What is the use of Pages in Blogger Blog?
These pages are used to provide some information like About, Contact, etc. If you are using blogger default templates, 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.
Limitations of Static Pages in Blogger
The limitation which static pages has from the ordinary post is that it lacks few options like setting permalinks, scheduling, location, and labeling.
How to create a Static Pages in Blogger
Login to Blogger using your Google Account. Go inside your blog from the dashboard and click 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. Click the preview button to verify the content and its proper alignment. If everything looks great, 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 analyzing the URL.
Since Blogger does not allow the users 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 the Publish button. You will get the URL which you have entered as the page name. Again click the edit button. Change the page name as required. Start inserting contents.
