How to Add Tags to a Blogger Blog

Technorati is the search engine many people use when they are searching for particular information on a blog. Tagging with Technorati tags helps people to find your blog. Technorati has a great page called Using Technorati Tags to help you add them to your post.

If I want people who are looking for information about tagging their Blogger blog to find my post, I want to add the tags "tag", "blogger" and "blog" on this post.

Here is how I do it:

In HTML mode, at the bottom of my post, I cut and paste the code from the Using Technorati Tags page which looks like this:

Don't be afraid of the code! Just think of it like Mad Libs. You just need to fill in the blanks. In this case, you are filling in where it says [tagname].

To add the tag, "blog," just replace [tagname] with blog.
To add the tag, "blogger," just replace [tagname] with blogger.
To add the tag, "tag," just put replace [tagname] with tag.

And it will end up looking like this:

Hi The List King,

As far as I know, you still have to do it this way on Blogger. There are other tools and methods that will probably boost your seo more, especially now that people can search for blogs on Google Blog Search and's blog search engine, but it never hurts to add the Technorati tags.
