Blogger Widgets 2020

In this post, I'll show you the most useful Blogger widgets. Using these gadgets you can make your website more attractive and as well as more convenient, what could improve his positions in search engines.

What is a gadget on Blogger

It's HTML elements, which provides some new functions for the blog. For example, it could be Subscribe by email, Translator, Main menu, About author, etc. They're also called widgets in a Blogspot.

There is two types of widgets: SEO and Usability. 

Sometimes it happens that one gadget is of double benefit, that is, it can relate to both SEO and Usability.

Each widget is written in HTML and CSS code, in turn this code can be in JavaScript and include additional libraries such as jquery, ajax and others. I will say right away that it is better when JS is clean without a set of different libraries. Even better, when HTML does not include scripts at all, but alas, most gadgets can not do without them?

What kind of gadgets does the site need first of all

The fact is that there are a huge number of different plugins, but not all of them will be useful for your project, sometimes even can have a negative impact on the promotion in search engines. First of all, your blog needs these gadgets:
  1. Main menu (preferably horizontal, on top of the main content).
  2. Page navigation (numbered or endless scrolling pages).
  3. Breadcrumbs.
  4. Box about the author of the article or blog in general.
  5. Buttons of social networks.
  6. Similar Posts (better dynamic type, especially when the site has a large number of pages).
  7. Recent or popular posts (there may also be random posts).
  8. Headings (blogger labels).
  9. Next ~ previous post (use if the topic is very narrow)
  10. Subscribe to Email newsletter (if visitors return)
These are the main tools to promote a blog. Try to avoid adding extra plug-ins to make pages load faster.

What do search engines like

As I said before, widgets can be written in simple HTML or more complex, using Javascript, which is much harder for search bots to parse, especially when the script is encrypted. So, I usually check the widgets via cache Google or Yandex. If the widget is displayed on the site page in the search engine cache, then good, and if not, then the site pages may lose several positions in the search engine output.

Drop down menu for Blogger (blogspot)
As many of you know, menus allow users to find the exact content of what they are looking for on the site by navigating through the menu cells in which specific categories are defined. Not so long ago, blogger templates began to change, making them display all their elements just as well, not only on computers but also on mobile phones, so that they can easily navigate through the site.

Mostly similar messages are added to reduce the failure rate. That is, to delay the user on the site. After reading the material, he sees other similar topics and naturally opens them up for review, thereby increasing the percentage of behavioral factors, which is one of the main in improving the rating of the site or blog. Thus satisfied and the owner of the resource and its visitor found important material for themselves.

Numbered page navigation for Blogger
Of the advantages, you can distinguish quick access to the right material, if of course, the webmaster will take care of this setting. In any case, the reader can quickly navigate to their location. Using the page navigation, the user makes real transitions on the site, which increases behavioral factors.

Infinite navigation for Blogger
What I like about this type of navigation is that it doesn't force users to make additional clicks, because they don't like it. Especially when pages are loaded half an hour each. And here you just sit there, grabbing the mouse wheel and browsing the content.
