How This Snippet Impacts on Blogger Post Images?

As you’ve added this snippet on your template so it controls all the images under a <div tag which is binded to class="separator" [that you can monitor once you add an image from your post editor].

Somehow blogger uses a default scheme to add images with anchor on post once you upload it, you can manually delete the link simply clicking on link after selecting the image on your post editor also can give properties [image title, image alt] to each image.

But now it’s possible to automatically remove hyperlink from images in blogger using the snippet above mentioned. This code will help your images not to create outline [either on right click or left from mouse] also it will not work on all images [adsense banner ad or any other banner] but only the images that you attach using blogger default upload option. So you have the full control over images that remain under class="separator"

Heading tags are one of the most important constructive feature of HTML pages when it comes in both on-page and off-page SEO. It automatically defines search engines all about your blog content and how they’re interconnected. HTML Headline is one type of simple markup language that defines the properties of an URL to search engines basically the title tag, meta title, keywords, descriptions etc.

This structure of web pages make it possible for Webkit browsers to view content, cellphones to view the content, and screen readers to read the content aloud. The most common issue about HTML Headlines is the properly fixation which will be search engine optimized and help search robots to index pages easily.

Headlines are simply defined by H1, H2, H3 etc. tags where
H1 is the most important tag according to the view of search engines,
next to less important tag H2 and finally H3.

Any type of wrong configuration will seriously result your pages being ignored by search engines. By today’s tutorial I will discuss some very basic things of Headline tags and how to setting for blogger to optimize content.

8 Basic Principles About HTML Headings

  1. The most important headline on any page should be the H1 tag
  2. You can signify Homepage title as H1 tag also can do same for content title
  3. Sub-headlines should be signified by H2 and the sub sub-headline is H3
  4. Heading tags should be enriched with search terms so that search robots will love to index content
  5. If your heading tags include no search term, so what i can say a wasted heading after all
  6. Keywords should be properly set according to their search terms gradient on search engines
  7. Should not include images for headlines, which is just considered a bad SEO idea
  8. Let robots index all the available headings in your site and never resist them using robots.txt that is also a bad idea

Importance of Using H1, H2, H3, H4 Headlines

If you think of a Web page as an outline, you’ve to think of most important element Heading tags (H1, H2 etc.) which serve to divide the page into sections. The most important headline of your page is H1 headline which generally indicates the topic of your entire webpage also signifies individual contents.

When search robots read a website to index, it reads the code directly (specially hunt for heading tags) not the snazzy presentation that humans see. Since search engines first priority is to provide people the ultimate results on the basis of different search terms, also they try the same techniques to determine what page is about.

Hence content in the H1 tag will be considered the most important component to help search engines represent a page with detailed information. The sub headings should be signified with H2 Headline and respectively sub sub-headline to H3, thus lowest important tags will be set with H4, H5 and H6(The final HTML tag).

Your sidebar titles are least important to search robots so that you can set H4 tag for sidebar title also do same for footer section titles (because they are also least important)
