How To Submit Blogspot Static Pages Sitemap To Google For Srearch Engine Ranking

Still on blogger sitemap submission. You can also submit your blogger static page sitemap if you really want your static pages like; about us, contact us, advertise, terms and  privacy policy to show up on google search results.

In my previous article, "How to submit Blogger sitemap to Google search console", there, you will understand how important it is for you to submit the sitemap (XML file) of your blogger blog in order to have a better indexing and crawling of your blog posts.

Sitemap submission is divided into two: 
1.  For Posts (Articles).
2.  For Static Pages.


In the previous article, we covered the Posts (Articles) sitemap submission in which the sitemap does not contain links of your static pages but here, i will be showing you how to submit the sitemap of your blogger static pages.

Examples of your blogger static pages include:
==> About Us
==> Contact Us
==> Privacy Policy
==> Affiliate Disclosure or ANY page you create.

As a matter of fact, submitting static pages are not so important to index on google search console, except if you are the type who sometimes publishes valuable contents using "Static Pages" other than "Posts", then submitting a sitemap for your static pages in Google search console becomes important.

How can you access your Sitemap for Static Pages?
As you might already know, we create atom.xml sitemap for our blog posts, but in the case of Static pages, Google has already created the sitemap which can be access by adding sitemap-pages.xml at the end of your blog address.

For example:

For Default Blogspot Domains:

http://YourBlog.blogspot.com/sitemap-pages.xml

For Custom Domains:
http://www.YourBlog.com/sitemap-pages.xml

Replace YourBlog with your domain name.

Submitting Blogger Static Pages Sitemap in Google Search Console

As the sitemap for static pages has already been created, we just need to submit it to Google search console so that the search bots can find them and index them.

Follow the steps below to get it done.

1. Go To Google Search Console (aka as Google webmaster tools)
2. Choose your blog from the list provided
3. Choose Crawl > Sitemaps from the left sidebar menu

4. Click ADD/TEST SITEMAP button towards yours top-right side

Insert sitemap-pages.xml inside the text field.
Hit "Submit" button and you are all done!
This method is applied to other search engines like Bing/Yahoo and Yandex etc.

Select Which Pages You Want To Index in Google

You can always decide which static page you want to get indexed in Search engines.

By default, each page will get indexed. But in case if you want to protect any page from getting indexed, you need to do some settings.

Please share your views with us on the effects of adding the sitemap and let me know in the comments if you need any help in submitting your blog sitemap.

What is a Sitemap?

A sitemap is simply a map of your website(blog).

If you don't submit the sitemap of your website(blog), Google crawlers will not include your blog when it is going around the web indexing new web pages in its database, this is why new blogs are usually not ranking early on google search results.
A sitemap is either an XML or HTML file that contains all the URLs of the pages inside your blog.

While HTML sitemap helps your visitors to navigate through your blog, an XML sitemap helps the search engine crawlers the same way.

When you submit an XML sitemap to Google Webmasters, it helps search engine crawlers to find all the URLs on your website and add it to their database.

There are various parts of a sitemap that affect the crawling rate of your blog, such as the size of your sitemap, the number of URLs in your sitemap, indexing priority of pages on your blog, updating frequency, etc.

Now that you know about sitemap and its importance, let’s move on to the further steps.

RSS Feed: How To Setup Feedburner RSS Feed For Your Blog

Without wasting your time, i will be showing you in this post "How You Can Setup Feedburner RSS Feed For Your Website(Blog)". Before i start, let me use the below paragraph to explain a bit of what RSS Feed and Feedburner.


What is Feed Feedburner and RSS Feed?

Feedburner: is a free web service designed by google which enables bloggers and podcasters to easily activate / manage the subscription of their blog readers so that when ever the blog is updated with a new information, feedburner automatically receives the update and helps to wire it directly to the blog subscriber's email even when they have not visited the blog for a long time.  

In the other hand, it helps website (blog) owners to keep track of number of readers that are subscribed to their blog, number of clicks received by each blog post etc.

RSS Feed Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication”: This is a technology integrated into feedburner, and when activated into a website (blog) it helps to grab the website(blog) content, summarizes it and gets it ready for feedburner to publish. 

How It Works:

Feedburner normally collects the regular RSS feed which your blog creates (website(blog) creates this automatically most of the time) and grabs it, gives it a new address, tracks anyone who subscribed to that address, and sends the summary to them. However, if you want to make it more obvious and easier for readers to subscribe using RSS, or want to know exactly how many people subscribed to your blog  then the best option is to add a Feedburner RSS feed and email subscription to your blog.

Setting Up Your Feedburner Feed:

Step 1.  Go to Feedburner and sign in to Feedburner with your Google Account (create a Google Account first if you don’t have one!).

Step 2.  Add your Blog URL to the Burn a Feed Right This Instant and click Next



Step 3.  Leave Atom source feed selected and click Next as shown below.


Step 4.  On “Welcome” page, make sure you are happy with the title and FeedBurner address (URI) of your new feed or you can choose to edit the name and feed address, then click Next.



Step 5.  On the Congrats! page, click Next.





Step 6.  On the stats configuration page select Clickthroughs and I want more! and then click Next.


Congrats! you done setting up your feedbuner account.
