After successfully creation of your blog you need to optimize it so that your blog will appear in search engine and you will get traffic to your blog which will help you get many referrals. So, lets start.
What kind of title you have to choose?
what is that keyword?
Keywords are the popular words which is used by people while they search something in search engine.for better understanding.
Suppose your blog is about ptc site then you can give a title similar to ptc site
like-” top 10 elite ptc site” which contains keyword “top, elite, ptc site”
Eg- Your title- Top 10 ptc sites
Your blog address- Top10elite ptc site or ptc review best ptc sites.
choose an address for your blog. If that address is not available then do slightly variation, like
After you set your blog address your next step is to choose a suitable template for your blog. You can choose an available template from blogspot or you can choose a custom template. For choosing a custom template for your blog you can search it from google. In google search just type free template for blogger. You will get many free template to download. just choose an attractive template which will be suitable for your blog. Download it. After download the template, extract it’s XML files and save it your notepad or wordpad. Now a days many wordpress theme which has been converted to blogger theme is available for free. You can download a free wordpress theme and upload it in your blog.
Then log into to your blogger dashboard, see below how to upload the template
then click back up/restore to upload your xml file of the template which you have saved earlier in your notepad . The whole process will be
your blogger dashboard–>template–>backup/restore–>upload the template
Otherwise copy the xml file from your notepad, go to your blogger dashboard, click on template, then click on edit template, then delete the existing xml of your template and paste the xml which you have copied from your notepad.
Now save the template
In compose you can write your post, insert a link,image and video. and in html section you can put your banner code. One thing remember, when you write your post, never try to copy from others content, if you copy others content then your blog will not get traffic because your content will be duplicate and will be penalized by google. And google DMCA has given the authority to original owner of the blog to remove your link from google and ban your account. So, create your own unique content, write it from your own.
After writing your post you can hit the publish button. Now your post has been published. Your next step will be add your site url to google webmaster tool. and add a sitemap for it.
google webmaster is the tool which let you know the indexing status of your site.
#1- Add your site url
#2-verify your ownership
Your sitemap url will be http://abc.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
means after your site URL just add atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
If, you do not know how to add a sitemap , then just click on your site url in google webmaster tool. After clicking the site url in left side you will find an option crawl. Then click on crawl, next you will find an option sitemap and click that sitemap. once you click on sitemap you will find an option add sitemap which is top of the right corner in google webmaster tool.
Then create a feed for your blog in feed burner and submit your feed url to rss directories.
META TAGS are important for search engine. Metatags contains the title, keywords, and the description of your blog. If you do not use metatags properly, it will create many duplicate title and descriptions which will cause your blog not to get more traffic and rank in google.
so here is the metatag format, you can use
<b:include data=’blog’ name=’all-head-content’/> <b:if cond=’data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl’></b:if> <b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == "index"’> <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title> <b:else/> <title><data:blog.pageName/> ~ <data:blog.title/></title></b:if> <meta content=’your page description here’ name=’description’/> <meta content=’your keyword description here’ name=’Author’/> <meta content=’index, follow’ name=’robots’/> <meta content=’author’ name=’author’/>
It will be placed in head tags in your template. Please follow this step. log into blogger dashboard->select template->select edit html-> select proceed. Then you will find your blog template and place this meta tag below <head> tag.
your metatags will not be visible in your web page, but it will help search engines to understand what is your page about.
Setting robots.txt is important, because this is where you will let search engine bot to index your web page. Here you are privileged to tell search engine bot which page of your blog to index and which page should not. If you don’t want a particular page of your blog not to be indexed, then you can block that url in robots.txt
Even if you can block a particular search engine or directories not to index your webpage in robot text. So, if you don’t use robots.txt properly then your robot will eat your blog and your blog will not be indexed by search engine bot. You can see below, the proper way to implement your robots.txt.
User-agent: GooglebotDisallow: User-agent: YahoobotDisallow: User-agent: bingbot Disallow: User-agent: MSNBotDisallow: User-agent: TechnoratibotDisallow: User-agent: *Disallow: /searchAllow: /Sitemap: http://yoursite.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500
for implementing this process log into your blogger dashboard and click on setting then click on search preference. you will find custom robot text. It will ask you enable custom robots.txt? select yes . copy the above code and paste into your custom robots.txt and never forget to replace “yoursite” with your site url
STOP GOOGLE TO REDIRECT YOUR BLOG URL TO COUNTRY SPECIFIC
after few months of creation of your blog, your blog url address will be changed. suppose your blog url abc.blogspot.com . when people from india viewing your blog, they will see your blog url “abc.blogspot.in” instead of abc.blogspot.com
similarly when people from australia visit your blog they will see your url “abc.blogspot.com.au”
for japan it will be “abc.blogspot.jp” like that it will redirect your blog url in 15 countries.
Why does google do this?
google does this because if the content of your webpage violate the law of a specific country then google will block your url not to be visible in that country. how ever your blog will be accessible in other countries
is redirection bad for your blog?
yes, it is seriously bad, as it affects your
#3- alexa rank
#4- google rank
From my own expreience, redirection cause your blog to get less traffic, and it will affect your alexa rank
because your blog divided into 15 different url address. so every url has different alexa rank and your back links will not be same for every url.
STOP GOOGLE TO REDIRECT YOUR URL
There is a way to stop google not to redirect your blog url for country-specific. just copy the code below and paste it into your template in between head tag.
Follow this step
Log into blogger dashboard->select template->click on edit html
Now copy the code above and paste it in below <head> tag
Then save the template. now you are done. After you have done this, your next step will be optimize your blog in order to make your blog visible in search engine.
