FROM just the title —“Basic SEO Tips for Beginner Bloggers: Changing Blog Name and Description”—very clear, this post intended for beginner blogger alias newbie. So, “non-beginner” bloggers, moreover “senior bloggers” and “SEO expert bloggers” should not read this post 🙂
There are at least two basic elements of SEO that novice bloggers must know and “practice”:
- Blog Name (Blog Title/Site Title)
- Tagline Text (Tagline Text/Blog Description)
The blog title (Blog Title) can be made the same as the blog address (Blog Address). For example, the title of the blog you are currently visiting is Example Blogs. Blog address: exampleblognih.blogspot.com
The title and address of the blog should be relevant to the blog address. However, it can be very different, aligned with the description and content (content) of the blog.
For example, the blog address namaanada.blogspot.com, but the Blog Name/Title may be, for example, “Learn to Write” or “My Voice for the World“.
Best of all, according to blog SEO experts, blog addresses and names align, such as the Name and Address of the Blog you’re currently visiting: exampleblognih.blogspot.com (Blog Address) and Example Blog (Blog Name). Why use extra? here? Because if only exampleblog “not available” aka already in-booking other bloggers.
