds like feedburner). Now use another two parameters:
This is telling that posts url will be start from index one, your latest post and it will results maximum 100 posts. So, just checkout the following url on browser:
Wow!! Yes, now it showing all the posts you have written. Having more than 100 posts, nothing to worry, simply change the last number 100 to the number of posts you have. Submit this and checkout in few days. You will get how many urls are indexed. do some more works on which aren't indexed and submit again.
You can also submit this same site map to all search engines like
yahoo, bing, alexa, ask etc confidently.Have fun!!!
