How Create a Sitemap


One of the limitations of a blog is that it doesn't have an index or sitemap of the site that could make it easier for readers to find content that they are searching for.
While the blog archive and labels have all the information about the published post, these do not appear on a single page completely, so searching for more posts is not always easy.

Luckily, this gadget will help you to add a table of contents or sitemap on Blogger showing the index of all posts separated by categories that have been published. It will also show the latest posts with a text saying New!

Step 1. Login to your Blogger Dashboard and select your blog
Step 2. Go to Pages > click the New Page button and select Blank page
Step 3.  Click on the HTML tab and paste the following code inside the empty box:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<style>
p.labels a{color: #242424; text-transform: uppercase;font-size: 15px;}
a.post-titles {color: #0000FF;}
ol li{list-style-type:decimal;line-height:25px;}
</style>
