four essential things for blogspot seo
The default templates available for blogs hosted through Blogger.com use a variable called <data:blog.pageTitle> to create the text that goes in the <title> tag of a Blogger post entry. By default it will be the blog title.
If you go to Layout -> Edit HTML to look at the XML code that makes up your current Blogger template, you will likely see this section of code: <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>. If you want to optimize each of your blog pages for the search engines (thereby bringing more traffic to your blog), you can change this tag so that the keywords displayed in the title tag for each of your pages aren’t watered down.
In order to accomplish this, you would replace the default title code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageName == ""'>
Adding seperate meta tag description and keyword for every post
1. Switch to the Edit HTML tab of your template and find this line:
b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/
2. Add this code just below that line:
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == "http://YOUR-BLOG-URL.com/"'>
<meta content='DESCRIPTION' name='description'/>
<meta content='KEYWORDS' name='keywords'/>
This was done to add META Tags to the main page of the blog.
3. Now add this code just below the code you add just now:
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == "http://YOUR-BLOG-URL.com/2008/08/bla-bla-bla.html"'>
<meta content='Type you post description here.' name='description'/>
<meta content='Type, the, post, keywords, here' name='keywords'/>
Replace http://YOUR-BLOG-URL.com/2008/08/bla-bla-bla.html with the URL of the specific post you want to change the META Tags of.
4. Repeat Step 3 for as many blog posts you want to have unique META Tags for.
Adding Read More to blogspot
Adding read more to every post is so simple.
1) Go to settings->basic
2) In global setting Select post editor and select as Updated editor and save it
3) Now you can see readmore in your post WYSIWYG editor
4) if you cant see the readmore button in the editor dont worry just add <!-- more --> to your part
eg : Upper description ................. ...............
<!-- more -->
cont description ....................
No the content above <--! more --> is shown with read more option
To change the Read more text go to design->Page elements and click edit in Blogpost.Here you can change the readmore button text
Note:For those using a customized third-party template, you will have to add a snippet of code to make Jump Breaks work.
To do this, access your blog's Layout | Edit HTML tab, and first backup your template by clicking the Download Full Template link at the top of the page. This will download an XML version of your template which you can upload later at any time if you need to.
After backing up your template, then click the Expand Widget Templates checkbox, and scan your HTML for the following snippet:
Once you've located that code, paste the following snippet directly below it:
<a expr:href='data:post.url + "#more"'><data:post.jumpText/></a>
After you've pasted in the code, click Save and then you're done!
