This involves in customizing description meta tag for your Blogger blog, Click on Edit and Enable it and write a short description of your blog in it and save it.

Lets move with the second customization, i.e, . .


This involve two sub options, one is Custom Page Not Found and another is Custom Redirects.

  • Custom Page Not Found::

So the conclusion here is You can easily create new redirections using this feature. .

Now The Final customization category is. .


This is usually recommended for webmasters and not kindly recommended for starter bloggers because the wrong customization in this category can lead search engines to not crawl or index your blog at all. This Category includes two sub categories. .

  • Custom Robots.Txt:-
The concept of this category is, it includes manual creation of robots.txt file for instructing search engines to crawl / not crawl particular categories of your blog. If you are aware of Robots.txt file, then i hope you have understood that you can create manual robots.txt file using this feature.

  • Custom Robots Header Tags:-

It is recommended that, you should select Noindex for your Archive and search pages category to avoid duplicate content penalty by Google.
