What is a Label in Blogger and How to Add and Remove a Label


The "Label" is a known word to all the bloggers or the people who connected to blogging and Google Blogger. Most of the professional bloggers know the exact use of "label" in their blogs. However, new bloggers who do not have much experience in blogging, they sometimes get confused about the use of "labels" on their blogs.

In this post, we are going to discuss the use of labels in Blogger correctly and how to create/add a label to Blogger posts, and I will also show you the process of deleting a label from a blog post.

Use of labels in Blogger


The main purpose of adding labels is to categories the blog posts according to their type and nature. A label describes the subject of a blog post and it helps the users or the visitors to know what the post is about.

For example, there are several posts on this site that I have written to help new bloggers. I have added two to three different labels on each post, such as "Blogger help", "Make Money Online", "Google Adsense" etc. And a visitor can view all the post related to Google AdSense by simply clicking on the label "Google Adsense". You can use any word as a label, but it is very important that the word should be related to the topic of your post. Suppose, if you are writing a post about computer software, then the label should be related to computer software, such as "PC software" or "Free Software" or "Offline Installer" etc. It should not be "Pets", "Black Dog" or "German Shepherd" etc. Also, you can use multiple labels on one post, but the label should also be correlated. And even it is possible, but do not use more than three labels per post.

Adding labels to a post is very important. The labels divide your blog post according to their category. When a user visits your blog to find any information on a topic, a label helps the user to find all other posts related to that particular topic. It increases the page views and also reduces the bounce rate of your blog.


Create a label in Blogger:


It is very easy to create and add one or multiple labels on a Blogger post.
  • Start a new post in Blogger or edit an existing post.
  • Now go to the right of the post editor and click on the Label option under the post settings option.
  • Now type the labels. If you want to use more than one label, then separate each label with a comma (,).
  • Click Done.

Remove a label in Blogger:


Some times, we need to remove some unnecessary labels from our blog. Using unnecessary labels or too many labels helps reduce page views. Removing a label from a particular one post is similar to creating a label. Just edit the post, click Labels, delete the label and click done and update the post. 

But if you want to remove any label completely from all the posts, then first go to Blogger dashboard and click the Post tab. Now click the All Lebel option situated at the top right of the blog posts.

Now click on that label you want to remove. This will hide any posts from Blogger dashboard which don't have that particular label and only will show the posts that include that label or comes within that category which you want to remove. Now click the checkboxes to the left of each post to select the posts. Now click on the Label icon and click the particular label in the drop-down list you want to remove and the label will be removed instantly.
