How to Generate and Add Your Site Map To Google Search Engine


techsfair.com

Google introduced the Sitemaps protocol so web developers can publish lists of links from across their site. A site map therefore is a comprehensive list of pages and links of your entire blog, or website or simply an overview of your entire blog site at a glance.
These (web pages and web links) contents may be addressed to users or to software for specific purposes. Many sites have user-visible sitemaps which present a systematic view, typically hierarchical, of the site. The main aim of a site map is to help visitors find specific pages, and can also be used by web crawlers. Alphabetically organized site maps, sometimes called site indexes, are a different approach.
For search engines and others, to crawl your site, there is a systematic format which you will have to follow while building your site map. The XML Sitemap, which lists the pages in a site, their relative importance, and how often they are updated. This is pointed to, from the robots.txt file and is typically called sitemap.xml. The procedure, format or the style your site map will use is particularly important for web sites which include pages that are not accessible through links from other pages, but only through the site's search tools or by dynamic construction of URL’

follow the following steps below to generate a site map for your blogsite.
#1 log into www.google.com/webmaster  dash board.

you can either test it by placing on the space below as you scroll down the page, if it okay it will tick allowed and highlight the color to green.

#9 On the right top side of your computer click on add/test site map.
#10 Place the copied sitemap.xml in the box and click on test.  click on view test, this will display all your blog post, showing your the number of pages in your blog. at this time you can then click on submit, and in next two or three days you will see the details of your pages.
