2. Keyword Density For Google BlogSpot SEO.
The next BlogSpot SEO tip is based on On-Page SEO Optimization, it’s the Keyword density which is another important aspect of ranking.
You should not overload your keywords. Remember, less use and overuse of keywords both can seriously hurt your BlogSpot SEO in the long run. Search Engines will consider you spam.
According to Yoast (king of SEO), the WordPress plugin stated that the ideal keyword density should be 5%.
For instance, if you write 100 words, your keyword should appear 5 times in the post. Look, never keep your keyword density low, and also don’t overdo it.
But I will recommend keeping your keyword density between 4% to 5%.
Remember, don’t stuff keywords to manipulate search engines. After completing your article, analyze your keywords density.
Later, if you are lacking the ideal keyword density, extend your content without disturbing the readability and user experience.
Since readability and user experience are the ranking factors for Google.
3. Labeling Your Google Blogger’s Post.
As you add tags to your posts in WordPress here in Google Blogger, you can add labels to your posts. When you add labels in Google Blogger because it is considered keywords.
Thus, labels add up to your keyword density. So make sure you give proper labels to your article. Labels should be wider rather than putting into a single thin category.
Labels have a visible effect on related post widgets in Blogger. If you tag various posts with the same labels, it would affect the structure of your posts in related posts.
4. Appealing Title Equals Effective Google BlogSpot SEO.
Keep your headlines catchy, as the headline or the title is the second impression. Second impression? Yup!
Do you know what’s the first thing that the audience sees and decides whether to read the article or not?
The first is the featured image and the second is the title or the headline. Hence, you should be focusing on the title to the headline of your post.
If you want to learn to make attractive titles, go and grab some of the magazines from bookstores. You see, the titles of the articles are appealing, like “Secrets to shed 15 pounds within a week.”
That’s crazy, right?
But people’s curiosity ends up buying that magazine. The titles are so attractive that it attracts an audience like a magnet.
Bonus Tip: To make your title SEO-friendly, follow the steps.
Go to Blogger edit HTML > find out code title><data:blog.pagetitle/></title> and replace it with
<b:if cond= ‘data:blog.pageType == "index"'>
Now each of your individual pages will have the post title itself. Now that’s the tip that will make your life easier, right?

5. Optimize Images For Google Blogger SEO.
Do you know what’s the first thing that increases your website load time and decreases your ranking and affects your SEO?
Those are images that you upload to your posts!
In short, to optimize images for Blogger SEO you need to set the alt tags for all your images. I have explained in the video “how to set the alt tag for images.”
If you were on WordPress, you could have easily done it using plugins, but in Google Blogger, you have to do it yourself. Add alt tags manually after uploading your images.
6. Give Meta Tags.
Meta tags are the HTML tags that are used by the search engines to understand the content of your post.
Like the title, description, and other details embedded in the URL. As crawlers or bots understand your content using meta tags. Thus, write a good title, description, and footer text.
The title, footer, and description play a great impact on your Google Blogger SEO.
Hence, if you are targeting highly competitive keywords, make sure you include those in the title, description, and footer text.
7. Give Your Links The HTML Attribution.
Do-follow and No-follow are the HTML attribution that is given to the hyperlinks to instruct search engine crawlers whether to crawl and follow a particular URL or not.
Do-follow means you are instructing crawlers like Googlebot to crawl the site via your given URL. No-follow means you are instructing crawlers not to crawl the site via your given URL.
You can select the HTML section of the post window and add rel=”nofollow” attribution after your outbound URL to block crawlers from reading the URL.
Moving on to the last but not the least tip.
