How to add sitemaps auto discovery to robot.txt ??

As I just mentioned in my earlier post How to make a sitemap for Blogger blog,A sitemap is essential for your blog to have your posts indexed as soon as you write them.From now you can add sitemap link URL to your robot.txt file instead of going to Google webmaster central and submitting your sitemap there.Ask.com, Google, Microsoft Live Search and Yahoo! have announced the support of “autodiscovery” of Sitemaps. The new open-format auto discovery allows webmasters to specify the location of their Sitemaps within their robots.txt file, eliminating the need to submit sitemaps to each search engine separately.This will be a lot helpful to the webmasters who can now easily submit their content to the search engines and benefit from reduced unnecessary traffic by the crawlers and bots. The search engines get information with regards to pages to index as well as metadata with clues about which pages are newly updated and which pages are identified as the most important and search users get more fresh content.Just by adding one single line to the robot.txt file in your root directory ,you can add auto sitemap discovery.

Simply add the sitemap url following the word sitemap like this
Sitemap:URL of sitemap

Update your robot.txt file now and get indexed as soon as you write.
