AdSense Friendly Custom Robots.txt for Blogger


Custom Robots.txt for Blogger


Bloggers who have SEO Knowledge, should know about robots.txt and its use. But it is quite unfamiliar to the new bloggers. But some of them might be interested in Blogger's search preferences and they must ask about what is Custom robots.txt? Well this is not so easy to explain. To the new bloggers, the explanation might be confusing. In order to explain the term robots.txt, I've to tell about search bots or search crawlers. But I will try to explain the term clearly. 


Suppose, you've opened a blog in blogger. continuously you're publishing new posts. If everything is okay, your post will appear in Google Search within few hours. If your post is matched with someone's search topic, your site will appear in the search results. How it's possible? 


Blogger's Default robots.txt:

Search engines scan your site for new posts continuously. This is known as crawling. Search bots crawl your site regularly and index your posts in their directory. By default, blogger comes with a robots.txt for your site that helps search engines crawl your site.

But as we know, the default or general settings never guarantee the accurate result. So we need to customize the settings as our requirement. Same rule is applicable for blogger's robots.txt.


Custom Robots.txt for Blogger Blog:

Today you will learn how to customize the robots.txt of blogger. There is a rumor that the default robots.txt can't index the old posts properly. If you have a proper custom robots.txt, your posts will be indexed properly. In my last post, I discussed about creating XML sitemap for blogger blog. There I gave example of XML sitemap. You can use that sitemap as your custom robots.txt content.



Custom Robots.txt Settings for Blogger


Look at the above image. This is how you can customize your robots.txt element. Or use the instruction below:

Sign in to Blogger Dashboard > Settings > Search Preferences > Crawler and Indexing > Custom robots.txt > Enable? > Yes > Now add the code below > Save Changes.


# Blogger Sitemap generated on 2013.11.06
User-agent: *
Disallow: /search
Allow: /
Sitemap: http://www.markspcsolution.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500


Here you just need to change the site URL. Replace the word munnamark with yours. And for sure, this will help search engines for better crawling of your site.



AdSense Friendly Custom Robots.txt for Blogger:

This custom robots.txt might be less useful for AdSense enabled blog. If you use this type of custom robots.txt in your blog, AdSense will not be able to show relevant ads on your site. Consequently your ads impression you will affected seriously. And ultimately, your revenue will fall.

But a little change in that could save you all the day. If your site is AdSense enabled, then use the following code:


User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
Disallow:
# Blogger Sitemap generated on 2013.11.04
User-agent: *
Disallow: /search
Allow: /
Sitemap: http://
www.markspcsolution.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500


Look, only the blue part has been added with the previous code. If you're working with AdSense then consider using this code as your robots.txt element. Actually the blue part is used by Google AdSense only. 

If you use this code (User-agent: Mediapartners-Google Disallow:), AdSense will be able to crawl your posts properly. Then it will show relevant ads on your site. And the other part of the code will be used by the search engines for indexing your contents.

    3. Actually you didn't get me. You were supposed to make your site faster. Use a simple template. Or simply use one of the default blogger templates.

      By the way - where do you get that you have duplicate meta? Have you changed your template manually? Maybe your current template has some problems. Use simple blogger template.

      Forget about styles, social gadgets. Visitors hate these. People hardly like or plus one your site. So remove them if possible. Speed is necessary.

    2. Just replace the URL in sitemap. Maybe date is not much inportant. But you can use the current date.

      And to reduce the fall in pageviews, you have to add the new domain in Google Webmaster. And only then you can change your address. I mean .blogspot to .com.

      You know this is simple template. But why do you want this one? I've manually edited it. And everywhere you will get my site's link. You have to change them again.

      Better you can choose the simple template (your site is too heavy). Then I can help you to customize it. Even I've tips to customize the simple template as you want. You can chat me: munnamark at Google Talk or Gmail.

    1. How old your site is? It may take some times to be indexed in Google. And I've checked your site. There is no content.

      Try to write something. Trying to index in the search engines without writing is not a good idea at all !!!

    1. Keep Writing. Some words are highly competitive. In those keywords your site will perform poor in search resutls.

      But as soon as you rank higher, your posts will start appearing in Goolge.
