Add A Blog Descrption

In this post I will show you how to add a blog description. Blog descriptions are important because they not only can tell a visitor quickly what your blog is about, but the description also helps search engines organize data about your site to show when it gets indexed.

There is more than 1 way to add a description but the easiest and most familiar, if you've been following the posts so far, would be to once again click the layout tab. You will see a header section with the name of your blog.

Click the blue Edit link on the right side like shown in the picture and the following screen will show:

Below the blog title, which is the name you gave your blog when you created it, you will see a section called blog description. This is where you will add a informative overview of what your blog is about. Keep it short and to the point and make sure you use relevant words to describe your blog and not just fluff like "The coolest site on Earth" unless of course your site truly is the coolest site on Earth, then more power to you. You just might not get a fair shake in Search Engine indexing if you don't have the right words to describe it, or an appropriate blog title for that matter.

Now there are other options on here, but for now we won't worry about them. After you have written your blog description click the orange Save button. Your description will show right after the blog title on your blog. This is what My Blogger Experience looks like now after adding the description:
