Automatic Google Sitemaps for Blogger.com and WordPress.com

When I wrote “Creating a Google Sitemap for Your WordPress.org Blog” earlier this month, I said that if you were writing on a Blogger.com or WordPress.com platform, you didn’t have a sitemap available to submit to Google Web Developer Tools.

I was wrong.

If you’re on Blogger.com, tack on rss.xml to your blog’s URL to access your sitemap. For those of you who are running your RSS feed through Feedburner, you’ll get redirected to another page, but the file is still there. Just use the file name when submitting it.

If you’re on WordPress.com, tack on sitemap.xml to your blog’s URL to access your sitemap. Use that file name when submitting it to Google Web Developer Tools.
