                     Search Engine Optimization for Blogger / Blogspot Blogs – Beginners Guide
STEP 1 – BLOG TITLE TAGS
By default, Blogger titles are not well optimized. Specially if you have long Blog
name. In this e-book i will take my domain and my blogger title.

Default Blogger Title Tag:

Bash Bosh – POST NAME FROM BASH BOSH

After Optimization of Title Tag:
POST NAME FROM BASH BOSH ~ Bash Bosh

Note: Title tags are displayed on search engine result pages and they are visible
on your Browser title bar.

To change Title tags in your Blogger powered blog, you will need to login into
your Blogger account and go to Layout>Edit HTML (displayed on below
picture):




                                                  Copyright 2008 – bash-bosh.blogsport.com

                    Search Engine Optimization for Blogger / Blogspot Blogs – Beginners Guide
In Editing field scroll little and find <TITLE><DATA:BLOG.PAGETITLE/></TITLE> tag. Select all
tag and Copy-Paste following code instead:


      <B:IF COND='DATA:BLOG.PAGE TYPE == "ITEM"'>
      <B:SECTION ID='TITLETAG'>
      <B:WIDGET ID='BLOG2' LOCKED ='FALSE ' TITLE='BLOG POSTS' TYPE='BLOG'>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='COMMENTS' VAR='POST'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='POSTQ UICKEDIT' VAR='POST'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='MAIN' VAR='TOP'><TITLE><B:LOOP VALUES='DATA:POSTS'
      VAR=' POST'><B: INCLUDE DATA=' POST ' NAME =' POST'/></ B: LOOP> ~
      <DATA:BLOG.TITLE/></TITLE></B:INCLUDABLE>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='BACKLINKDELETE ICON' VAR='BACKLINK'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='FEEDLINKSBODY' VAR='LINKS'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='BACKLINKS' VAR='POST'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='STATUS-MESSAGE'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='FEEDLINKS'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='NEXTPREV'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='COMMENTDELETE ICON' VAR='COMMENT'/>
      <B:INCLUDABLE ID='POST' VAR='POST'><DATA:POST.TITLE/></B:INCLUDABLE>
      </B:WIDGET>
      </B:SECTION>
      <B:ELSE />
      <TITLE><DATA:BLOG.PAGETITLE/></TITLE>
      </B:IF>




After that, click on Save Template button. That's it! Your title tags will be much
more optimized:

                       Search Engine Optimization for Blogger / Blogspot Blogs – Beginners Guide
STEP 2 – KEYWORD META TAGS
Keywords are very necessary for better SEO of your blog. By default, Blogger
doesn't have Keyword tags included. Very un-professional and definitely not
good for search engines.

Keyword tags helps search engine to get visitor to your site. But to do this step
right, you will need to know which keywords you should attach on your site.
You need to select right keywords, related to your blog purpose.

For examlpe, if you have blog mostly about free games or software, you should
include following tags on it (separated with ,):
free software, free games, downloads, download game, freeware soft, applications, games for free,
online gaming, software reviews

Of course, you don't need to import exact keywords on your blog. Above tags
are displayed like example.

There are many services that helps you to get right and best keywords for your
site. I recommend you to try Overture, and get best possible keywords that are
related to your blog content.

To insert keyword meta tags on your site, you will need to place following code
into Edit HTML area somewhere below opened <HEAD> tag.

Note: Do not place tag below closed </HEAD> tag.
<META CONTENT='YOUR KEYWORDS' NAME='KEYWORDS'/>

Replace YOUR KEYWORDS with your keywords. Separated with comma (,).
Showed like below keyword example.




                                                       Copyright 2008 – bash-bosh.blogsport.com

                        Search Engine Optimization for Blogger / Blogspot Blogs – Beginners Guide
After you done this, save your template and your work for keywords is done!
Now, they will be displayed and attached with your site contents:




Note: DO NOT insert too many keywords in your tag. Recommended leight is
20-25 keywords max.

STEP 3 – WINDOWS LIVE WRITER
Windows Live Writer is software from new Microsoft software pack called
Windows Live Suite. It provides many useful features for all bloggers including
professionals and beginners. It's really easy to use, with very nice "MSN like"
style, with nice elements and all necessary tools provided. Windows Live Writer
is completely free software which can save you a lot of time. Fully supports
Blogger accounts.

It's really impressive how this great tool works. When you setup your account,
you will be able to add many things on your blog like:

Pictures - Great tool with some unique features like automatic effects or
watermark inclusion, image alt tags, shadows, position and more.

Tables - Insert tables easily in your weblog, without using any other external
applications or services.

Maps - Integrate maps locations in your blog. Very easy and useful feature.
Powered by Microsoft Virtual Earth application.

Tags - Easily insert tags for your blog posts. Supports tags from Technorati,
LiveJournal, Flickr, Del.icio.us, ice rocket, 43 things and more.

Insert Video - Easily upload or insert video to your weblog using this function.
Great tool for blogs with lot video integrated.

Insert Hyperlink - Of course you can add links with this nice tool. Advanced
options are available also. So everything you need is here.

One of the great features is that you can preview your post within your blog
template, without any database mistakes and you can easily do that even
offline. Really great way to see how everything will look in the future. It's like
"live" but offline function, really great addition for this kind of software.

                     Search Engine Optimization for Blogger / Blogspot Blogs – Beginners Guide
STEP 4 – PINGING (UPDATING) SERVICES
This is also very useful factor for best SEO results of your blog. By default,
Blogger doesn't support self-pinging service. That's why you need to download
Windows Live Writer from above step.

Try to use Windows Live Writer when you write posts on your blog. It's much
better and can save you much more time than writing in Blogger default
WYSIWYG integrated Editor.

Each time you publish post via WLW, you can ping other services that you have
updated your post in real time. By this way, you will speed up search engine
submissions on search engines. Also this service can give you better SERP
(Search Engine Result Page) positions.

Open Windows Live Writer and go to Tools > Options > Ping Servers. Check box
that you allow to ping servers and Copy – Paste following URL's in available
form:


    http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping
    http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2
    http://1470.net/api/ping
    http://api.feedster.com/ping
    http://api.moreover.com/RPC2
    http://api.moreover.com/ping
    http://api.my.yahoo.com/RPC2
    http://api.my.yahoo.com/rss/ping
    http://bblog.com/ping.php
    http://bitacoras.net/ping

                                                          Copyright 2008 – bash-bosh.blogsport.com

                            Search Engine Optimization for Blogger / Blogspot Blogs – Beginners Guide
From now on, every time you publish post on your blog by Windows Live
Writer, you will automaticly ping all above services and announce them that
something is changed on your blog.




STEP 5 – GOOGLE and YAHOO SITEMAP SUBMISSION
This step is also very useful and i recommend you to do this last step which
helps your blog to get crawled more with this little trick. Blogger doesn't allow
to upload files on their servers. Because of that you will not be able to upload
and publish original Sitemap generated on internet.

But i can help you with this little trick which you can do with your RSS link.
Submit link from your original RSS XML file on these services and they will track
changes on it daily, just like when you upload original sitemap file.

Your RSS XML URL is like:

http://your-blog.blogspot.com/rss.xml



                                                  Copyright 2008 – bash-bosh.blogsport.com

                    Search Engine Optimization for Blogger / Blogspot Blogs – Beginners Guide
Then all you need is to add above address (change your-blog with your blogger
blog name) on Google Webmaster Center and Yahoo Site Explorer.

From now your contents will be much better with communication with Search
Engines. Your site will be crawled regularly and daily.

Note: You need to have free accounts from both services. Gmail and Yahoo!
Email addresses also works!
