How To Declare Website Language In Blogger

Do you ever thought of declaring the language for your website? Declaring a website language doesn’t means anything to the readers because they already know what language you are using and that’s why they are reading your content. Declaring a language helps the search engines to detect the content language faster. So it means that it is a good way of Search Engine Optimization. Your content will be indexed faster because it is now more easily crawled by crawlers.

Most of the blogging platform have built-in language declaration facility but, blogger doesn’t have this feature. We have to do this manually in a blogger blog by adding HTML or XML attribution. In this small guide, you will learn how to add language attribution in your blog.

Step 1 : Open your blogger account. Go to Template and edit the template in HTML form.

Step 2 :  Search for <html tag and paste the following line just below it.

lang=”en-US” xml:lang=”en-US”

After pasting the above code in your template, your template will look like something given below.

<html  lang=”en-US” xml:lang=”en-US” 
b:version=’2′ class=’v2′ expr:dir=’data:blog.languageDirection’ xmlns=’http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml’ 
xmlns:b=’http://www.google.com/2005/gml/b’ 
xmlns:data=’http://www.google.com/2005/gml/data’


Step 3 : Save the template and you are done with it.

Note : Change the language code ‘en’ with the desired language code of yours.
