Today I want to share some tips on which settings to use for your new blog. When using Blogger for your blog host, changing your blog settings is very easy to do. First sign in and go to your Blogger Dashboard. Then click on settings.

Here is what you'll want to do next: (These are only the ones that are the most important)

Under Basic:

Title-YOU SHOULD PUT 1 OR 2 KEYWORDS INTO YOUR TITLE
Description-THIS SHOULD BE RELATED TO YOUR BLOG TOPIC
Add your blog to our listings? YES
YES
(The others are up to you)

Under Comments:
Comments- SHOW
Who Can Comment? ANYONE
Comments Default for Posts-NEW POSTS HAVE COMMENTS
Backlinks-SHOW
Backlinks Default for Posts-NEW POSTS HAVE BACKLINKS

Under Archiving:
Enable Post Pages? YES

Under Permissions:

Who can view this blog? ANYBODY

These are the most important settings to have, if you want to get listed in the search engines. Until you are more familiar with what each setting does, I would go by these here for the best results. The ones I have left out are up to you.

In tomorrows post, I will help you choose which gadgets to use and where to place them on your blog. Until then, keep working smart and as always, good luck!
