Here I want to share my experience by explaining the 7 most important On-Page SEO factors you should be dead sure to get right.<br /><br />First of all, there is On-Page and Off-Page SEO. When you are starting out, you will find out that in short term you have full control over your On-Page SEO, whereas Off-Page SEO is an activity that rather pays off in the long term. In the first stage, you want to make sure that your On-Page SEO is THE killer, because your future results can be depended dramatically on how well your website 'enters the market'.<br /><br />Here is a quick breakdown of my <b>7 Most Important On-Page SEO Factors</b> which I will explain in more detail:<br /><ol><li>Domain</li><li>URL Structure</li><li>Page Title</li><li>Meta Description</li><li>h1, h2, h3 titles</li><li>Image alt &amp; title attribute</li><li>Linking to internal pages</li></ol><h2>1. Domain</h2>Your domain name is your brand name and therefore the strongest element in SEO. In the past, people would often choose keyword domain names, because it had a huge impact on the rankings. These times are gone - Google has changed. Today it is not enough to just have a domain like www.seo-tips.com to rank high for the keyword 'SEO Tips'. Try it out yourself by typing it in Google. On which page do you see a domain containing the word 'SEO' &amp; 'Tips'?<br /><br />Regarding domain names, think of it as a chance to brand yourself. The domain is the address that you are going to present to a lot of people. If your customer asks how your homepage is called, you don't want to say: It's www.seo-company-usa.com. You will not rank high for 'SEO Company in USA' because of it. Chances are high that it will make it more difficult because you forgot about Off-Page SEO. Branding gets more backlinks than a spammy url.<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Tip: Choose a domain with a high recognition value. Many times a brand-keyword combination are used. For example: www.spiceupseo.com. The brand is 'Spice Up' and keyword 'SEO'.</blockquote><br /><h2>2. URL Structure</h2>When you have chosen an appropriate domain name, you want to make sure that your subpages have a good url structure. Let's say you are an Online Marketing Agency called SpiceUp, and are going to create a subpage listing your On-Page SEO offers. A good url for this subpage would be www.spiceup.com/on-page-seo. The proper use of keywords in the url (after domain.com) are a critical success factor.<br /><br />It gets a bit more interesting when you have more services to offer. Let's say you offer On-Page SEO, Linkbuilding, Social Media Marketing, AdWords campaign etc. In this case you are well adviced to group all similar pages in a subpath called '/services/'. The url of your subpage 'linkbuilding' would be www.spiceupseo.com/services/linkbuilding.<br /><br />Google loves good site structures. It saves him time to index your subpages. Please do him a favour and he may prioritize your pages.<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Tip: For subpages make sure that the variable that will be appended to the url summarizes the content of the page and sound SEO friendly. For example: www.spiceupseo.com/social-media-marketing where Social Media Marketing is the service you offer.</blockquote><br /><h2>3. Page Title</h2>The page title is both an attention grabber and a very important SEO element.<br /><br />First of all, when a user makes a Google search, Google wants to return him a result list within 1/8 of second. To decide which webpage to list first, Google will often display one that has the search query in the page title.<br /><br />The second reason is the stand out effect. Imagine you are walking through a book store, looking for a good SEO book. Which one will you touch first? Probably the book with the best title. A title that grabbed your attention. A title that is different than all others. The same is true in the SERP (search engine results page). If you get 10 results, will you always click on the first result? I don't think so. And even if. When the first page you clicked on, do you assume that you will find your desired information on the webpage in the second result? Google can never deliver all users a result page with all webpages in perfect order.<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Tip: Include the keyword you are optimizing for in the page title. Don't forget to make it stand out from all the others. Make it clickable!</blockquote><br /><h2>4. Meta Description</h2>When you look at several books, you will notice that most of them have a subtitle as a teaser. In the SERP, the text below the Page Title is called the Meta Description. See an example below:<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><img alt="Page Title &amp; Meta Description in the Google SERP" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-loouAvg4s7g/U4Ju0TANqkI/AAAAAAAAAAg/dLetImSS7Js/s1600/On-Page+SEO.png" style="border: 1px solid rgb(85, 85, 85);" title="Page Title &amp; Meta Description in the Google SERP" /></div><br />When you ask a book-seller to recommend you 5 SEO books that he has never seen himself, he would go to the stock and choose 5 books with the most appealing Title and Subtitle. Search engines may be no different. If Google was lazy, he would just take 5 webpages from its index that have a good Page Title and Meta Description combination.<br /><br />Keep in mind that you don't only need to fill in relevant keywords in the Meta Description, but also try to make it appealing to users. The key ability needed here, is writing for both the search engines and people.<br /><br />Meta Description are not directly important to search engine rankings. It's the CTR (Click-through-Rate) that Google also uses to determine rankings. In worst case, your webpage will drop from rank 1 when the webpages below you get much higher CTR's. That's why you need to write catchy Descriptions because a higher CTR -&gt; positive effect on your ranking.<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Tip: Search the query you want to optimize your webpage for on Google. Look at the Meta Description of the high rankers. Ask yourself which one stands out and why? What do you need to write to appear clickable? Then write a better one.</blockquote><br /><h2>5. h1, h2, h3 titles</h2>Just like a book, a webpage uses headings to intelligently structure the content. Content is still king, but please don't forget to make the content readable for your users. If the user has difficulty reading, he will not share the post, and not even read it.<br /><br />Google also uses headings to make their job as a 'result list returner' easier. As the &lt;h1&gt; html tag is the first level heading of a webpage, it puts the most value to the h1, then h2, h3 etc. Google recommends to only use one h1-tag per webpage. For a blog post, you can set the Post Title as a h1. &lt;h2&gt; tags would be good for further headings within the blog post &amp; &lt;h3&gt; tags can be used for other subtitles or navigation titles.<br /><br />Here is an example of a solid On-Page SEO Structure:<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><img alt="On-Page SEO Heading Structure made in Word" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TC_7jJtKRDI/U4PAm9SU6iI/AAAAAAAAAAw/YWt4mtzMR3k/s1600/On-Page+SEO+-+Headings.png" style="border: 1px solid #555;" title="On-Page SEO Heading Structure made in Word" /></div><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Tip: Only use one h1 title! On the homepage, it could be your header. On subpages, I recommend to use it for Post Titles. As always in SEO, your titles should be SEO friendly and attractive to read. Use h2 to structure your post for better readability.</blockquote><br /><h2>6. Image alt &amp; title attribute</h2>A lot of people forget or don't take their time to write proper image alt &amp; title attributes.<br /><br />Here is a short explanation what the difference between alt-tags and title-tags is:<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><img alt="Image alt &amp; title attribute" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-sm1bNW-RgEo/U4SL-jiIhSI/AAAAAAAAABA/hSZmRZlJawo/s1600/Image+alt+&amp;+title+attribute.png" style="border: 1px solid #555;" title="Image alt &amp; title attribute" /></div><br /><br />The image title attribute is the text that shows up when you hover over the image. Whereas alt is short for alternative. The image alt attribute is the text that will be shown when the user has turned off images or the browser doesn't display images.<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Tip: For the title attribute, choose a title that describes the image and delivers even more information to the user. The alt attribute should describe what would have been there if the user has turned images off. Most often these two attributes have the same text, which is ok.</blockquote><br /><h2>7. Linking to internal pages</h2>We talk about internal linking when we create a link from one webpage to another webpage of a domain. Internal links are passing link juice to the target link. Let's say you have a Page A that has a PageRank of 2. All links from Page A will be evenly distributed to the pages linked to, but only those links that are in 'dofollow'. You can specify the link attribute by writing &lt;a rel='dofollow'&gt;. If you write nothing regarding 'rel', the default is always rel='dofollow'.<br /><br />Internal links are also useful from a usability point of view, especially for blogs. Let's be honest. Blogging is a mess. One day you write about Linkbuilding, the next day you write about How to Write Better Blog Posts and for the next week you write a series about Facebook Marketing. Who will find your post about linkbuilding after a few months?<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Tip: Create internal links to your old awesome posts. You want to make it as easy as possible for your readers to find your most successful blog posts. It's hard to see the articles you've work on fading away. So take your time to link back to it!</blockquote><br /><h2>Content is King</h2>You have heard this a 1000 times and now you will hear it again.<br /><br />Getting these 7 Tips right is good, but not enough. You still have to write quality content. The point is to create great content for your readers and at the same time optimize your On-Page SEO Elements wherever possible.<br /><br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">General Writing Tip: Do your reasearch first. For which keyword do you want to optimize? Write it down and add some synonyms in a short list. Put this list away and write the content without worrying about SEO. Focus on creating killer content first. When you're done, come back and check where you can add keywords &amp; synonyms. Change your boring Post Title to a snappy title. Publish.</blockquote><br />Content is king, nuff said. And there is more to come from us!<br /><br />Have a nice day<br />Stephan Tchen<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:l6gmwiTKsz0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=l6gmwiTKsz0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:TzevzKxY174"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=TzevzKxY174" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:bcOpcFrp8Mo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=bcOpcFrp8Mo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:2nqncYFp4_M"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=2nqncYFp4_M" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=ALAEIanGdnM:avaXSJ-Gj2A:I9og5sOYxJI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=I9og5sOYxJI" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SpiceUpYourBlog/~4/ALAEIanGdnM" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Stephan Tchenhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02798269918522698330noreply@blogger.com9http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2014/05/7-basic-on-page-seo-elements.htmltag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8563022360444004311.post-12949159410137812242014-05-23T16:36:00.000+01:002014-05-23T20:52:00.148+01:00Are Good Question Askers Better at Blogging?<div class="MsoNormal">I could have also modified the title of this post and make it: 'Are bad question askers worse at blogging?'<br /><br />Blogging is about creating value to your readers. You only create value if you are an expert at a subject. and share your knowhow with them. Of course this depends on the type of blog. A gossip blog creates value by posting news up to date.</div><div class="MsoNormal"><o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">If you ask yourself the right questions, you will get a better understanding of a given topic. You have more knowledge that you can transfer to others. When someone asks questions, he’s interested. But this doesn’t mean that you just have to ask as many questions as possible.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Think of people working in the office. Who is viewed as interested and smart? It’s not really those who ask more often, it’s those who just ask better. Just like at blogging <b>Quality over Quantity</b>&nbsp;is true. Good questions can be easily answered thoroughly while worse questions will have to be answered with phrases like <i>it depends</i>.<br /><h2><span style="color: #990000;">Questions with no depth</span></h2></div><div class="MsoNormal">Spotting people who are not very skilled in a topic is easy. If their questions doesn’t allow you to have a deep conversation, the case is clear.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Here is an example of bad set of questions in a conversation about blogging:<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"></div><ul><li>Oh yeah, traffic. How much traffic do we have? Answer: 10'000</li><li>How much money do we earn with AdSense? Answer: $100 / month</li><li>That’s not a lot. How much is possible in future?</li></ul><o:p></o:p><br /><div class="MsoNormal">These are actually good starting questions. But hearing someone already asking how we can increase our revenue before digging in deeper into the data, shows he sucks at asking effective questions in this topic.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><h2><span style="color: #990000;">Questions giving depth</span></h2></div><div class="MsoNormal">10'000 visits or visitors? Per month or per day? If the traffic was per month, the revenue per visit (RPV) was 1 Cent, which is quite high. That makes it unlikely to increase our revenue as getting more traffic is generally more difficult than increasing a low RPV. If the traffic was 10'000 per day, our RPV would be only 0.03 Cent ($100 / 300'000). The reason for this low RPV may be supoptimal ad placing or less targeted traffic.<o:p></o:p><br /><br />That's what I call giving depth to a conversation.</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Let’s see what additional questions we could/must have asked:<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"></div><ul><li>How many Pages per Visit do we have?</li><li>How long does the average user stay on our site?</li><li>What’s our bounce rate?</li><li>What Click-Through-Rate do we have for which keywords and ad placements?</li><li>What is the average CPC?</li><li>What is the impact when we put the AdSense box at place x?</li><li>Could we earn more money if we replaced them with affiliate links?</li></ul><o:p></o:p><br /><div class="MsoNormal">The list can be much longer. A good method for a blogger to find new ideas is asking himself questions that are as specific as possible.<br /><h2><span style="color: #990000;">When thinking about what to write next, consider this:</span></h2><ol><li>Start small with a general blog post.</li><li>After reading a part of your post, ask questions as if you were a reader.</li><li>Answer these questions in another blog post if the question is interesting enough.</li></ol><br />Bam.

Oh, how a few years will change you.<br><br>Now, writing is my saving grace, I am beyond an open book and <i><b>I promote the heck out of me</b></i>, my products and services and anything I believe in. I&#39;m still an introvert at heart but I definitely have extroverted qualities that allow me to exist in the blogging world.<br><br>With all that said, I wish someone had lowered my expectations about what it meant to be a blogger because it is so much more than writing a few posts each week.

<a href="http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2013/03/how-to-use-ifttt.html">IFTTT</a> is a site you can use to connect social accounts, online services, feeds, email and more.When we connect two of these services it is called a &quot;recipe&quot;.I created a recipe wherein you can connect your YouTube account with your Wordpress blog and another were you can connect your YouTube account with your Blogger blog.I have tested both and once connected YouTube uploads are posted on your blog within minutes.I then made these recipes public so anyone can use them.<br><br>I have a video tutorial below along with links to both recipes for you to connect your blogs with your YouTube channel.<br><br><h4><span style="color: #990000;"><span style="font-size: x-large;">Video Tutorial</span></span></h4><a href="http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2014/03/auto-post-youtube-videos-on-blogger-wordpress.html#more">Click Here To View Full Post &gt;&gt;</a><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:l6gmwiTKsz0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=l6gmwiTKsz0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:TzevzKxY174"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=TzevzKxY174" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:bcOpcFrp8Mo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=bcOpcFrp8Mo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:2nqncYFp4_M"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=2nqncYFp4_M" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=yg3oP7lZEmE:R178Ha75U6w:I9og5sOYxJI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=I9og5sOYxJI" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SpiceUpYourBlog/~4/yg3oP7lZEmE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Paul Crowehttps://plus.google.com/117023786342362231815noreply@blogger.com10http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2014/03/auto-post-youtube-videos-on-blogger-wordpress.htmltag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8563022360444004311.post-32630887480737859822014-03-06T22:02:00.002+00:002014-07-02T23:05:07.846+01:00Top 20 Best Premium Blogger Templates<div class="separator" style="clear: both;

For a long time I never even considered listing a collection of Premium Blogger templates.There was for the last few years Premium templates out there but in my opinion they did not offer enough more quality than free templates to warrant a fee.<br><br>But all that has changed, over the last year I have seen a number of designers selling premium templates that really are a cut above the rest.Yes the free templates are still good and some extremely good but many of the premium templates now being released have the extra quality and features that are worth a the lousy few bucks they charge (No template listed below costs more than $20).<br><br>I have actually worked with a few of these templates and it was while working with the first on the list I finally decided to bite the bullet and do the list.So here it is I have linked to the demo&#39;s and you can click on Full Details to get all the info on each template.<br><br><h3><span style="color: #990000;"><span style="font-size: x-large;">20 Best Premium Blogger Templates</span></span></h3><h2><span style="color: #990000;"><a href="http://tinyurl.com/mcy4wwb" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Masala</a></span></h2>Price $20<br>Masala is a template I have worked with and It&#39;s excellent.A bright fresh color scheme with a two column right sidebar layout.The template comes in two styles as you will see in the demo page, both a post list and portfolio style.In the sidebar is social icons with follow counters.A top menu, footer columns, author section and related posts are among the other features.<br><br><center><div class="ddlinks"><a class="demolink" href="http://tinyurl.com/l9mj76u" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check Out The Demo">Demo</a>      <a class="downloadlink" href="http://bit.ly/1ewA4Ru" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check Out The Info">Full Details</a> </div></center><br><img alt="Malasa Template" class="effect11" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-irBAbqm21O0/U0gi8y4V49I/AAAAAAAAOHA/r2OOH6cKIgc/s640/masala-premium-blogger-template.PNG" title="Malasa Template"><br><br><hr align="" center="" class="effect11" color="#ddd" width="75%"><a href="http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2014/03/top-20-best-premium-blogger-templates.html#more">Click Here To View Full Post &gt;&gt;</a><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:l6gmwiTKsz0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=l6gmwiTKsz0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:TzevzKxY174"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=TzevzKxY174" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:bcOpcFrp8Mo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=bcOpcFrp8Mo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:2nqncYFp4_M"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=2nqncYFp4_M" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=EX4YoPmnRn0:BZdLRaG2YUk:I9og5sOYxJI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=I9og5sOYxJI" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SpiceUpYourBlog/~4/EX4YoPmnRn0" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Paul Crowehttps://plus.google.com/117023786342362231815noreply@blogger.com7http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2014/03/top-20-best-premium-blogger-templates.htmltag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8563022360444004311.post-23612548063489227162014-03-05T02:02:00.000+00:002014-03-05T02:06:23.571+00:00How To Automatically Hide Spam Links In Blogger Comments<div class="separator" style="clear: both;

The slide out navbar will be simply the blogger logo in the top corner of the screen but on hover it will slide out to full size.It&#39;s an easy trick to implement and I have a video tutorial at the end below the code if your having trouble.<br><br>Take a look at the demo below : <br><br><b>Note :</b> You will see the small logo in the top corner simply hover your cursor over it for the magic, after a few seconds it will slide back.If you keep your cursor over then navbar it will not slide back, otherwise you can set the time for how long it stays open.<br><br><a href="http://test667788.blogspot.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NqWwhTAFaHY/TbwsOBq-L6I/AAAAAAAADgg/rqUBNbWqSjY/s1600/view-blogger-tutorial-demo.png"></a><br><a href="http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2014/02/change-blogger-navbar-to-slide-out-effect.html#more">Click Here To View Full Post &gt;&gt;</a><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:l6gmwiTKsz0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=l6gmwiTKsz0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?i=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:TzevzKxY174"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=TzevzKxY174" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:bcOpcFrp8Mo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=bcOpcFrp8Mo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:2nqncYFp4_M"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=2nqncYFp4_M" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?a=jl7BnprNWCw:LJi4euzfVqQ:I9og5sOYxJI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SpiceUpYourBlog?d=I9og5sOYxJI" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SpiceUpYourBlog/~4/jl7BnprNWCw" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Paul Crowehttps://plus.google.com/117023786342362231815noreply@blogger.com4http://www.spiceupyourblog.com/2014/02/change-blogger-navbar-to-slide-out-effect.html
