Modify Blogger Blog Post's Permalink (With Date) The Right Way
Change blog posts permalink

Ask any WordPress blogger, what's the best thing that he's enjoying in "WordPress" software.

He'd say: Freedom to change Permalinks.

Yeah, maybe he's right.

We can't change the format of permalinks.

But...we can change the permalinks and dates in them, too! How? Keep reading!

What Do You Mean By 'The Right Way'?

The right way, because here I'm not just going to tell you that how can you change permalink, but also that how you're going to redirect your old post URL to the new one permanently (301).

Benefits?
  • Biggest advantage: Backlinks will still work. When you permanently redirect a page to another, the link equity or say the link juice gets transferred. So, if you'd some backlinks, they'll still help you to rank.
  • No, loss of rank: If your blog post is ranking, you would think that if you would change URL of the blog post, then the ones who are coming from Google would be lost and it would hurt your SEO.
    Nope. Because we're redirecting the old URL permanently, your Google visitors would still be able to reach your blog post.
Note: After a week (or 3-4 days) your previous URL will get de-indexed by Google and your new URL will get indexed and will be in its earlier position (you'll have to have patience.)

FAQ:
        1. Why change permalinks?
        A: Sometimes we have to change post titles and to keep permalink and post title's meaning synced, changing permalink will be beneficial.
        2. Why modify the date?
        A. To keep evergreen blog posts look evergreen in SERPs. :)

How To Do This?

Okay so let's suppose that you have a blog post and its URL is this:
[code]http://www.bloggerguider.com/2015/08/how-to-create-ready-to-edit-text-or.html[/code]
And you want to change it to this URL:
[code]http://www.bloggerguider.com/2017/01/how-to-create-ready-to-edit-text-table.html[/code]
Now, the first step to start this process is reverting the blog post into a draft, and you can easily do this by clicking the button "Revert to Draft".
revert to draft
changing permalink
  • Okay, now you can click the "Permalink" option in the "Post Settings" (right) and you'd see that now you can now edit the permalink.
  • Firstly, note down the current Permalink of the blog post.
  • Then change the permalink words.
  • To modify year and month in the permalink, just click on "Schedule" option and choose the date according to your needs and instead of clicking the "Publish" button, press "Save" button.
  • Refresh the page.
  • Again click on that Permalink button.
    At this point, you'll notice that the year and month numbers have been changed in the Permalink.
  • Not publish the blog.
Congratulations. =)

You've changed the permalink of your blog post.

Redirecting Older Post URL To New

This one is an important part of this process, so be sure not to skip it.

To redirect, we're going to use Blogger's own "Custom Redirects" feature which you may first under Search Preference in settings.

Steps are simple, and here they're:
  • Go to Settings > Search Preferences > Errors and redirections > Custom Redirects
  • Click on "Edit."
  • Click on "New Redirect."
  • You'll be given two text fields.
  • In the first one, enter the previous permalink (without domain)
  • Check the "Permanent" option.
  • And in the second one, enter the new permalink.
Congratulations again! =)

How To Check If It's Really Permanently Redirecting And Status Code is 301?

  • Go to https://httpstatus.io/;
  • Enter the blog post's old URL;
  • You'll receive something like the following results:
And so, you've successfully changed the permalink with dates! :)

Final Words

The Working Guide To Get Grammarly Premium Account For Free
Viewers Outside India"
Sorry, but you'll not be able to use Grammarly account for Free using FlikOver, because they recently told us that there resources are limited and they can't allow more people outside India. Account made earlier will still work, but new accounts won't work with Grammarly. You can try using VPN but I'm not sure it would work.
How To Get Grammarly Account For FREE (no access code)

Grammarly for $15?

Nope.

This is not about that.

This method is purely free.

No wait.
No subscription.

How To Get It?

Simple as ABC. :)

Just follow these steps are you are ready to go:
  • Go to Flikover
  • Sign up using your email.
  • Now you have to install two Chrome Extensions. First & Second.
  • Now open this link.
:D

Note: You will not be able to log in, if you're using "Data Saver" or any proxy to access Flikover.

Getting this page?

Issue in Grammarly
Many of our users reported that they've been receiving this page whenever they visit Flikover.
We talked with Flikover team and they said that the users who're not able to login (getting this page) can contact them via there facebook page and they would provide them a unique login ID using which, they'd be able to login and use Grammarly.


Well, tell me, What's Grammarly?

I wrote the steps to get the Grammarly account for free, firstly, in the post because there would be many people, "just seeing the steps". So for them, I made this post more comfortable. :)

Now, if you still do not know what ACTUALLY Grammarly is, then, my friend, you're missing an incredible tool that can improve your English a lot.

See, everyone is not a fluent English speaker, like me.

And such people make Grammar mistakes often.

And Grammarly is a tool which helps you improve your Grammar, and not JUST Grammar, but also the readability of the post, by suggesting some things, like removing overused words and words like "Actually" etc.

If you are a blogger, then it worths a try. Seriously.

What's Flikover? What Else You Can Do Using It?

Okay, so interested to know about Flikover?

Well, they are a group people (I think, as they do not have an "About" page).

Now what they do is, they buy an account, (may be Grammarly's, using an access code) and then share it among their users using the proxy.

And Flikover is not limited to Grammarly. You can buy SEMRush account, Ahref accounts too, at low prices. So, you can check them out too.

That's All

This was a trick that I'd found on a Facebook group, but I can't remember which one. By the way, I'm thinking to publish a blog post about most helpful Facebook Groups that you can find, from which you can ask for help, anytime. It should be coming out soon! :)

Do comment if you get any problem, or just wanna say hi. :)
