A site map helps indexing a site because it ensures that all pages are accessible to crawlers.
Most search engines only after a finite number of links on a page, so for a very large site, a site map can be necessary for visitors and search engines can access all pages.

The structure of a sitemap file is equivalent to an RSS feed, so we will use the RSS feed of our blog as Blogger sitemap.

To Submit the sitemap of your Blogger blog to Google, follow these steps:
In webmasters tools, select your blog and go to "Optimization"> "Sitemaps"
Click on the "Add / Test a Sitemap" and Input ABCD and press the following line:

atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100
Depending on the number of articles in your blog, you have to submit multiple sitemaps by varying the start-index value in the address of the sitemap. for example if you have between 300 and 400 articles in your blog, you need to submit those 4 Sitemaps:

atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=101&max-results=100
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=201&max-results=100
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=301&max-results=100
By adding a SiteMap you provided Google all the details and information on your blog; which optimizes indexing and archiving your articles in its search engine.
