You can host many blogs as you required with free of cost, but also required to be optimized for each search engines when looking for search engines rankings.
Blogger has no provision to add meta tags easily to your blog. Hence it has to be done manually and include the necessary tags to your blog. If you have ever tried to include those tags you might have experienced there is no easy way to do that. For this reason I have decided to discuss few tips and how to optimize blog for search engines.
The title of the blog is most important for search engines and it lets the search engines to know what your blog is about. Include the following code to your blogger blog in head and title tag.
head – b:include data="blog" name="all-head-content" title – data:blog.pageTitle
The description of the blog should be included in Meta tag. The description should give the information to search engines in a meaningful way. It should be framed in complete sentence. Include the following code in between opening and closing of b:if
b:if cond=’data:blog.url = ="http://yourblogurl.blogspot.com"’ meta content=’blog description’ name=’description’
Your Meta tag of the blog also specifies keywords of your blog. The keyword in the Meta tag tells the search engines about what your blog is. Include the following code in between opening and closing of b:if
b:if cond=’data:blog.url = ="http://yourblogurl.blogspot.com"’ meta content=’blog keywords’ name=’keywords’
After performing on page optimization, it is important to generate back links to your blog. Generating back links will drive much traffic to your blog. Do the following steps to generate back links.
Add your blog to blog directories and RSS directories
Frequently update your blog and use pinging service to ping social networking and social bookmarking sites. Comments should be open but delete unrelated or spam comments. Doing above will generate traffic to your web page.
