Best blogger seo tips

 

     1.Keyword Research

Blogspot Seo tips for bloggers

 

Keyword research is one of the necessary thing to do with your blog, whether blogspot or WordPress

 

Keyword are those phrase or words people entered in Google when they are looking for something, also called search queries.

 

Few importance of keyword research are

.It makes Google or search engine understand what the user need.

.If you follow keyword research as mentioned above it will help you know what your site visitors need.

You can also use these tools for a better keyword planning.

Google keyword planner,
semrush.

2.Plan your post content well

Blogger seo

As you have chosen your keywords is time to plan your post content and it should relate with your post content.

 

Try to use synonyms because search engine like Google love synonyms.

Try to use the head tag in your post, which it have the heading.

Eg

sub heading, minor heading and the normal e.g h2, h3, etc.

 

If you are writing and you want to make or add list on your post, you can use the heading to make a list of explanation.

For example

You make the list in sub heading (h2 or h3) then you use normal texts with the explanations.

 

3.Optimize your blog post title

Blogspot Seo tips for bloggers

Add keyword to your post title but do it carefully because it should not look like spam.

 

Make your posts title length to be around 60 character, more characters than that will be ignored in search results.

 

Which means when your post appear on Google, it’s title will cut if it more than the characters required.

 

Make sure your brand name is added and it should be at the end.

4.Put in practice by organizing your post

Blogspot seo

Just as they are tags and category in WordPress, while in blogger we have labels.

 

Try to use labels with your post to have a good navigation and user friendly for your blog.

Google want you to have a user friendly blog, to boast your site traffic.

 

For instance if you are writing about affiliate products these are the type of labels you might need.

Phone or phone review

Laptop or laptop review

Or if your blog is about traveling, you can use travel as label.

Avoid using too much labels, it would make your blog look like spam, too much labels may affect your blog seo.

Even blogspot limit the number of labels you can have in your blog which they give it’s limit to 5000. And for you 25-30 or less is ok.

5.Add meta description

Add meta description

Most beginners will be confused about meta description.

Meta description is a snippet of your entire blog that is displayed on search results.

It will summaries your blog content and it will tell the user what your blog is all about.

 

While in blogspot the length of meta description is 150 characters.

 

To add meta description on your blog navigate to settings > search appearance > meta tags.

Note!!!

By default it is set to disable. You now have to enable the search description, then you add your description and save it.

As you have enabled your search description on blogger, then any time you want to post you can edit each post meta description.

To do that you need to edit a post and go to search description at the left side of any post you edit.

You can still do that when when writing a new post.

By adding meta description on each of your post will reduce bounce rate on your blog.

6.Optimizing your images

Optimize blogger images

Optimization of images is being ignored by most webmasters.

By optimizing your images your post will boast in search results, and it brings more traffic from image search.

 

For search bot to crawl and understand the content of your image you need to optimize the image by adding alt text and tittle.

It’s not difficult, all you need to do is select the image you want to upload, then at the bottom you will see this option name properties.

You can now select properties and a popup will appear which you will add alt text and title.

7.optimize post url

optimize blogspot url
With WordPress it is necessary to optimize your url, In blogspot too its a good thing to optimize your url.
When you write a post head to setting and enter permalink, when you enter permalink it set automatic by default, choose custom and set the permalink as you want which you can put your target keywords.
In that part you should be careful when adding your target keywords.
If you put it too much it might look like spam.
Note that when you publish a post already you can not edit the url.

8.Turn on blogger ssl

 

Switch on Blogger ssl
This is one of the reason I like blogger with the option to switch on https for free, Google its self has announced to push unsecure blog down.
With this only secure blog will rank If you are using custom domain try to enable the https on your blog.
By default when you are using the blogspot sub domain it will turn on ssl automatically for you.
If you are using blogspot sub domain and your ssl is not on, then you should follow this step to put it on.
Login to your blogger account and head to settings >> basic.
Scroll down and you will see https redirect, turn it to “yes” to enable ssl on your website.
If you have already connected your blog with a custom domain, then you will see one more option,
“https availability”
Which you have to turn on by choosing yes.

9.Customize your blogger template

If you are using blogspot old theme like simple, then you need to setup something right.
The old theme blogger provide will need you to set the post title showing on search result by yourself.
When you create a post your titles will not appear on search results except your website name which is not good for seo and it will make people to bypass your article.
You can see the example with the image below with the website named technology by the admin.
Blogger not showing post's title
As you have seen, the first image is not showing post titles on Google except the website name called technology, now you will understand the difference with the image below.
Blogger showing post's title
As you have seen the second image comes with the post title and the website name at the end called technology, and that is how it’s supposed to be.
For you to make your post titles to appear on Google or search result then follow this guide How to Show Blogger Post Title on Google

10.Control spam comments

Blogger spam comments
You should try to prevent spam comments on your blog because it is caused by bad bots.
If some comments on your blog post is meant for the purpose of sharing links, then you should try to delete it rather than published.
When a comment is not related to your post which you publish, try to delete it or you can set your post comments to only Google account.
To do that you should head to settings, under it you will see ‘post, comments and sharing’
Enter it and you will see the comment options where you can choose for only Google users.
This is a good practice if your blog is receiving spam comments.
Show words verification
It will require people who are dropping comments on your post to complete a word verification step.
Words verification will help to reduce spam comments on your blog.
Blog authors will not see word verification for comments.
To enable words verification go to settings>>post, comments and sharing.
Scroll down at the end you will see words verification, choose “yes” and save your settings.

More seo bonus tips

When you are writing your article on blogger make sure you are using the rel=nofollow to the external links you put on your post.

Too much of external links with out rel=nofollow will affect your site seo.

Are you using cdn?

If you do, it’s a good practice, but if you are not using it, you should look for one.

Cdn will increase your site seo by bringing it world wide and nearest to each country location.

If you are a beginner and you must be confused about cdn.

Cdn is a content delivery network that brings your website nearest to other far countries to your server location.

If your website is hosted in India, it will be more fast for Indian visitors compare to usa visitors.

Which means if your website server is located in United Kingdom it will be more fast and accessible for uk visitors.

You can check out cdn to use for your website, or you can use cloudflare one of the free best cdn.

To use cdn, required you to have your own custom domain.

If you are using blogger sub domain, it’s ok because everything is being controlled by Google.

If you are using custom domain, it is necessary for you to use cdn on your website.

There’s a time all blogger website with custom domain went offline, except if using cdn or blogger sub domain it’s remains online.

That’s why I said if you using blogger sub domain, you don’t have to worry about the restriction of cdn to sub domains.
