To use the SEO Blogger template, the Modified Mr Moto template (mr_template.txt), you will have to use the Classic template which is used by the Old Blogger. If you've just created your Blogger account recently, using the Google account, then you're using New Blogger. No worry, you can still use the optimized template by changing the settings of your Blogger template.
Here, we'll show you how to revert to the Classic Template.
First, log in to New Blogger. Do to Dashboard and click Template.
You know you are using the New Blogger template when you have the "Page Elements" tab.
The next step is to Revert to Classic Template.
You will be prompted to confirm the change, click OK.
Your Template area should now look different now. Your Template option tabs now changed to Edit HTML, Pick New, Customize Design and Adsense.
Next, you will need to paste the mr_template.txt into the Template Editor window. You will use Notepad to open the mr_template.txt and copy the entire content.
Here's some shortcut keystroke useful for selecting all text, copy text and paste text.
- Ctrl-A: To select all text, hold down the Ctrl key and then press A.
- Ctrl-C: To copy text, hold down the Ctrl key and then press C.
- Ctrl-V: To paste text, hold down the Ctrl key and then press V.
Once you've copied the entire text from the mr-template.txt, return to Blogger Template Editor window. Click inside the editor window to make sure you position the cursor properly.
To replace the existing template codes with the new codes, Ctrl-A to select all the text inside the editor window. Then Ctrl-V to paste the new codes.
Check to see that the new codes has been pasted correctly. You should see something similar to the screen shot below.
Click Save Template Changes to update the template change.
That completes out template modification. You now have a search engine friendly and optimized blog template.
