What Are Labels In Blogger?
A Label is similar to the category or grouping, which you can use to group your blogger posts. Labels acts as a reference in your blogger search function. When a user searches for a particular topic on google blogger by using a label/tag, then the blog engine can list down those related posts, which are group under that specific label.
How To Use Labels Properly On Google Blogger
We have a common misconception about blogger labels; that is, labels/post categories/tags have SEO value, and adding keywords into the label section may help to improve our SEO ranking. But the truth is, they don’t help in your SEO ranking factor. They help to organize your content, and they will help your readers to find related type posts.
So, entering a lot of keywords into the label section isn’t a good idea. Google may detect it as keyword stuffing or spam activity, and SEO ranking may be affected by doing this. So, stay away from this
Adding Label To Your Blogger Post Section

- Now click on the “Posts” link on the left-hand side.
- Now click on the title of the post you want to add labels.
- In the Post Editor section, check on the right-hand side and click on the Labels tab from there.
- In this field, type your category name. Here you can separate multiple categories with commas.
- After you’re done adding/editing labels on the post editor section, click on the Update button at the top of the post editor section to save the record.
