All About Basic Settings of Blogger Blog | Blogger Basics

Before you start learning about ‘Basic’ settings in blogger, you should be aware of the term ‘Search Engine Optimization’ also called SEO shortly.

 

Search Engine Optimization is nothing but optimizing your blog according to search engine guidelines to increase your blog’s visibility on search engine results page(SERP).

 

Setting up your blog

 

Ok! let’s start with the basic settings.

 

To get started with the Basic Settings, go to blog’s dashboard and navigate to Settings > Basic.

 

Basic

Title – Title is the name of your blog and you have already given it while creating a new blog.

 

Note: It is strongly recommended not to change the title of your blog so frequently(i.e., more than 2 times in an year). Frequent changes to title might not only confuse search engine algorithms but also confuses your readers. So do not cast away with amoebic changes.

Description – It tells you what your blog is about. It generally appears under the title on the blog. It is not the description that search engine takes as description but it only helps for your readers understand what your blog is about.

 

Privacy – Blogger gives you control to set your blog open for search engines to crawl or not.

 

list-on-search-engines

 

You can choose to list in or out your blog in search engine results as well as in Google blog listings.

Publishing

Blog Address – Blog address is the URL of your blog with which it is accessible through the web bowser. You have already chosen the URL while creating a new blog.

 

Note: It is recommended not to change your blog URL ever unless there is a dying need to do so. If the URL is changed, not only the search engine but also your readers would confuse and you may loose them permanently.

 

Permissions

Blog Authors –  You can add up to 100 authors for a blog. Also you can give administrator privileges to any number of authors under the limit.

 

permissions-blogger-basics

 

Blog Readers – You are blogging, that doesn’t mean your blog should be open to public to read. You can choose your own readers by invite or can limit its access to blog authors only.

This is all about Basic Settings. If I missed anything in it or you have any queries about it, please comment below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

How to Get Blogging Ideas While Watching Television

Excuse me for being such an blogging obsessive potato this time but I like to blog all times. I get ideas in the middle of the night, when eating, and watching television too. I know I am not the only person on this little planet who is passionate about writing something on their own authorized places and so I believe this article can help you out live on blog. I mean it, the ‘live’ word.

Everything runs out after sometime. Even blogging ideas run out sometimes. After writing too much, a blogger would naturally get exhausted and will search for more ideas to write.

I usually get creative ideas to blog while watching television and also a lot of research material for my next topic.

Television is a great source of ideas to blog, no matter on what niche you write about. Blogging while watching your favorite shows on TV is fun and productive too.

What kind of ideas to catch?

It is hard to blog while watching, because we are still humans, right? So don’t touch your computer while enjoying the show and note down the ideas during commercial breaks.

Fashion Blog Ideas – Room with television have always room of ideas for fashion bloggers. TV is a great source of ideas exploration for fashion bloggers. You can get ideas from the people who host the show and to the people who come in commercials. For fashion bloggers, TV is a Christmas box of chocolates.

Movie Blog Ideas – There is no need to tell about the movie-television relation. You can review the movies airing on television or write about the performances of the actors in it. You can write your expectations about the upcoming movies as well.

Family & Relations Blog Ideas – Do you like to write about family and relationships? do you conduct counseling sessions through your blog?

Television is the right place to explore human psychologies of famous and favorite stars and this can be helpful to give examples for your seekers as well.

Health Blog Ideas – The television  has also evolved and so exists the channels based on a niche. There available many health channels now on television and you can get as much topics as you can from them.

Not only these, you can also write about the medicines that are shown in commercial ads during breaks.

News Blog Ideas – If you are a news blogger, you have the feed right in front of your eyes. You may have to read several articles to write about a news topic when on internet but you can write while listening and watching it on the television.

Music Blog Ideas – Music channels are what I’d love to tune into while sleeping and relaxing in front of television.

You can update your blog with the information about new albums in the market and a TV can help you keep track of the trend.

Cooking Blog Ideas – I notice my mother and younger sister watching cooking shows on television once in a day.

If you can make the odor flew to the corner of the worlds through your blog, cooking channels and programs that show how to cook a recipe will surely give you a delicious topic to write about.

Devotional Blog ideas – There is no end for discussions about god and universe. Television can give more knowledge(I’d rather use it for ‘ideas’) to write about.

Science Blog Ideas – Tuning into NGC and Discovery is like shuffling the ball cage and picking out one. The channels like them give us as much knowledge as they give ideas with them. Next time you want to write about a science experiment and don’t have ideas, watch NGC for an hour.

Nature Blog Ideas – I was delighted to know recently that there are many nature bloggers who would like to write about nature and life in it. Channels like Animal Planet gives you as much natural inspiration as you want to write.

Business & Market Blog Ideas – Television shows assessing the markets and discussing the business strategies with the heads of the top companies will not only inspire you but also educate and let you jump on to another level of your research which is in turn motivates you to write.

Tech Blog Ideas – I never want to miss out the shows about gadgets in the market and their competition. Shows discussing about gadgets gives you key points to talk about them.

Also the commercial ads saying ‘ABC Smart phone with XY zoom technology’ gives a topic idea to write about ABC smart phone and the XY technology as well.

One last word

Watching television is no waste of time any longer. I still see some people saying that a television is an idiot box. The television is evolved, it is not just a device that plays puppet smash entertainment shows any longer. It gives knowledge, educates and teach about new ways to live in a day-to-day social life.

Apart from all the above, television is a great source of ideas for blogging. I love to note down ideas from my favorite shows and write about them on my blogs.

Hope you find yours while watching TV today. Don’t forget to post me the articles that you wrote watching television. Keep blogging!

Will Google Page Rank’s Death Take Toll on Pro Blogger Blogs?

The wait is over! Google have made it clear finally that there would be no PageRank update any more. Webmasters who have been waiting all this long till October of this year were disappointed where as those who never cared about it rejoiced the decision taken by Google.


The reason why PageRank was introduced is to fasten the process of serving search results much accurately and quickly. That means when someone searches for something on Google, the search engine will go with the relevant keywords on highly ranked websites and the rest later.

We cannot see the time difference of Google serving results on SERP as it would take fraction of second in doing it.

So, what could have made Google take this epic decision?

What might be the reason behind the killing of PageRank?

RIP_google-pagerank

Google always tries to serve at its best to its users. In this process, when someone searches for an information on Google, the best possible results are served. The introduction of the PageRank and killing of it has the same motive. Not only these, the spam reduction and quality analysis algorithm versions of Panda and Penguin were/are and will work with the same motive, ‘to give the best related results’.

Let us consider a keyword that is mostly searched on Google. The search engine would prefer to display links from high PR sites moving down to the lowest PR sites and then to the sites with no PR.

 

That doesn’t mean that blogs with no PR will always get out-listed in SERP. If a page on blog with zero PageRank is found to be having high quality content, then Google will consider it primarily though, high PR sites will dominate its persistence.

Most likely in Google perspective – The reason for killing the PageRank that I could smell standing on Google’s shoulder is that it don’t want the high quality content blogs get dominated by the existence of highly ranked blogs which in turn takes toll on ‘serving the best’ for users.

It won’t take much effort to show up highly PR blog in SERP where as for a zero PR blog will strive hard to get shown on the first page. Though the zero PR blog have better content than the high PR blog, it will somehow get suffered by Google unfair discrimination.

To get the prioritized equal to high PR blogs, the zero PR blog must wait for the next PR update by Google.

We know that Google will update Page Ranks hardly 3 times a year, that means the high quality content blog which is still under ranked will loose the push it deserves and also the user is served with not exact relevant results though existed in Google’s index base.

So as to mitigate the discrimination in the off PR times and to highlight quality content in the search engine results page, Google would have taken the decision.

Will it take toll on pro blogger’s blogs?

PageRank is dead, that doesn’t mean Google had stopped the process of analyzing and prioritizing high quality content. It is stopped to eliminate the discriminations among the newly started high quality content blogs and old high PR cum high quality content blogs.

If a pro blogger’s blog is having high PageRank and he has been creating less quality content than he is used to since last PR update, he would have to pay the price for it. The just beginner blogger who have been updating his blog with awesome content consistently will get benefitted by this decision.

If a pro blogger, who have been consistent enough in creating quality content in his blog won’t get touched but he would surely get an extra competition in the race.

So, that’s what I saw. Do you see it in any other perspective? Feel free to share it in comments. Thank you!
