How To Change Blogger Post URL Using Custom Permalink?

blogger-seo-post-urlWhenever we publish a new post, Blogger automatically generates the post URL according to the title of the blog post. For example, if the post title is How To Change Blogger Post URL Using Permalink? then Blogger will generate http:// technoxide.blogspot.com /2012/07/ how-to-change -blogger-post- url-using.html as the post URL. If you want to change this URL to a small SEO friendly one here comes the solution.

Recently Blogger introduced an option named Permalink in Post settings to edit the post URL to your desired one. In this post I included the simple steps to use custom permalink in Blogger blog. Here are the steps.

Steps:
Note : If you have Permalink Option in your Blogger Post Settings Start from Step 2.

1. Open a post you wish to edit the URL or Create a New Post.
(If you are editing a published post, then click on Revert to draft button to enable Permalink editing.)

2. Then click Permalink in Post Settings.

3. Now check the Custom URL radio button and type the new post URL in Custom URL text field. After changing the URL don't forget to click Done!

4.Finally, Click Publish .

That's it...Now check the post URL it will be changed to the modified one !

Note : If you are changing URL of a old post, please note down the old URL before changing to a new one. Because your old post URL may be submitted to search engine or social websites.So If any one come to your blog using the old URL he will get a 404 not found error. Don't Worry ! you can Redirect your old URL to new URL using Custom Redirects feature of Blogger.

    Create page and add title you want to show in URL and publish. Now change Blogger to Old Interface and edit the page with the title you want to show in your page ...publish....then the old page URL will not change.....

  18. I want to change some of the post titles. What should I do for that? Is there a need to change the permalinks along with the post titles? Will it affect search engine rankings?

  19. @Suresh
    Simply change the post title...no need to change the current permalink ..... if you want to change the old permalinks that already submitted in search engine...use custom redirects...follow the steps here

  26. Thanks for your help! However I'm stuck: I can get to the custom URL part, but what I wanted to do was remove a number (_17) that was generated automatically. For example, my post should have been "Movie" but when I reverted to draft and re-published it, it automatically became "Movie_17" and even after removing the "_17" from the custom URL option in Permalink, the actual Permalink remains "Movie_17" .. anyone else have this problem??

  29. Thank you very much for the information! I like learning new stuff. Well, I am wondering if it is worth renaming,since I don't want to have to manage the redirect for eternity. My take-away is to know the behavior of blogger and to be more careful next time.

  36. the custom permalink will not work if you have a deleted post with the same permalink. It will add an underscore and a random digit number at the end of your custom permalink which is one of the disadvantages of blogger.com ~__~
