Blog Settings

Change the thumbnail, name, title, description, and backups for your blog. You can also find your blog's RSS feed URL here. Adding a blog name, title, description and URL are important because they help with your blog SEO. The more keywords used in the name, title, and description, the more relevance your blog will have on search engines. For example, using the term "food blog" in your blog name, title, description and URL helps search engines find your blog when users search for the term "food blog."

In the left panel, click Blog, and then click Blog Settings. You have the following options:

  • Blog name. This name displays on the sites as the title of the All Posts widget.
  • Show Next/Previous post navigation links. Set the text and appearance of posts' navigation links or toggle the setting off to hide these links (these are the links at the bottom of posts to navigate to the next or previous post).
    • Next post link. Update the verbiage or style of this link.
    • Previous post link. Update the verbiage or style of this link.
