How to submit blogger blog sitemap to Yahoo

Hey!

This post will tell you how to submit sitemap of your blogger-blogspot blog to the next big gun of search engine industry, Yahoo. Google and Yahoo are the two major search engine giants that can deliver maximum organic traffic to your online business, only if you use hard known tips and tricks of SEO (search engine optimization). Traffic from these two are like lifeblood to your online business existence and can never be denied.

The benefits of submitting a sitemap to Yahoo are pretty similar to what I described in my previous post "How to submit blogger blog sitemap to Google". Read it out to have a clear picture of the advantages and benefits.

Submitting sitemap to Yahoo is pretty easy. You just need a Yahoo ID to login.


  • Type your blog URL as shown in the below screenshot. Replace "yourblogurl" with the original url of your blog and Click on "Add My Site"

  • After adding your site, you need to verify you ownership

  • There are two ways to verify your ownership. One is to upload a file in the root directory of the website, which is not possible with a blogger blog.
  • Second option is to add a metatag, which is the only way we can verify the ownership of a blogger blog. First, copy the metatag that is displayed to you, as shown in the screenshot below

  • Then "Sign in" to your Blogger account>Layout>Edit HTML and paste the metatag just below the head tag, as shown in the sreenshot below, and Save the changes.

  • Next, you will get a message saying "Your site is pending authentication"
Important:
Never remove the metatag, they revalidate your ownership by checking your ownership at regular intervals of time.

  • Next, go back to Site Explorer Home, and check the box next to your blog URL and click on the Manage button.

  • Type "rss.xml" or "atom.xml" in the box provided. It enables Yahoo to discover more of your site content via your rss or atom feeds, so that it can index your pages quickly whenever your blog is updated.
  • Next, click on the Add Feed button

  • Thats it! Congrats! You have successfully submitted your blog sitemap to Yahoo. Login after a couple of days to check your blog stats, i.e., indexed pages, any errors, traffic delivered, etc.

How to submit blogger blog sitemap to Google

Hey!

If you thought that submitting sitemaps to search engines is of no use, then better change your mind. Let me tell you what sitemaps are and how they can help you get massive traffic from search engines like Google.

The sitemap helps Google bot to crawl and index every pages of your site and tells you if there are any problems while indexing. It also tells you how many pages are actually indexed and what people searched in the search engine to visit your site.

While you know that it can take from 2 days to 2 months for a search engine like Google to index your site or blog, now this is where the sitemap comes into action. If your sitemap is submitted to the Google, then your site is crawled every hour and any new content or posts are immediately indexed. Imagine getting traffic to your latest post immediately after creating it. I've seen posts of my fellow bloggers getting crawled and indexed within 2 mins of creating it. This is awesome! Huge organic traffic follows thereafter, if you have a great content in your post.

While submitting sitemaps of a website is pretty easy to submit to Google, but how blogger/blogspot blog sitemaps are submitted to Google is unknown to most of the newbies.
Follow the below steps to submit your blogger-blogspot blog sitemap to Google.

  • First go to Google Webmaster tools and sign up (or sign in if you have a Gmail account)
  • After you login, you'll see the below screen asking you to add a site. Add your blog URL here without http or www.

  • Next, it asks you to verify your site, to confirm whether you are its owner or not. Click on the "verify your site" link

  • Then follow the next step

  • There are two ways to verify your ownership, but for blogger users there is only one way : to add a metatag

  • Copy the metatag. Now Sign in to your blogger account and click the Layout button>Edit html and paste the metatag just after the head tag and save the changes.

  • Now go back to Google Webmaster tools and click the "verify" button. There will be a confirmation message saying that you've succesfully verified.

  • Now you have to submit a sitemap for Google to crawl your site. Go back to the Google Webmaster Dashboard(Home) and click the Add link which is next to your blog name and in the sitemaps column. You'll see this.

  • Choose "Add general sitemap" from the drop down menu and type rss.xml or atom.xml next to your blog address as shown below




  • Then click the "Add general web sitemap" button.




  • Congrats! Your sitemap is succesfully submitted to Google. Check 2-3 days later and you'll see detailed stats of your blog, i.e., indexed pages, any errors, etc, when you login to Google Webmaster Tools.

Hey!

Do you know what meta tags are? Meta tags actually communicate with the search engines and let them know what your site is all about. Especially, meta tag description is very vital and important. When search engines crawl your site or blog, they look out primarily for meta tags to gather information about your site. The meta tags give out accurate information about your site, ensuring that your site gets indexed and ranked accurately during a search. This ensures high ranking for a set of keywords your blog deals in and thus brings you massive traffic.

With websites, it is bit easy to edit the html codes, but this post is for all bloggers using blogger (blogspot) platform. Since, I installed this code to my blogger account, I have seen the amount of organic traffic, that is traffic from search engines like Google and Yahoo, to my blog has increased to almost 75%.
Yippieeeeeeeeeee!

So I'll share this with you all. Hope you'll like it.

Here is how to add meta tags to your blogger blog:
  • Sign in to your blogger account and click layout.

  • Next, go to edit HTML tab

  • Look at the screenshot and add the below mentioned code (type it in your blog)


  • Add the above code just below the line as shown in the below screenshot

  • Add your blog description and keywords and Save the changes.
WARNING:
DO NOT just fill up keywords in the Description. Absolutely not. Search engines like Google and others will ban your site forever from their search listings. Also DO NOT repeat the keywords more than 3 times.
Congratulations! You've successfully added the meta tags to your blogspot blog. Now enjoy the traffic surge. To check whether you've added the meta tags correctly or not, search for "meta tags analyzer tool" in google, and you'll get a number of sites where you can simply put your blog url in their tool and within 5 secs it will tell you whether there are any errors in your meta tags or not, and how to rectify it.

You might have created a very nice looking website or blog, with great content and great hard work. But, if you don't get traffic, then everything is a waste. So, I would share some deep dark secrets of all bloggers and webmasters who utilised these tips and tricks to build massive traffic, including me.

  • Search Engine
Search engine traffic is like lifeblood to any online business. Submit your blog to as many search engines as possible. Include big guns like Google, Msn and Yahoo but at the same time don't forget the small ones like Anoox, Ask, Altavista, Scrubtheweb, etc. Since, getting indexed in these small search engines won't bring much traffic, but the big guns like Google and Yahoo, will rank your site better in their search results because of this.
  • Blog Directories
You might already know the importance of blog directories. It brings Free traffic, gives your site a valuable backlink (blog directories are usually PR4 sites), increases your Pagerank too. Check my post on the list of top Blog Directories in my label "Blog and Website Tools".

Social bookmarking sites like Digg, Del.icio.us, Reddit, Furl rule the roost and would provide you with instant traffic. just register with them, save your blog posts as bookmarks and tag them  with keywords.

Increase traffic with blog directories

Hey!

Before you can monetize your blog, you need to rank your blog well in this online industry. And to rank it well, you can't neglect the importance of submission of your blog to blog directories.

Blog directories are a collection of useful resources that are available online. Unlike search engines that deliver your site to a visitor only when a particular keyword search is made, a blog directory, perhaps lists your blog or site permanently in its database and shuffles its position and rank as per your blog's traffic over the years.

The various advantages a blog directory offers are:
  • Free traffic
  • Valuable backlink
  • Increases your Pagerank
Perhaps, a blog directory is very useful for new blogs with Pagerank 0. Since, these blog directories have a Pagerank of 4 or higher. This means you are getting a backlink to your blog from a PR4 site, absolutely free. A similar backlink, whereas would cost somewhere around $100 per month. Imagine if you submit your blog to 10 blog directories per day, it would mean 10 valuable PR4 or higher backlins for that day.

This would increase your Google PR in its next update. Moreover, you stand to receive free traffic from them as well.
Below is the list of few top blog directories on world wide web. Try submitting your blogs to them for FREE.
All the best!

Vertical Text and Image Scroller for Blogs

 

Hey!

Do you see the scroller on my sidebar showcasing my blog updates? My search for this scroller finally ended. I was, in fact, searching for this scroller for a long time, and am sure many of you would also be interested in this mind-blowing widget, so I would share this with you all.

I spent almost one week of sleepless nights searching for this widget on web, but couldn't find a suitable one that could support text, images and links, all in one kitty. Moreover, most sites gave away complicated html codes, but only for websites. While I wanted it for blogs, precisely it should work on my blogger platform. I wanted a simple javascript code that could be copied and pasted, for people like me who know nothing about html language. 

Finally, I developed it on my own, with a little HTML knowledge. This widget is known with different names across web like text scroller, image scroller, news ticker, vertical scroller, etc.

This scroller has many advantages:
  • Supports text, images and links
  • Update your blog visitors with your updates
  • Vertically moves upwards, so very eye-catching
  • Saves valuable space of your blog by showcasing large information within a box
  • Excellent, if you are selling large number of sponsored links on your blog. Your advertiser links keep scrolling, saving space and generating more clicks from visitors.
  • No limit to the number of text, images or links it can show
Simply copy and paste the HTML code below on your blogs or websites and see the scroller come alive.
DO NOT edit the html code or it might not function properly. Only edit the portions I instruct you to do, so that you can use it on your blog as per your needs. Copy and paste the code below.






If you are using Blogger, then you already know how to add a html script to your sidebar. If you don't, then go to your Blogger; Dashboard; Layout; Add a gadget; Select HTML.
You'll come across a window as shown above.

TO ADD TEXT
Closely watch the above image. "Your Message scrolls here" is circled in red. This is also given in the javascript code that I have given above. Simply replace this with any text you want in your scroller. Remember, only this portion belongs to anything that you want your scroller to show. DO NOT edit anything else. Check it out, write anything in place of "Your Message scrolls here" and it will show up in the scroller. Write any number of statements, the scroller is programmed to accept all. Just keep pressing Enter on your keyboard to write a new statement on a fresh line. This makes your scroller look tidy.

TO ADD LINKS
Watch the above screenshot again. An arrow points towards an icon. That icon activates hyperlink. Write any anchor text you wish, in place of "Your Message scrolls here", then select that text with your mouse and click on the icon shown in the above image. It would ask you to enter the website address, to make your text into clickable links. Simple! Now sell as many sponsored links within this scrolling box and save space too.

TO ADD IMAGES
This is a lot easier. Just upload you photos and images to any free hosting site like Flickr, Picasa, etc. After you upload, get the "Embed it" javascript code from their dashboard menu. Copy that code and paste it in place of "Your Message scrolls here" or below any text that you have added to the scroller. Your images will show up in the scroller.

Hope this tool benefits, all you bloggers and webmasters.

Leave any comments or questions you have using this tool. I'll try resolving it as soon as possible.
