Still worried with restriction URL by google robots and duplicate contents on your blogger?

About "URL restricted by robots.txt " - If we using wordpress with owned web hosting, the duplicate content problems are easily solved by changing robots.txt file or use so many wordpress plugins, such as SEO Meta Tags, etc..., But we use blogger/blogspot with default robots.txt file : http://seoblog7.blogspot.com/robots.txt

But actually, the restriction URL by google robots is not a serious problem, This restriction is done by default on blogspot*com (and domains that use blogger like yours, of course) and does not need to be resolved in any way, it's not an error...read more my old post here : Block duplicate content and use rel='canonical' again , or here : http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2008/03/speaking-language-of-robots.html

If you've got warning at your Google Webmaster Tools, it's doesn't mean that you have duplicate contents , Restriction URL and Duplicate contents are diferent. Restriction URL means, your URL has been indexed by google's robots, but restricted by robots.txt file, and Google Webmaster Tools give you a warning messages. And the duplicate contents means , robot has indexed that your urls is a duplicate and the penalty will kill your url on google search-engines or throw your url, into the Google Jail that's Google Sandbox .

Ok, anyway, if you are still worried with those duplicate contents on your blogspot blogs, try this tips:

First, as an example I use Simple SEO Friendly Blogger Template .

Look into the <head> section, you will see as below codes...

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<title> <data:blog.pageName/> </title>
<b:else/>
<title> <data:blog.title/> </title>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
<meta content='YOUR DESCRIPTION' name='description'/>
<meta content='KEYWORD1,KEYWORD2,KEYWORD3' name='keywords'/>
</b:if>
<meta content='global' name='target'/>
<meta content='Index,follow' name='Robots'/>
<meta content='ALL' name='SPIDERS'/>
<meta content='ALL' name='WEBCRAWLERS'/>
<meta content='general' name='rating'/>
<meta content='YOUR NAME' name='author'/>
<meta content='100' name='alexa'/>
<link expr:href='data:blog.url' rel='canonical'/>

And you can change the favicon image with yours
<link href='http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/1.gif' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/x-icon'/>

Add the following codes,

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "archive"'>
<meta content='noindex,follow' name='robots'/>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;/search&quot;'>
<meta content='noindex,follow' name='robots'/>
</b:if>

So it will look like the following :

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<title> <data:blog.pageName/> </title>
<b:else/>
<title> <data:blog.title/> </title>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
<meta content='YOUR DESCRIPTION' name='description'/>
<meta content='KEYWORD1,KEYWORD2,KEYWORD3' name='keywords'/>
</b:if>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "archive"'>
<meta content='noindex,follow' name='robots'/>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;/search&quot;'>
<meta content='noindex,follow' name='robots'/>
</b:if>

<meta content='global' name='target'/>
<meta content='Index,follow' name='Robots'/>
<meta content='ALL' name='SPIDERS'/>
<meta content='ALL' name='WEBCRAWLERS'/>
<meta content='general' name='rating'/>
<meta content='YOUR NAME' name='author'/>
<meta content='100' name='alexa'/>
<link expr:href='data:blog.url' rel='canonical'/>

And you can change the favicon image with yours
<link href='http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/1.gif' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/x-icon'/>


From the above code we tried to make the "archive" not being indexed? , yes the blog archives are very bad in SEO , they have displayed our post titles in doubles and indiscriminate and I think that good enough to disabling your Archiving Page throught your Dashboard : "Settings - Archiving - Archive Frequency" menu and select No Archive, show the labels only, and to display your latest posts you can use feeds (Design - Add a Gadget - Feed , then type :http://YOUR-BLOG.blogspot.com/atom.xml), It's really SEO Friendly Bloggger Configuration

And "noindex" for "/search" to shouting more loudly, once again to google's robots , "Google,.. don't index my search/label pages, and don't give me a warning about it...Please!"

This is very informative. Before I just used meta tags placed after the opening head tag. I never thought that using conditional tag, we can avoid any issues in SEO in blogger. Thank you for this. I already applied this to my tech blog, Gadgets Philippine Prices
