how can I customize my blog using blogger for SEO performance?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          Now that I have the steps for creating my own blog on blogger, I would like to take the next step and inquire about SEO optimization performance.  For instance, how can I customize my blog within blogger so it will be seen within the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and so forth?  

           Any step by step guide for accomplishing this goal will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

           George

Hi,

This is almost the same as regular website

Get custom domain name

Write quality content with keywords density like 2%.

You can use custom Permalink, you can still use the automatic permalink and only edit the one you want
Remove all stops words like a, the from the permalink

For comments try to add key words when you reply, moderate the post and add nofollow attribute

Add tag to image.

Use Social Media to promote your content.

Add meta tag

To allow unique page title
edit the HTML code
find this code
<title><data:blog.pagetitle/></title>

Open in new window


and replace it with this code

<b:if cond= 'data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.title/></title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/></title>
</b:if>

Open in new window

This is very simple
When you write a blog post you will see Permalink just under Schedule
click on it then select Custom radio button.

By default this is the title that will appear, but sometimes it is too long so it better to shorter the link.
You can rename to what you want just put a - between the keywords
Here is what is allowed A-Z a-z 0-1
