How to Change Published Post URL in Blogger

How to Change Published Post URL in Blogger - URL or "Uniform Resource Locator" is an address used on a website or blog. With this address, user can go to the location where the page is loaded. By placing the URL in the search tabs column of the browser, everyone will be able to access the website page contained in the URL correctly.

In operation, Blogger (blogspot) users can automatically determine the URL address on the article creation page according to the title of the article that has been created. Blogger (blogspot) users can also set the blog's URL address as they wish, namely by pressing the "Permalink" menu on the right side of the article creation page, then selecting "Custom Permalink".

In the Blogger platform, users cannot customize the URL address for posting articles as a whole. The two numeric codes separated by a slash (/) indicate the year and month the post was created at that time. Both of these are permanently determined by default by Blogger, blogger platform users cannot change both. 

Blogger platform users can only customize the URL address after the two number codes mentioned above. Make sure the blog post URL address matches the keywords in the blog title because that will make it easier for search engines to find the blog keywords. Make sure each word in the blog post URL address is separated by a dash (-), and try not to use certain numbers, symbols, and characters in customizing the blog URL address.
