    This is gonna help a lot on blogspot! Custom redirects and meta tags are useful stuff and as you said its time to think SERIOUSLY about SEO, because Google started cleaning spam and getting strict in SEO from there home BLOGSPOT. If they are doing in blogspot then Google will expect the same from others too!

    Thanks for the article, Harsh.
    As it is, there are many bloggers who are very comfortable with Blogspot blogs irrespective of the short comings compared to WordPress. Those bloggers (including myself) would be excited to use the features which would be very helpful in promotion of the blogs.

    What do you say is it now necessary to migrate from blogger to wordpress ? As the major reason of migrating from blogger to word press is these options and now blogger is providing by default..

    Wow Great Share Harsh,
    This is the only thing blogspot was lacking in terms of SEO but WordPress is far ahead in my view.

      Hey Shenoy, Search description is a short paragraph (about 120 characters) which is helpful for search engines and search users to understand the content on that page. See the source of this page for an example.

    hello Harsh.. good article … it is good news for the Blogspot users.. Custom redirects and meta tags were some of the demerits of Blogspot when compared to WordPress. this shows how much importance Google is placing on SEO..

    Not just because of SEO but there are various plugins in wordpress that make it more professional and user friendly. However, I find blogger more user friendly for non-technical guy like me. blogger or wordpress, the thing is Google has also started clean the garbage in web, it will take time but there will be a time when content and user friendly thing only rule. Even if you write an obscure topic but write with full research and dedication, the page will come on the top. even my assumption is even interlinking between sites also promote because of well written content one page.

    Hello Harsh Agrawal, First thanks for your important article about blogspot seo. I am newbie in blogger. I just found what i looking for many days. I have one question that is it wise to remove all the label which is already index on google.

      Labels doesn’t help or solve a purpose for search engines. They are useful for site navigation and structure, but not for search engines. I would recommend to noindex them, and remove them from search engines.
