Blogger introduced Permalink option to create custom URLs

84 Comments so far

Update: This feature has now been added to all blogs. You will find it on blogger.com also. Blogger Permalink settingsIts indeed one of the most awaited SEO development for all blogger users. Blogger users can now write custom URLs for their posts using Blogger in draft. You will now find a permalink option in post editor if you log into Blogger account using draft.blogger.com and not blogger.com. This option would let you create custom permalinks for your blogger posts. Permalink or "permanent link"  in layman terms is the URL that appears in your browser address bar. Previously blogger would automatically create a 35-40 Characters long permalink after you published a post and most often the keywords picked were not SEO friendly and made no sense but now you can create a custom URL with as many rich keywords as you want with complete control over the structure. I must tell you its one of the best features introduced after the Search Preferences which offered control over Meta Tags, redirects, and 404 error page. It gives you many benefits like more ranking power and better click through rates in SERPs.

Every big website has an icon or image associated with it. This is what makes the website unique and gives it its identity. Look at Facebook. It has the 'f' icon, which is immediately recognizable. Google has the 'g' icon, and so on. These icons are displayed on browser tabs right next to the page title, and are known as favicons. In essence, these favicons are a means of branding your blog. Every blog or website needs to have a brand. Without a brand, a blog has no credibility. It's a small, but essential step you need to take. In fact, it is one of the first steps you need to take when you start a blog or website.
