BlogSpot Advanced SEO Preference Robots.txt, Redirection, Meta Tag


BlogSpot Advanced SEO Preference Robots.txt, Redirection, Meta Tag

Today, seems to be a happy Blogger day for BlogSpot user as BlogSpot added some of the advanced SEO options for Blogger blogs. We will dive into all the new feature in details after a break but let me start with some of the out of the topic talk.

When ever we pitch about BlogSpot Vs. WordPress, we always give WordPress an edge in terms of SEO. By adding new SEO features in BlogSpot, Google have fixed the SEO difference by a great extent. Though, this is not going to be “The changes”, which will make me suggest you to stick to BlogSpot for professional Blogging. But, all the new changes are certainly deserve an applause as after years, BlogSpot bloggers got much needed SEO love.

So, lets not waste our time and learn about all new features and how to use it.

How to Enable BlogSpot Advanced SEO settings?
Login to your Blogger dashboard and under settings > search preference you will find all the new SEO options which is added by Blogger team. You have to enable all the settings one by one, and my suggestion is to read this guide seriously else a wrong settings (BlogSpot Robots.txt), may lead to complete de-indexing of your blog.

I don’t meant to scare you, but all I’m saying is it’s time to get serious as Google wants to take SEO very seriously. Period!.

In this iteration, here are new SEO features added by Blogger team:

  • Description meta tag 
  • Custom 404 page message
  • Custom redirects (Redirect 404 pages to any page on your blog).
  • Custom robots.txt
  • Custom Robots header tags
  • No follow tag, open link in new tab
Lets Dive into World of BlogSpot Search preference settings:
Lets, look into all the feature one by one and my suggestion implement it on your blog for better search engine optimization of your Blogger blog.

Description Meta tags:

This is where you will be explaining what your blog is about. An informative description within 150 character will help readers to understand about your blog and will help you to get more click from search engine. Also, from SEO perspective, I would suggest you to use your main keyword here in BlogSpot meta tags description.

Make sure you explain about your blog within 150 characters, as search engine ignore characters after 150. Once you enable this feature and added meta tags, after search engine bot recrawl your site, search engine will show your meta description like this in search engine:

Custom 404 message:
A 404 page is usually a mistyped pages or a visitor land on a page, which doesn’t exceed. This custom 404 message will let you create custom HTML message, which you can display on your Blogger 404 pages. Now, it’s time for you to use your creativity and design something awesome.

Here is one example, HTML message which I have created and you can change the link and text to spice up your 404 page on BlogSpot.

Custom redirects:

This is very useful, when any 3rd party site linked to your site and added a link which doesn’t exist or if you remove a page and want to redirect the traffic. You can use Google Webmaster tool to find all such 404 pages and set the redirection. It might be little lengthy process, but in some cases it is very useful to tap the missing traffic and convert them into real traffic.

Nofollow/Open in new tab:

Before, I go into detail of this post, my suggestion is to read my post on Bounce rate and that will give you enough idea about why opening external links in new tab is important. Now, when ever you link to a site from post editor, it will give two new options : Add nofollow attribute and Open in new tab.

If word, nofollow sounds like a rocket science to you, read my post on why you need to add nofollow tag to a link. Earlier, we used to add nofollow link attribute using HTML, but this new one click link addition will make task very easier. Mmy suggestion use nofollow link attribute only when you have to link to irrelevant domains and pages which doesn’t add any value.

For example: use it, when you are writing about some anti-hacking trick and you have to link to hacking sites for giving examples.

Robots.txt for BlogSpot:
Well, this is one part of new BlogSpot SEO setup, that I want you to use it carefully. A wrong, settings may lead to deindexing of a big part of your site. A Robots.txt file is use to stop search engine bots from crawling the “Not so important” part of your blog. For example, Search pages, archive pages and so on.  If you are new to Robots.txt, this video by Google Engineer, Matt Cutts will give you enough basic info about BlogSpot robots.txt file:

In nutshell, I suggest you to use Robots.txt to point to your sitemap URL and control No-indexing by noindex tag in custom robots meta tags. For more information, read official page on BlogSpot robots.txt. I will cover a detailed info on Blogger robots.txt in coming days.

Custom robots header tags:

One much needed feature for SEO of your BlogSpot blog, though it looks like little confusing but this guide from Google will again try to explain everything in simple words.

Here is an image, which explains all the directives under Blogger custom Robots header tag:

Robots meta tag and description is also available on single post, which makes it more search engine friendly. Specially, I liked the idea of Unavailable_after directive, which will help you to automatically deindex news post which usually expires after some time.

Well, my suggestion for every BlogSpot blogger is to get a custom domain and enjoy the power of new BlogSpot SEO and drive more traffic to your blog post. If you have any query regarding above Blogger new search preference option, ask via comment.  If you find this post useful, don’t forget to share and +1 this post.

How to create contact page in Blogger  

Adding contact form in a blog is absolutely necessary and by doing so you are encouraging your blog visitors to be social. By adding a contact form, visitors will have the opportunity to speak up their mind. So instead of using your blogs comment section, people will contact with you more personally using these contact forms. Here we will see how to create contact page in Blogger that is we will add a simple contact form in contact page.

You have well created a contact us page in Blogger, but what we need is to add a spam free contact form. In wordpress we can manage multiple forms using these two great plugins contact form 7 & Gravity forms. Now we are going to create a contact form for Blogger using Google docs where you can manage multiple forms. Believe; it’s a simple, powerful, spam free contact form for your blog and it has more options.

Benefits of Google docs contact form

  • You can create as many contact forms.
  • You can view all your responses in a separate spreadsheet.
  • Create and easily embed the contact form to any pages in your blog.
  • You can add radio buttons, checkboxes and list in contact form.

How to create contact form for Blogger Go to Google Drive and login using your Blogger account. Now at the top left corner click create form and you will see different templates to choose from. Better choose the default template and name the title as “Contact Form”.

Now as of basic contact form you will have to create three fields that is name, email and message field. After selecting the template you will see three options that is question title, help text and question type.

Your Name

Now to add a name field select “text” in question type and name the question title as “your name”. If you want to help your readers with more info then you can add help text. Now check this field as required question, so that users will not be able to leave a message with this field blank. Click done.

Your Email

You have just added the name field and to add an email field select “text” in question type. Now name the question title as “Your Email” and mark this question as required. This is an email field and so users have to only enter their email address and not a normal text. In order to force them to enter their email address just select date validation, text and email address as you see in the image.

If you wish to add phone number or URL field then the process is same what you did above. For number drop down date validation, select number and select greater or less than values. For URL value drop down date validation, select text and then select URL.

Your Message

Now for the message field select paragraph text, mark the field as required and name the field as “your message”. Now drop down date validation, select text and set the minimum character count as 100. By doing so, your users will leave a long detailed message.

Additional Spam protection – Click Add item and select check box and mark it as required question and name it as “Human Verification”. In option field enter “Confirm that you are a Human and not robot!” and click done 

You have now created your contact form and to preview this click “view live form” at the top. 

Confirmation Settings You will have three options in confirmation page. You can allow users to submit another response. You can offer users to edit their response after submitting. You can show results of this form to all responders. Better choose none and click send form. 

When you click send form a popup window opens, now click embed and grab the iFrame code. 

How to create contact page in Blogger
Login to your Blogger dashboard and create a new page and name it as contact us page. If you wish, then add additional details to your visitors before the contact form and don’t fail to disable comments for that page. Now paste the embed code in HTML view and publish it.

Now you have a simple, yet powerful contact form in your Blogger contact page. Edit iFrame width and height to perfectly fit your blog.

Some SEO Things Every Blog Should Have


Some SEO Things Every Blog Should Have

In today’s blogging world, we have seen many blogs, and both new and old bloggers are very busy improving the visibility of their blogs on search engines so that they can get more organic traffic through SEO. Some of them are using premium and some are using free SEO plugin for this. Some of them are using combinations of plugins to improve their website SEO and some of them are building backlinks.

Yes, we all agree with this that these are also  essential parts of building a blog but they are of no use until your blog has good content, a good design and other basic things.
Doing search engine optimization for your blog is a little time consuming and it is a step by step process, you just have to focus on your blog with all dedication. Lots of bloggers achieve their goals in terms of traffic but they may not be giving enough attention to other parts of their website or blog so to speak. So, today we are going to tell you some of the buildings blocks of a blog which are essential to our sites.

1. Author Biography
Author biography is must because most readers check the author bio after reading the content. We have seen many websites in which there is no gravatar image as well as no author bio. Having an author bio is a must to get the author popularity in Search Engine as well as in the blogging world. Google Authorship must also be implemented.

2. Archives
Many people like to see the archives of the blog first before reading the content. I also do so because some people analyze the website first trying to determine when the website wass started, how many posts got published in the previous month and how many posts the site turns out in a week. By seeing the archives, we can see the performance of a website and a lot of readers want to see this.

3. Footer
The Footer is also one of the main things for a blog. For a professional looking blog, we can mention certain of things like latest post, top comments, most visited post, about author box, Alexa Rank widgets etc.

4. Search Box
Search box helps your visitors to search the content on your site for that which they are looking for. You can place search box either in header of the site or at the top-right corner where it is clearly visible.
We recommend you to place the search box at the top.

5. About me (Page)
This page  is definitely visited by many your readers and bloggers like you. We even visit the about me page to know the background of a site and the owner. This page helps to inspire the other bloggers and it helps your readers to know you better. It’s important to create a good about me page by sharing your views regarding your life and your website.

6. Contact Me (page)
This is also one of the important page which is required in the website. Sometimes, a reader wants to give you a suggestion or an advertiser wants to publish his or her ads on your website and the absence of an about page clearly states you don’t want to be contacted. Apart from having your email on this page, having a contact form on there is advised.

7. RSS feed
Some of your readers like your content and want to know about the most recent updates so they can subscribe to it. For this reason, RSS Feed is must.

8. Share buttons
Many times, readers like your content and they just want to share it. For this reason, sharing buttons after each post is a must. It can’t be disputed that social media brings lots of traffic to a website. This is one of the best way you can promote your business or blog.
Also, people should be able to connect with your on social networks and a Facebook like box with a Twitter follow button is important.

9. Readable Fonts
The font format used for articles on your blog must be readable. Don’t use too much fancy type fonts, it shouldn’t be too small, it must be big and readable but not ridiculously large. Moderation is the keyword.

10. Related posts
What do you expect readers to do when they finish reading an article? Close the tab? No, there should be related posts below each post as this keeps your readers engaged on your blog and reduce bounce rate.

We hope that you like our article on some SEO things must for every blog. Don’t forget to leave your comments and suggestions below.

How Anchor Text Increase Google Search Rankings


How Anchor Text Increase Google Search Rankings

f you’ve been in the game for the past couple of years you have probably noticed a lot of talk about Google updates and how everyone’s website is being kicked out of Google, and the sky is falling. Although not everyone has been effected directly from some of the updates, but I am an active member of a few online marketing forums and some people are having some serious concerns.

Chances are if you own multiple websites or have in the past year you might have noticed at least 1 of your websites rankings going all over the place. It’s completely normal for a website or blog to bounce around and traffic numbers will vary, but I’m talking about getting thousands of visitors per day, then changing to maybe a hundred…or less. For some people this is a serious concern, and for others they have been lucky enough to either benefit or not be affected at all.

Artificial Link Building

I believe that one of the big reasons why these sites are ranking in the bottom of the serps is because of their anchor text. The content is great usually, but the link building is fake. A lot of people who build links to their websites use the same old anchors over and over again, if you actually think about it, its pretty easy to spot when someone is trying to gain the system. Let’s face it, Google is not stupid, they know that you use Ezine articles to build links to rank for your Fitness blog, or they know that those single in-content links from article directories are made by you. I feel that the general approach to ranking a website needs to be changed, at least when it comes to anchor text.

If you are artificially building links to your site and spamming the same anchors over and over again then you will probably get hit, or have already been hit. Gone are the ways of artificial link building, and now we need to get back to the natural process.

Creating a Natural Link Structure to Your Site

In order to create a natural link structure to our blogs we need to focus on what naturally happens in the timeline of a website. So when a site is first made, it usually has little content, no links, and barely any visitors. This is normal and every blogs begins this way. So what happens next? It starts to get a few links, maybe some social activity, some visits from twitter, facebook, and you start writing your blog posts of course.
A month later and a little bit more links come, more visitors, different types of links will start building. Two months later you might start getting some authority links, and traffic will be increasing even more. The whole point I’m trying to make here is that a site grows exponentially overtime. This is the natural way a site will grow in the serps, and Google knows that. Sending 15Ezine article links to your blog in the first month is not natural, in-fact I would maybe send 1 or 2.

How Do We Naturally Vary Our Anchor Text?

Creating a naturally link structure is very far out from what most SEO specialists will recommend, but you know what? It works. If you want to rank for the term “Blogging For Money”, you only need 1-3 links with that anchor text and a few variations. The rest will be completely random. You want to be building links that normal “bloggers” would do. For example:

  • Click Here
  • This Blog
  • www.(blogurl).com
  • (name of blog)
  • Your name
  • Long-tail variation of your main keyword

These are all things normal bloggers will do, and when people artificially try to rank a website they forget that. You need to build these kinds of links if you want your blog to still be alive in a year or two. If it means it takes longer to rank, so be it, it’s the long term that’s really important.
Social Links Are Important Too

The last thing I really want to touch up on is the importance of social links. It’s best to make a twitter account, a Facebook page, and a Google plus account for your blog. Promote your stuff and get active with others. This is a very effective way to get traffic, get readers, promote, and get natural links to your blog. I’ve just recently being getting into Google Plus and it’s doing wonders for my business, it is a GREAT promotional tool.

When Google sees that other people like, and link to your stuff it’s a veryyyy good sign.

A Final Word
For those of you who are used to the traditional way of link building you don’t need to change everything at once. Just slowly start incorporation social links, using naturally anchor texts, and you should be fine. If you do this you will be years ahead of the competition.

Pligg A Social Networking Content Management System


Pligg A Social Networking Content Management System

What is Pligg? Don’t we use WordPress as the “default” Content Management System? Enough, you WordPress dreamers! The world outside WordPress is huge and you got to jump out of your favorite content management system so as to discover the rest of the virtual world. Today, we will break some shackles to travel outside our comfort zone. It is time to discover one Content Management System which has been doing rounds for quite some time: Pligg.

P.S. You will notice how by the end of the article I slowly drift into the favor of WordPress (even when I won’t mention this openly). After all, WordPress rocks!

So, What is Pligg?

I know, I ended up pushing all my energy into my introduction which resulted in the major question being left unanswered. So, let me bite my tongue and introduce you to the definition of Pligg.
Pligg is an Open source Social Networking Content Management System (CMS) Combining social bookmarking, blogging, and syndication and a democratic editorial system enables users to collaboratively submit and vote articles. It was influenced by the extremely popular English technology site Digg, where when a user submits a news article it is placed in the “upcoming” area until it gains sufficient votes to be promoted to the main page. – Wikipedia
The above definition of Pligg really wraps up everything that can be said about Pligg. While WordPress was solely launched as a CMS for blogging purposes, Pligg on the other hand was launched as a social networking Content Management System. It has been designed to handle multiple authors who can be registered users controlling the website’s content. Those who know Digg (almost all of us do) might have already figured out Pligg’s initial purpose. Although the uses of Pligg have evolved in recent years yet the voting system remains the backbone for Pligg.

Features of Pligg

There isn’t much about Pligg so I don’t want to push lot of useless content in this article. Pligg is still growing. Their Wikipedia Page isn’t complete yet! To give you an example - Pligg.in is a news site which nowhere deals with Pligg although it uses Pligg as its backend.

Let us go through the features of Pligg before we jump over to the Pligg Showcase:

  • Voting - Well, that is the obvious feature of Pligg so I do not need to discuss more of this. Although I will like to specify that Pligg also offers “5 star” voting system other than the Digg like voting system.
  • User Profiles - Pligg lets users create their own profiles thus giving them the much required personal feeling. One can view other profiles, add others as friends, check what others are voting for and a lot more.
  • Private Messaging - One can use the private messaging feature of Pligg for private communications.
  • Groups - Like minded people can create groups where they can share stuff that will be appreciated by all.
  • Module System - Like WordPress Plugins feature, Pligg has Module System which can be utilized by users to add extra features to their Pligg based websites.
  • Smarty Templates - Website designed can be changed by using Smarty Templates which are more or less like WordPress templates. They won’t affect the backend of your website and will just change the front look of your Pligg based website.
  • Easy Upgrades - Like WordPress, Pligg offers automatic upgrades and easy installation features thus making it more user-friendly.
  • RSS Feeds – I guess I don’t need to explain this. Pligg offers its own RSS Feeds system which can be used by visitors of that particular website to keep themselves updated with latest updates from that Pligg based website.
  • Multilingual Support - Pligg supports multiple languages thus making it widely available for users from other countries. Also, you can join the Pligg Translator Group to help them add your country in Pligg if it isn’t already present. 

Suggestions for Pligg

Although Pligg seems to have some future, they still have a lot of room for improvement. The below suggestions are solely my thoughts and must not be misunderstood.

  • I am not sure why this exists but Pligg’s About Page has “Advertise Here” sections just above the footer. I mean why is a Content Management System looking for ads like a regular blog would? Also, they charge only $70 per month. Well, does this mean that they aren’t famous? Really, Pligg, remove these “Advertise Here” images right away.
  • Free up some of the modules. I was checking out the Pligg’s Pro section and there were modules that just amazed me. Don’t get me wrong. They didn’t amaze me due to their features. They did so because they were charging for modules that only offered basic functions. Like the Twitter Module is worth $23.99! I mean why would I spend that amount of money for Twitter integration. If Pligg wants to stand against the best CMS then they got to give away stuff for – FREE!
  • Expand yourself, please. Pligg, as a community, needs to start working in order to expand their reach. I have so many webmaster friends who know nothing about Pligg. Why is that? They are failing somewhere for sure. They must re-think their marketing strategy to improve their reach.
  • I have a lot more to tell them but I would rather give them time to improve. They still have a lot to learn and a long way to go.

The Showcase

As is the case usually, I cannot let you guys go away without an inspirational showcase of websites that run on Pligg. Believe me, there is lot of niche Digg like websites that have a stronghold in their regions. Here we go …
