In my previous post I told you how to add a site or blog to Google Webmaster Tools and in the end of the post I said that I will show you how to submit sitemap in Google webmaster tools. So in this post I will show you how to submit blogger sitemap to Google webmaster tools. It is a very important step to submit a sitemap because it helps Google to crawl your links and index them. It doesn't mean that only submitting sitemap is important, robots txt optimization, meta tags optimization, blog title optimization and seo basics are also more important.
Submitting sitemap in Google webmaster tools is the second most important step towards better seo, but in blogger it isn't simple like websites as in websites the sitemap exists at http://www.mywebsite.com/sitemap.html but in blogger there is no sitemap like that so you have to use anyone of the below links to find your sitemap:
If your blog has below 500 posts use this sitemap:
If your blog has more than 500 posts use this one:
How to use above links? Just paste any of the above link after your blog link say that my blog has below 500 posts so I will use atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500 as http://101helper.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500.
So lets begin follow below steps to submit your blog sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools.

Step 6: Click on Submit Sitemap and refresh the page.
It will take an hour or 5 hours or a day to show your site's data. After submitting sitemap just leave it to Google. Once your data is updated you can check stats of your indexed urls and crawl errors. After approval it will look like the sitemap shown in below image:
