How to set url of post in blogger

When you make a post in Blogger, it automatically generates the URL (which we call permalink in Blogger) such as www.YourDomain/yyyy/mm/ABOUT-MY-POST, this is an example of blogger URL format.

In this URL you will find:

YourDomain can be your custom domain and can also be a subdomain of blogspot eg is a custom domain and is a subdomain of blogspot.

yyyy/mm is the year and month on which the post was originally published

Blogger chooses ABOUT-MY-POST words according to your post title, if the title is empty then it takes the first few words of your post. Blogger has its own rules by which it removes some words from the URL such as "the" and similar common words.

Even after all this, Blogger has a tool of its own, with the help of which you can keep the URL according to you.

  • Go to post editor or create new post
  • In the Post settings area, you will get the option of Permalink, click on it
  • Select Custom permalink instead of Automatic permalink
  • Enter the URL of your choice without space or special characters as blogger allows only "-" and "_" to be entered in the URL for example- ABOUT-MY-POST
  • Finish the post and then publish it.


You can only use the following characters in the URL of blogger post:

  • Lowercase letters ( a, b, c................z )
  • Uppercase letters ( A, B, C................Z )
  • Digits ( 0, 1, 2.....................9)
  • Underscore ( _ )
  • Dash ( - )
  • Full stop which we also call period ( . )

It seems that there is no restriction on the length of the URL, which means you can write any length of URL. (Note:- This is just my guess, rest you can try yourself by using the longest URL)

If the combination of yyyy/mm and ABOUT-MY-POST of the post date (ie yyyy/mm/ABOUT-MY-POST ) is not unique, then blogger automatically removes some of the last characters and puts some number so that the post The URL should always be unique.

Note: - This URL technique is applicable on posts only and not on blogger's pages, to set blogger page permalink, you have to write your page title very carefully because blogger takes URL of pages only from the words of title. Is.
