4.Post URL Link
As with the title of the post, in the URL too, you need to place the keyword in the URL and as in the title, here too you will need to put the keyword in the URL. Be sure you change the URL when you change the title of the post.
In BlogSpot websites too, you will need to maintain the keyword density and proximity. If you fill up your post with too many keywords, then that would be considered as spam, and you will never be able to rank anything.
6.Labels and Related Posts
Using proper labels are important. Here labels are equivalent to tags, and if not done properly, you will never see a relevant post. The related post is shown automatically based on the label that you have created. Better do it right if you want BlogSpot to suggest good related posts.
Make sure you are using the primary keyword along with the secondary keyword and LSI in the meta tags. Do not avoid the meta tags because it is crawled by search engine crawlers to know what the post is about.
8.Nofollow External Links
Sometimes you have to give a nofollow signal to block search engines to crawl certain external links in a website. Go to Settings in BlogSpot and then head towards the HTML section after which you will need to add rel=”nofollow” attribute to get the job.
You should keep the moderators on for the spam comments. Allow comments only to appear once you have approved them and that way you can erase spammy comments. Sometimes comments contain keywords, make sure you approve those comments because they tend to add up to the overall keyword density of the post.
