Creating Static Pages in Blogger

2054

This post is specially for the new bloggers, who really don’t know where to start. This tutorial help you to create static pages in Blogger. Blogger comes with the facility to create static pages but are not fully customizable. It lacks few features than the ordinary posts like, changing the permalink. For the new bloggers, I recommend you to read the following articles, Creating a blog in blogger, Giving Professional look to Blogger Blog, Adding Custom Robots, Creating posts in blogger. Let us Start.

What is the use of Pages in Blogger Blog?

These pages are used to provide some information like About, Contact, etc. If you are use blogger default templates in your blog, then these pages can be added directly into the navigation menu. Still in some premium templates these pages can only be added in the navigation menu. Also the main use is that, as an SEO factor these static pages can be set with nofollow and noindex if needed using custom robots.txt.

Limitations

The limitation which static pages has from the ordinary post is that, it lacks few options like setting Permalinks, Scheduling,  location and labeling.

Enter the contents

Enter the Page heading, type the contents, give a preview to check whether everything you typed are aligned properly. If everything is fine, click the publish button to publish your page. the created page will have the URL structure like www.yourdomain.com/p/post-name.html . But the posts will have the month and year in the URL. This is how you differentiate the posts and pages by seeing the URL.

Hint

Since Blogger do not allow the user to enter the permalink for their pages we have to do some tricks to get the preferred URL. Forget about the page name for now and just enter the name which you want it in your URL. Click Publish button. Now you will get the URL which you have entered in the page name. Again click edit button. Change the page name if you want. Start inserting contents.

    the tip regarding how to change the name of the url totally didn’t work

    • Try it as mentioned. It will surely work. I had personally tried and got the URL as expected in my old blogs. For example if you want your URL as yyy.blogspot.com/contact-us.html . click “new page” and enter “contact us” in the page name and click publish. Now check the URL it will be there as expected. Please let me know if it worked for you.
      Thanks.
