  • Custom Permalink Structure
By default, blogger provides constructive permalinks. In spite of all this, blogger also offers a robust option to choose custom URL (permalink) for your posts. You can choose select few keywords and can use them in your URLs so that it can generate decent organic traffic from search engines. However, keep in mind stuffing your permalinks with many keywords would decrease the weightage of your keywords altogether. The more keywords you will add in the permalinks, the less will be the keyword weight and hence, its relevancy would be lower in the search results.  

  • Separate Meta Description for Posts
When you are searching anything on Google, you always see a piece of text line just beneath the search results. Those lines are there to help you to determine whether that’s the site which you were looking for. If you would not specify a Meta description, search engines will automatically establish a description for you based on your site’s content. Fortunately, there is a handy tool in blogger located at Settings >> Search engine Preference which enables you to specify separate Meta descriptions for your site’s content. 

  • Custom Redirects Functionality
What would you do, if you want to move your content from one URL to another? You would prefer to use a 301 Permanent redirect so that all the PageRank juice transfers from one page to another. Without pointing a redirect, there is no way you can recover the loss. Blogger also has custom redirect functionality which helps you in redirecting URLs to any page.  This tool can be accessed through Settings >> Search engine Preference >> Custom Redirects.  

  • Custom error Page
Blogger often creates a custom 404 not found page to provide some sorts of comic relief to their readers, and protects them from seeing unfriendly or unentertaining error messages. If you have a broken link on your blog, or a reader navigated to a link which was temporary down then the custom 404 not found page would assist them in finding the content which they were looking for. You can customize your error page from Settings >> Search Preference >> Custom Page Not Found.
