Blogger is really one of the best blogging platforms available in the industry. Even though there are many free website builders like Weebly and Wix, Blogger is the most popular among them. Wordpress is the best platform of all, But it doesn't come out for free. That's why, We recommend beginners to use Blogger as their CMS ( content management system ). You can see this blog post about Wordpress versus Blogger, So you can decide which platform to go with.

Blogspot Seo tips



Blogspot Seo tips



1. Format Blog post titles





By default, The blog post titles of Blogger should look like :

Blog Name | Post%title

For example, If you written a blog post about Blogspot seo tips, and your blog name is Myblog. The title should look like this in search engines :

Myblog- Blogger Seo tips

Actually, The blog title is consuming so much space in the SERP's page.

We all know that, We should keep our blog post titles below than 65 characters. But in the first case, The blog title is already consuming 10 characters and If you are targeting a long tail keyword, It is almost impossible to show up the full long tail keyword in search engines.

To resolve this issue, We should use format post title code.

1. Go to template > Edit HTML

2. Search for the below code :

<title><data:blog.pagetitle/></title>

3. Replace the above code with the below code.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType==&quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.title/></title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/></title>
</b:if>


After replacing the code, your blog post titles should look like :

Your Blog post title- Your Blog Name



2. Meta tags




You can add a description to your blog homepage and blog posts to make Blogger seo friendly.

To add a meta description to your blog homepage :

1. Go to settings > search preferences

2. Click on edit on the description

3. Click on On, This will add a feature to add descriptions to your blog.



4. In a few words, Describe what your blog is about. Here, Few words refers to less than 120 characters.

To add meta descriptions to Blog post's :


1. Go to Posts and select a blog post to edit :

2. On the right sidebar of your blog post editing section, Click on Search Description

Post meta description


3. Write a description about your blog post and never forget to add your focus keyword in the meta description to make it more powerful for search engines.



3. Robots.txt



One of the main and most important Blogspot seo tips. Because, every blog needs a Robots.txt file to avoid indexing of a blog from bad search bots.


A robots.txt file is a file which contains information regarding allow or block a specific search engine to index our blog. Don't worry, you don't need to touch a single piece of code to add a robots.txt file to your blog. Here is a tutorial to add robots.txt file to your blog :


1. Go to settings > Search preferences

2. Click on edit on the robots.txt file which is located at the bottom the page.

3. Click on On

4. Go to a good robots.txt generator which can easily generate a robots file for your blog. Copy the text generated from the robots.txt generator.

Robots.txt For Blogspot


5. Paste it in the robots.txt section of your blog


4.Permalink optimization



We all know that optimization of permalinks is also a main part of On-page seo. Blogger's should take care of permalinks to rank higher on Google.

To optimize permalinks
:

1. Go to post Editor

2. While writing a new post, You can see a label called permalink in the right toolbar section



3. Click on permalink and edit the permalink to optimize it for search engines.

If you don't know, How to optimize permalinks, you should read my blog post on How to optimize permalinks for more traffic.


5.Sitemap's



A sitemap is an XML file which contains the URL'S of all your blog posts. Your robots.txt contains the URL of your sitemap file. When a bot visits your blog, It will check out whether it is allowed or not by robots.txt and then it makes a decision whether to crawl your blog or not. If your robots.txt allows the bot to crawl your site, it will directly go to the sitemap of your blog and then gets the links of your blog posts and index them, If the blog post has no quality issues.

I am talking about these things, Because it is all about a sitemap file. If your blog contains no sitemap file, It would affect the indexing of your blog.


By default, Your blog comes with a sitemap file. So there is no need of extra configuration for your sitemap file. This is one of the Blogspot seo tips which comes by default and doesn't need any configuration.


6.Redirect Broken links



Blogger, by default, comes with a broken link redirector which gives you access to redirect all the broken links easily. This will make your blogger blog seo friendly and will improve your blog rankings and will further help in proper indexing of our blog's.

You can redirect broken links with this simple tutorial :

1. Go to settings > search preferences

2. Click on custom redirects

3. Click on add a new redirect



4. Paste your broken link URL in the first box.

5. Paste the URL which you want to show instead of the broken link.



7,Alt tags




You can optimize your blog images for search engines by adding an alt tag.

With Blogger, you can add alt tag to an image easily. All you need to do is click on a image and click on properties. A popup box appears asking you to input an alt tag.

Add alt tag for Blogger


Type a keyword about the images and the alt tag is added to your image. For example, If your image is about " Blogspot Seo tips ". You should input it as the alt tag.


Conclusion



These are the most important Blogspot Seo tips from our side. I already added all the above aspects to my blog and made by blog optimized for search engines like Google.

It is better to write an unique title, if you wanna attract your friends. For example, we will never read a blog post which have a name like " Scientists found a new asteriod ". Because, no one is willing to learn about rocket science or space in social networks. Social networks are just for a time-pass for some people. For those people, you should write a title like, " Our earth is going to blast on 18 feb because of this asteriod. This starts an anxiety in the minds of people. They cannot stop them clicking on your blog post. Thus, you can drive more traffic to your newly started blog with the help of social networks



Asking your friends to read

Branding : Have you ever seen a Shopping site or a service blog with a sub-domain like shopping.blogspot.com . According to me, you have never watched any branded blog with a sub-domain. This is because, Setting up a custom domain gives you some branding and people start liking you and your blog.

Seo : A custom domain gives you some more power to reach the first page of Google easily. Actually, it is almost impossible to rank on first page with a Sub-domain.

At the same time, With a custom domain, You can get backlinks easily. Because no one likes to give a link to Blogspot blog with a sub-domain where as they give links to Blogs with custom domain

Bluehost VS Hostgator Affiliate Program : Which One Is Good ?

Bluehost vs Hostgator Affiliate program, These are the two best affiliate programs in the industry. A long time rivalry is going on between these two hosting affiliate programs.

In this blog post, we compare the two best affiliate programs. You will learn both advantages and disadvantages of two programs.

Webhosting affiliate programs act as one of the best and high paying Adsense alternative for small bloggers. We can make a huge amount of money with affiliate programs. Affiliate programs use CPS ( Cost Per Sale ) to pay for its affiliates. That means you can't get paid for views or Clicks.

 Let's do a simple math on comparing Adsense and Affiliate Marketing :
       
                                 Affiliate marketing

You got 10 clicks with Affiliate Marketing a day. You'll make $0. I mean you'll have to go empty handed.

                                   Adsense

You got 10 clicks a day on Adsense ads. If the CPC is $1, You will make $10 per day. So, if you are getting more clicks, Adsense is best for you.

                                 Otherwise :

You got 1 sale a day with affiliate marketing. The program offers you $65 per sale and you made $65 in a day.

With Adsense, You got one sale through your ad. But you cannot make anything, All you get is the CPC for one click.

That's why, if you use some tricks and have some experience, you can make huge amount of money.

According to me, you learned the differences between Adsense and affiliate Marketing. Now it is the time to check out the two best affiliate programs of the industry. Let's see our comparison of Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program and we will conclude that which one you must join.

Bluehost vs Hostgator Affiliate program




Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program



Signup and approval



Both Hostgator and Bluehost gives you a free signup and you don't need to pay anything to join these affiliate programs.

Hostgator affiliate program is based on Impact Radius. This takes 24-48 hours to get an approval from Hostgator Affiliate Program. Bluehost affiliate program also takes some time to approve your blog.

Tax Forms




Both Hostgator and Bluehost needs to submit a tax form before getting payout to your paypal account.

Hostgator asks you to submit your PAN card while signing up and this is one of the huge disadvantage for minors like me. That's why, we never gave it a try.

Bluehost never asks you for PAN or other forms while signing up. But after you get an approval from their affiliate program, you must submit your tax information to them. If you don't submit tax information, You won't get paid. Filling up Tax information is hard for beginners.

Here Harsh Agarwal from ShoutMeLoud written a tutorial about filling Bluehost affiliate tax form. You can read it and fill the form.


Cost per Referral



When it comes to cost, Both Bluehost and Hostgator have different terms. Here is the information about Cost per Referral :

Bluehost pays you $65 per referral and if you keep increasing the sales per month to 15-20, you will get $120 per sale easily. According to me, this is the highest rate of the webhosting affiliate programs.


Hostgator cost would be like :

09- $75 ( Refer 9 people a month and get $75 per sale )

11- $100 ( Refer 11 people a month and get $100 per sale )

21- $125 ( Refer 21 people a month and make a huge amount of $125 per sale )

In Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program, When it comes to Cost per sale, Bluehost is the winner. Bluehost pays you an exact rate of $65per referral and more your refer more you will make.

Special Promotion coupons



Both Bluehost and Hostgator gives you access to special discounts. For example, in the month of January, They gives you a Republic sale, It may give 20% off on webhosting. Both Hostgator and Bluehost send you a reminder through Mail and you can attract more referrals by showing Discounts through your affiliate links.


Custom coupons   :

If you want a custom coupon, Means more discount giving coupon, You need to contact Bluehost Or Hostgator and they will send you the coupon, if you are eligible to their respective terms and conditions.

Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program on Coupons, Both of them are winners.



Payouts



The minimum Payout of Bluehost is $100 and you can withdraw your payments through Paypal, Bank wire etc.

The minimum payout of Hostgator is $100 and get paid via Paypal and Bank transfer etc.

So, in Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program, Both of them are winners, when it comes to Payouts.


Banners



Both Bluehost and Hostgator offers banners which contains your affiliate link and helps you to make more sales.

In Bluehost vs Hostgator Affiliate Program of Banners, Bluehost is the winner. Bluehost offers banners in different sizes. All the banners comes with blue colour, which is considered the most amazing and attractive colour. This is the best advantage for Bluehost.

Hostgator provides banners. They are also amazing. But they aren't good when they are compared to Bluehost affiliate banners.

Conclusion



Now, Bluehost vs Hostgator affiliate program comparison is ended. It is the time to check out " which one is better ? " . According to me, go on with Bluehost affiliate program. I recommend you to join Bluehost affiliate program and make lot's of money.

Google is taking so much care of responsive blogs. Blogs with unresponsive themes are ranking lower because of the new algorithm which is based on responsiveness. Even though thousands of updates came, Blogger's commenting system is not responsive. But the issue is not with responsiveness. The issue with the commenting system. Because, the visitor who wanna comment on your blog, must have Google account. Google beleives that it will decrease the spammy comments.

Wordpress Vs Blogger: Which Is The Best Blogging Platform



Blogger and Wordpress are the long time rivals in the industry. Some bloggers like Harsh Agarwal recommend Wordpress ( He uses Wordpress in all of his blogs ) and some like Mustafa recommend Blogger ( because he was using it and got good success with it ) . After using both blogger and Wordpress i will conclude one thing on Wordpress vs blogger and also who is the winner in the competition. Let's see the blog article and find more about the two blog builders. 

Note: This post is written for Wordpress.org . Some people might confuse of wordpress.com and wordpress.org . 

wordpress vs blogger


Cost and Pricing



This is the first thing in the competition of wordpress vs blogger. Blogger is a free web publishing tool powered by Google. So they offer a blog for free. You don't need to pay a single penny for using them. 


Blogger gives you free hosting. It has an unlimited limit in storage and bandwidth. Frankly not unlimited because nothing is unlimited in our world. But they provide the hosting in the required amount for you and it will never ends. 

You don't need to worry about a domain name. They will give you a free domain name like :

Yourblog.blogspot.com

Even though these domains won't look professional, it would be good for a beginner like me. 

Whereas wordpress is not free. Wordpress don't charge anything for providing their services, but they won't provide free hosting an domain like blogger.

You will need to buy hosting in order to use wordpress. There are many hosting providers. But don't a mistake while selecting hosting. Just listen and trust us, Go with inmotion hosting. They will provide unlimited hosting and a free domain name for a year which is very helpful for small bloggers. 



In order to use wordpress, you will need another thing. That is domain name. If you select inmotion there is no need of it for 1 year. But if you are willing to take hosting from other provider, you will need to buy a domain name seperately. What we recommend is Godaddy and NameCheap and Shoutmydomain. Because they will provide best rates and support. If you are a student, don't think about Wordpress vs blogger. Because you will find both are useful. We recommend you to go with blogger and then migrate.

Winner: Blogger

Also Read: Best free hosting providers with a domain name

Templates

 

Visitors only love professional sexy templates. If a theme or template is buggy, they will just get out of that blog. So templates matter more in blogging. So let's see the head to head Wordpress vs Blogger Templates

Blogger is a blog which uses XHTML and HTML languages for templates. As it is easy to code Html, there are many worst templates out there for blogger. We may face some difficulties to select a best and class blogger template. Here are some resources to find best blogger templates

Goyaabi templates

Wordpress uses the latest language PHP for powering their blogs. As php is very tough when compared to HTML, there are very low amount of themes available for wordpress ( not low but 70% of them are paid ). Themes of wordpress are outstanding and good professional looking. So you can find some best templates very easily without spending too much time, but you will have to spend some money.In wordpress vs blogger comparision of templates, we found the winner.

Winner: The professional Wordpress


Seo



This is a very important thing in this comparsion of wordpress vs blogger. Because we must build Seo optimized blogs to recieve higher traffic, Good status etc. Bloggers must write Seo optimized content to rank higher. But you need some support to do better in Seo, Right. The one which provides better Seo opportunities will be given the first priority. This is going to be an important thing in this post. Because every blogger must think about Seo and must take care of their blog's Seo to get food amount of traffic from search engines like Google.

When it comes to Seo, blogger must get down for sometime. Even though blogger is powered by Google, it can only rank in that. To prove this, just go to Yahoo or Bing and search for something. There you will find that 90% of blogs that ranking higher in yahoo are powered by Wordpress. But blogger can take advantage of Google. With a blogger blog, you can easily rank, if you have some good content only in Google. 
Blogger lacks many advanced Seo features which are essential for the journey of blogging. But don't worry, they will soon find a way for this. I am thinking that Google may update blogger again for some better Seo.


But when it comes to Wordpress, This is a major thing. Because the blogs which are powered by Wordpress can rank higher than our blogspot blogs. Just think, Go to google and search for something and you will find the exact meaning for my words. Wordpress offers many advanced Seo features with the help of plugins like Yoast and others. At the same time the interlinking system of Wordpress is better than blogger. Because it can link with the help of keywords. So it would be very easy for bloggers. But not only in Interlinking, there are many other Seo features available for Wordpress

Winner: In Google: Both
        In all search engines : Wp

Plugins






Plugins help the bloggers in many things. Plugins help us to avoid writing the bloody Coding which is a irritation for young bloggers like me. In this wordpress vs blogger comparision, this is also an important section for wordpress

Hey guys, if your friend is using blogspot as his blogging platform, just go near to him and told him that blogger has added plugins. Look at the reaction, you will feel funny. Because Blogger don't have a single plugin. If you want to add a small and simle alexa rank widget, you need to add code to your blogger template. So what i think is don't speak more when it comes to plugins espicially if you are a blogspot user


With wordpress, you can install thousands of plugins from the plugin installation store. But you will find many crapy and buggy plugins which irritates you by slowing down your blog. So the usage of plugins must be limited . Only download plugins which are used by most fellow bloggers. For example, Yoast seo is a popular plugin. Without any confusion, you can go with that. Because it is widely used. In plugins wordpress is the undefeated streak.

Winner : Wordpress


Conclusion



In this competition of Wordpress vs Blogger, it is very easy to declare the winner. It is none other than Wordpress. But if you are new to the blogosphere, juat go with blogger which offers you a free domain and hosting. If you are willing to pay, go with wordpress. If you are not willing to pay for Hosting, fo with blogger. So let me know whicg platform you use and which one you would like to vote. Just comment and support your favourite blogging platform
