Another day of rejoicing! I'm overjoyed as I've just created a Sitemap Page here today! This is a better and more comprehensive way of displaying our Blogger blog's posts, sorted by labels and having them all contained in a single page, making them easily accessible and readily navigable for visitors and search engines alike. It brings alive posts that would otherwise have remained buried within our blog from readers' eyes, probably from blog owners' sight too...like, out of sight, out of mind!
A picture below to illustrate the impressive result!
Here's how to create a Table of Contents or Sitemap, sorted by labels :
(Important note : all your posts must have labels before you can proceed with the following steps, otherwise it will not work)
- Create a Page - go to Dashboard | Edit Posts, which will then open the Posting tab in Blogger. Select Edit Pages, click on the New Page button and type in the Page title, e.g Sitemap, Table of Contents, Labels or whatever that you fancy. Ideally, the title should be short as that will also serve as the page tab's name in your blog.
- Next, select the Edit HTML mode to prepare your post. Copy and paste the following code into the post box :
Then, change the code in red (jacqsbloggertips.blogspot.com) to the URL of your Blogger blog.
- You can add extra content, such as an introductory/explanatory paragraph above or below the script code, if you wish. Do this while in the Edit HTML mode. Then click Publish Page and you're done. Once your Sitemap Page is published, its tab will appear under your blog's header.
(Tip: the Page tabs are linked to the Pages widget (gadget) at Layouts | Page Elements where you can configure the page list or reposition the page tabs to the sidebar).
Go for it...create a Table of Contents/Sitemap or Labels Page on your blog and reap the benefits. This is a better alternative to the default labels by Blogger as it presents all the post titles related to a specific label and your readers just need to select what fancy them.
