Blogger Sitemap Page Example
An example of Blogger sitemap is the one below:
The Blogger xml sitemap is divided into sub-sitemaps, each containing a maximum of 150 links of posts published on the blog. If you access the Blogger sitemap page in a browser, you will see the sub-sitemaps it contains.
Below are examples of the Blogger sub-sitemaps that make up the parent sitemap above:
Each sub-sitemap is dynamically generated and the updates as you publish new posts on your blog and update the existing ones.
As at the time of publishing this, Blogger has generated 12 sub-sitemaps for Ogbongeblog.
This is because the total number of published posts so far on the blog is 1745 posts. 150 x 12 = 1800.
Once the total number of published posts reaches 1801, a new sub-sitemap will be automatically generated by Blogger which will make it 13 sub-sitemaps.
NB: The Blogger XML sitemap is auto-added to the Blogger robots.txt file at : www.yourblog.com/robots.txt
