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.
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.
The limitation which static pages has from the ordinary post is that, it lacks few options like setting Permalinks, Scheduling, location and labeling.
Login to your Blogger using your Google Account. Go inside your blog from the dashboard and click Create pages from the left side and then click New Page as shown here
Now You will be taken to the Page editor.
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.
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.
