The best Fixes for Blogger you should do today.
When I first started this blog on Blogger I just first thought I would type a few sentences and be done. Then the search engine would do the rest for me. However what I have found is that this is not optimized for Search Engine Results. So what I have had to do is change many things that would allow me to get better SEO results and a better user experience.
The things I did in no particular order and it helped with my overall experience. Finding these errors was easy as setting up webmaster tools. However correcting them was a bit more.
- Duplicate Meta Tags
- Duplicate Title Tags
- No Landing Page
- Duplicate Search Descriptions
- Comments and Page have same title or duplicate.
Duplicate Meta Tags
This will not hurt you appearing in the search engine however it does affect the overall experience you have. I used the tutorial found on this website to fix this error. It was an easy enough fix. CLICK HERE
Duplicate Title Tag
What happens with Blogger is they use the Blog Title in every post. So your posts in the search engines do not have an idea about what the post is about. What you need to do is reverse the two. So the post title appears first and your blog title appears second. It is an easy fix and should increase your overall position in the search results. It was an easy fix and a good tutorial can be found here. CLICK HERE
No Landing Page
No I found that the best thing is a landing page. I post my link to various forums and other places that allow my site to be seen. Yet people never got the sense of feel except the last post. Maybe that post does not interest them. However I have other posts that may interest them. So when they visit the home page I want them to have a selection of posts they can choose from. Not just the most recent article. Again this was a real easy fix and really helped me with page views. I used this tutorial and found it to be very easy to accomplish. CLICK HERE
Duplicate Search Descriptions
This occurs when each page does not have its own search description and uses the default search result for every page it is a very easy fix and you should fix this. It will give you a better overall search and address more key items when people seek you out. Again this is another very easy fix and will assist you and your overall experience. CLICK HERE This will also fix your comment page where it shows duplicate errors so it is a twofer in the fix column.
With these easy fixes you can can be up in the search results and gain more and more traffic. The sooner you start to optimize for search engines the better it becomes. Blogger is a great platform yet it still leaves room for improvement.
