I have two blogs. Let's say http://name.blogspot.com/ and the other one is http://name2.blogspot.com/

For blog 1: While submitting sitemap to Google webmaster tool I selected the option and then added rss.xml at last. (http://name.blogspot.com/rss.xml)

Sitemap added successfully.

For blog 2: I followed the same procedure but it didn't work.

Then I tried to open the url (http://name.blogspot.com/rss.xml). The url was showing the atom feeds.

I tried same with the other blog but that url is redirecting to the feedburner feeds.

I think this is the reason why the other blog's sitemap is not getting submitted.

Help me with it.

From Using FeedBurner with Google Webmaster Tools:

To fix it, change your sitemap URL from this:


to this:

I feel that XML Sitemap submission is a very important task for SEO. That is why we need to submit SItemap of our URL. These tips are really helpful to us. Thanks. – user15297 May 9 '12 at 5:35
