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. In some premium templates, these pages can only be added manually in the navigation menu. As an SEO factor these static pages can be set with nofollow and noindex if needed, using custom robots.txt.

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 posts will have the month and year in the URL. This is how you differentiate the posts and pages in blogger by seeing the URL.

Hint

Since Blogger do not allow the user to enter the permalink for the pages, we have to use some tricks to get the preferred URL. Forget about the page name for now and just enter the name which you want in the 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 needed. Start inserting contents.
