Sitemap is a XML file that contains all the links of your site/blog. Sitemap can be manually created or automatically created using some online tools. These Sitemap can be submitted to search engine via the tools they provide or by mentioning the sitemap in robots.txt. In Blogger blogs the sitemap is located in different places.
In Blogger Blogs with the sub domain, the sitemap is in a simple location ie :

But on other blogs ie blogs on custom domains doesn’t have a sitemap like the above URL. Instead you should use the following URL :

Now, Let’s mention the sitemap on robots.txt. For That Go To Blogger -> YOUR BLOG -> Settings -> Search Preferences.
Click on Edit button near Custom robots.txt and add the following in the textbox:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /search?q=*
Disallow: /*?updated-max=*
Allow: /

Replace The yellow background URL with your blog’s sitemap URL and click on Save Changes button :

When the search engines crawl your site, they will get the sitemap URL from robots.txt and they will index all the URL‘s in the sitemap.
