Create themes and layouts for blogging using the blogger template platform.
What is a Blogger template?
A blogger template is a pre-designed layout you can use to create your own blogging layout and content on blogger.com.
Blogger.com hosts websites and is free. You can therefore present complete blogging layouts including hosting, free of any charge. You do not have to do any graphics or designing skills. And you can choose to create it from a huge range of themes.
When you buy a premium blogger template you can download it and then move it over to blogger.com
Are all Blogger templates free?
If you want something a little special, there are premium themes and layouts in templates you can choose from. These are usually not very expensive and can make your site and your blogging posts stand out a little more.
Bear in mind that whatever you set up and whatever content you post, will always have blogger.com as part of your address because it is being hosted by blogger.com
How to choose a Blogger template?
A simple search for "free blogger templates" will give you thousands of templates to choose from. To create your own blogging content, just dive right in. Mistakes are easily corrected.
What is a responsive blogger template?
This is a template that will automatically adjust elements on the page to suit the device you are using
For example, if you are viewing your site on a cell phone, the image sizes will be adjusted to fit. There will also be what is called a 3 line hamburger menu which expands out into full navigation when you touch it.
All navigation is carried out by touch on a mobile, rather than clicking a mouse.
All the functions that are available on tablets and cell phones are created using responsive web design tools.
Many of the principles used for search engine optimization on stand-alone sites can be used on the blogger platform.
Questions and answers are a favourite search in google and can be put to good use in your Blogger content, built on a responsive web design installation.
Blogger questions and answers often appear in Google frequently asked questions in SERPs and it is a solid strategy to add them into the page, for good search engine optimization.
Blogger is Google's free blog platform. BlogSpot on the other hand is a free domain service provider.
They are used together on the one platform blogger.com where you will create your site. As they are both owned by Google they are particularly safe from being hacked.
Free Blogger templates
Because Blogger is the service of a free theme provided by Google, it is very popular with those starting out in the world of blogging and who want to get content published
There is no maintenance involved, and security is under the protection of Google itself. So your site is going to be secure from hackers etc.
Do bear in mind that Google can decide to unpublish your site for any reason.
Also, you will not have the functionality and control over how it works if it were a standalone site, but if you're starting out in the blogging world, that may not be a factor.
You can adjust CSS which gives a degree of control over how your content will look.
There are dedicated plugins that will allow you to adjust this functionality. So you could add in things like social postings on Instagram or Whatsapp.
Blogger has developed its own gadgets which will allow you to add in functionalities like:
- Ad display
Because blogger has been around for such a long time there is a huge range of options you can go for when you pick a theme to use.
This page at www.gooyaabitemplates.com offers some very up-to-the-minute designs.
There are literally thousands to choose from. The reason they are free is the developers hope you will require some customization, but that still allows you to experiment and try out a big range of graphic designs, which you would be hard pressed to do yourself unless you are a designer,
Some of the free templates at btemplates.com are very attractive.
Clearly, there must be many users of blogger.com who use themes because developers and providers keep uploading the latest artistic trends as far as web page design is concerned.
They offer filters at the start so you can select and narrow down your preference by style, features topics and colours.
Lastly, they give a live demo of the templates so you can get a feel of how it will look before you go to the effort of installing it on your blogger.com blog.
Why speed matters.
The purpose of this site is to compare the speeds of different templates and platforms.
In particular, we test a range of WordPress templates versus free blogger templates, hosted by google.
The reason speed is important is because of the percentage of people who click away after a few short seconds if they don’t get what they want. The latest estimates put this at 53% clicking away after 3 seconds.
Losing traffic can be an expensive business and it's worth considering anything that will keep them on board, no matter what template or platform you use.
Blogger.com has been around for such a long time that analysts tend to use it for analysis.
The Harvard business review recently did an article on why men are more abstract than women and used blogger.com for the data to back up their article. They tapped into 600,000 blog posts to back up their report. The report goes on to say women write more clearly but less abstractly in their writings. You can read the information here.
