Better sitemap alternative for blogger sites [Webmaster]

Here is a quick tip for all web-masters who use blogger service. Blogger will not generate full site-map for each blog.

The default sitemap in robots.txt in any blogger hosted site is the latest RSS feed.
http://<site>/feeds/posts/default?orderby=updated
Ex: http://blog.aditech.info/feeds/posts/default?orderby=updated

This RSS feed can have at max 25 posts. So at any point you will have 25 links in your sitemaps.
In case you want to have full sitemap of your entire site with all links in it so that you can easily see out of how many are indexed by google; just add
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
as sitemap in Google webmaster tools.

This will have 500 post links of your site which is more than enough. (You can add another sitemap with start-index=501 and max-results=500 in case you have thousands of posts )
