Blogger provides Meta Description for blog posts. Meta Description tells the google bot a little description of what the blog post is about. Meta description is the description you see under the under the URL of the blog or website.

Though it is not necessary that google bot takes the same description in account. The bot most probably make its own meta description from snippet of your blog post depending upon what the user queries in google.

But still it is considered to provide well defined meta description for each blog post.

It is recommended not to just copy paste any section from you blog to the meta description. But create a well defined summarized description of the blog post.

Recommended length of meta description is around 140 - 160 characters.

Meta Description can used in Blogger Blog Post in the side panel of the post editor. It is named as 'search description'.



3. Image Alt Tag


Blogger has a option called Image Alt Text. It will be available in the properties option of an image that you upload and post on your blog.

So. What is this Image Alt Tag ?

See, Google bot cannot read images, it doesn't know what's in the picture. So the image alt tag describes what the picture is all about. 

It is also responsible ranking blog post images of your blog.

Always fill the Alt Tag option with appropriate title for the picture when you one. It will help google bot recognize images and associate with your blog post efficiently.

Every blog post in your blog blog is given a specific URL which is similar to the URL given below.

If you are using blogger and not using the heading, subheadings and minor headings in your blog post. Then you have made a huge mistake. 

Don't worry it can be resolved. 

These are mainly knows as h1, h2, h3, h4 headings which are a great factor for SEO in your blog post.
