Why and How to Use Labels ?


As the number of posts grow it is very difficult to show them up on your main blog page because your blog becomes to bulky to be opened up by a browser, so here comes the labels. They allow you to put different posts under different categories with specific words you choose. So whenever a person searches for any keyword on your blog then the posts with the same labels or keywords are showed up in the search results. This lets the viewers surf your blog in a very easy manner. For example the person search for posts related to Apple on your blog then all the posts with label apple are shown in the results.

  • Now after you finish writing your post, put the labels in the field “Labels for this post:”

I think it's not yet possible to make sub labels in blogger, let's wait and see if the feature comes onto blogger platform..Until then continue using simple labels, they are really useful.

Good luck!

Great Info Bob, but how do I put a link to my banner that will direct me to another site?

@vernz, to do this you have to put the img src tags inside the hyperlink tags. for example (a)(img src)(/a)...
