Google Webmaster Tool which was recently named as Google Search Console is one of the most important tools for Blogger. If you have nil idea about SEO but know to use this tool in a right manner then you need not worry about your blog ranking and traffic, as Google Search Console will do the rest for you. In order to take complete benefits of Search Console, you must know a few features in it. One of the most important features in that is SITEMAP. Submitting your Blogger or WordPress sitemap in Google Search Console can help spiders(crawlers) of Google to find the new blog post quickly and frequently crawl it for the targetted keyword your blog post is using.

A sitemap is an XML file that has a list of the blog post and URL in the Blog. The sitemap contains the details about the number of posts that have been indexed by Google. As you keep publishing new post few of them are not indexed automatically as there are a lot of sites which are being published every minute. To help Google know that your new post is ready to get indexed it is important to submit it to Google, and you can do it in just one hit.

How To Submit Your Blog To Google Search Console (GOOGLE WEBMASTER TOOL)

Before we submit the sitemap to search console we have to submit our blog to the Search Console. Submitting blog is different than submitting a sitemap to Google search console.

STEP 1: LOGGING AND SUBMITTING YOUR BLOG TO GOOGLE SEARCH CONSOLE

First, you need to submit the blog to Console by adding the Blog URL, this can be done directly by heading over to Google than searching for the keyword Google Search Console.

But if your a Blogspot user then this is much easier as all you have to do is to head over to your blogger dashboard then select the setting option then click on Search Preferences then under the Crawlers and Indexing part you will find Google Search Console, next to which you have an Edit pop up click on it then it will take you to the search console dashboard where you have to enter the blog url.

That will enable your blog to get submitted to the Search console. But there are lot of many other things to work which will help in terms of ranking, one of that facts is Sitemap and Fetch and Render.

STEP 2: VERIFY YOUR BLOG OWNERSHIP IN SEARCH CONSOLE

If you haven't verified your blog to Google search console then you can do it in no time all you have to do is to go to the Search Console Dashboard then SELECT THE MANAGE PROPERTY option where you have to click on the Add or Remove user.

After you have done that you will see an option on top right-hand corner stating "MANAGE PROPERTY OWNER". Click on "Verify using different methods". Now you will find different options to verify the blog but the best method to verify is by verifying "HTML TAG".
Where all you have to do is to copy the code and paste the code below the head section of the blogger. To do that you have to go to the theme and click CTRL-F then search for the key term then just beneath that paste the code. Then click on "Verify" on search console.

If the blog ownership is verified then you will see a Green Tick telling you that Google has verified the ownership of the Blog. If you don't see the green tick then don't worry you can verify it by other methods.

Step 3: Steps To Submit The Blogger Post To Search Console


 After you have completed the logging in and submitted the blog to Search console, now it is time to submit the blog sitemap.
  1. Go to the Search Console Dashboard then select the CRAWL option, then click on the Sitemap.
  2. On the top right-hand corner you will see ADD/TEST SITEMAP option click on that, then as mentioned below copy the code and paste it.

  4. Three codes are given below use the first one if your blog post is below 500 and the other if it is more than 500. Or just simply enter "sitemap.xml"  in the option and all your sitemap will be submitted to Google.
  5. Once you have done that click on the refresh button. 

CODE 1: For Blog with blog post LESS than 500.


atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500


CODE 2: For Blog with blog post MORE than 500.
