Like seriously, when I saw that the rankings, I felt depressed then, but I took a man heart and I keep working.

Some people can’t do that because after seeing it, they will feel like quitting blogging, that is why I said checking blog’s Alexa rankings is a bad habit.

New bloggers start blogging with blogger platform because it is free, I also start with that, but after some months, when my eyes opened I moved to WordPress.

Bloggers seo is also good because that blogger platform is created by Google itself, so the seo should be good if you set it very well.

Let me quickly give you guys a point, back then after moving to WordPress, I applied for Google Adsense and got approved after 3hours.

I was amazed, I applied for it on blogger and it was approved after 3days.

That was the first thing, I saw as a message that WordPress is a very good platform.

Am I a talk-active? People say that but I don’t believe, just trying to express my self in my language( Laughing out loudly).

The Points are listed below:

1. Editing Of Meta Tags And The Page title

seo for blogger blog

Meta Tags are tags in the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) that describes some aspect of the contents of a Web page.

As I defined the meta tags for you, it describes the web page to search engines, so now you have to get your meta tags well arranged before submitting sitemaps.

Meta tags are always inside templates, it is identified with <meta>.

Example of a meta tag is:

<meta content='width=device-width, initial-scale=1' name='viewport'/>

How To Edit Meta Tags And Page title

To edit your meta tags you have to follow the steps below.

  • Login To Blogger Dashboard
  • Navigate Themes
  • Then Click Edit Theme.
  • Then You Search for the <head> tag.
  • Then next thing you will see after the <head> tag is the meta tags. You will identify it with <meta>, Meta Tags Start With <meta>.
  • Then you will see a lot of meta tags, don't be panic, we are here to edit some meta tags, not everything.

I will give you some things to search there and you edit it.

<meta content='YOUR BLOG DESCRIPTION' name='keywords'/>

You will replace your blog description, with Your Blog Description inside the meta tags.

Note: The description will be shown on the search engines.

The Keywords is the most crucial things inside the meta tags.

So after doing that you will also edit the social medias account inside the meta tags.

<meta expr:content:='data:blog.title' property='og:site_name'/><link href='https://plus.google.com/xxxxx/posts' rel='publisher'/>
<link href='https://plus.google.com/xxxxx/about' rel='author'/>
<link href='https://plus.google.com/xxxxx' rel='me'/>
<meta content='xxxxx' name='google-site-verification'/>
<meta content='xxxxx' name='msvalidate.01'/>
<meta content='xxxxx' name='alexaVerifyID'/>
<meta content='Nigeria' name='geo.placename'/>
<meta content='Olabiyi Malik' name='Author'/>
<meta content='general' name='rating'/>
<meta content='id' name='geo.country'/>
<meta content='Facebook App ID here' property='fb:app_id'/>
<meta content='Facebook Admin ID here' property='fb:admins'/>
<meta content='en_US' property='og:locale'/>
<meta content='en_GB' property='og:locale:alternate'/>
<meta content='id_ID' property='og:locale:alternate'/>
<meta content='summary' name='twitter:card'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageTitle' name='twitter:title'/>
<meta content='@username' name='twitter:site'/>
<meta content='@username' name='twitter:creator'/>

So just try and edit it, the meta tags are written in English, but as a blogger, you should know some programming languages, it is very simple.

You can also go through some metas and edit it.

  1. Wow what can i say than to give you a big thumbs up, this article is very informative and will also help improve blogger blog seo, like mine, I’ll make sure to use this method soon and give more of my credits to you.. Well done brother

  2. Hi Malik, you’re coming up. I wish you success in your careers.

    This piece above is a very informative one. You’ve taken your time to explain few things blogspot blog owners can do to help their blog’s SEO. I am in full support of the content because I also run my blog on “blogger”.

    However, SEO doesn’t end there for blogspot bloggers. Here are 5 other SEO practices for blogspot bloggers. You can check it out if you like to improve your SEO.

  3. Hi Malik.. You are really focused on blogging and I’m greatly impressed to see how far you’ve come in such a short space of time. But as much as I love your blog and love your articles, I would still like to point out some things I’ve noticed on your blog posts while reading em.

    1. Your post titles: The way you put your titles are a bit confusing. Like this one now, “How to set SEO for blogger blog(Top Rated Method)” You aren’t supposed to use attributes like brackets, quotes and all that on titles except a few like colon, Comma, and a few others. It’s very bad for SEO and People who aren’t so familiar with blogger would think that there is a dedicated settings panel in blogger to configure SEO when there isn’t.
    Instead of that title, You could say “Best Top-rated SEO Practises For Blogspot Blogs”. Since “blogger” is some what a known word in the blogosphere to categorically define a person who is into blogging rather than it is of a brand.

    2. Your style of writing: I have noticed you make a lot of grammatical errors in your posts. Frankly, No one is perfect.. And that is why people “proofread” before publishing. Before i publish a post, I proofread it like 3 times. Even after proofreading it in MS word, I still use jetpack to proofread it again to make sure the words are correct before publishing it.
    Yet again.. Even after publishing it, I’ll still proofread it and when I notice a mistake in the post(Either in the words or paragraphing or order of punctuation) I still correct.
    It’s not an easy process but with time you’ll get used to it.
    Everyday aspire to learn in order to acquire our desire to be better.

    Please take this friendly advice not as an insult but as an advice it’s meant to be.. Thanks.

  4. Great seo tips, thanks for sharing and keep the good work growing, please Malik I’m not trying to spam here. I noticed that some bloggers are still using mobile phone to manage their blog most especially on blogspot and to edit html codes directly on blogger.com dashboard isn’t that easy so this why I would recommend the use of quickEdit text editor™ and make it easy for them to edit, delete, copy/past codes on Android device. This app can be use to edit php, XML, css, and lot more!
    I so much like your tips.
