Want to remove date and HTML extension from your blogger permalink, check out this article which helps you to remove date and HTML extension in Blogger permalinks.
Everybody wants to remove the date and HTML extension from their blogger permalink, but they do not get the right information on it.
In the previous article, I had shown to you 12 Quick Methods To Improve Website Speed in Blogger. But in this article, I will show you how to remove the date and HTML extension in blogger. Blogger although is a great source for creating a money-making blog for free but it has certain limitations
One of the limitations in the blogger is the permalink option which is not available to us to change the permalink.
The blogger has only a default permalink (https://www.example.com/year/month/post-title.html) Whereas it is possible in WordPress to change the permalink easily without having any plugin install or without any implementation of the code.
1) What Is Permalinks?
Basically, a permalink is a URL structure of a particular website. If you consider this page itself, it has an Url structure (https://www.shoutmeback.com/remove-date-and-html-extension-in-blogger)
The above URL is nothing but a permanent location of my post. Therefore, it is called as permalinks
2) Why To Remove Date From Blogger Permalink?
It is necessary to remove the date and not use any special symbol in the blogger permalink for search engine optimization.
Search engines also have a ranking factor algorithm regarding your blog permalink. The permalink should not be the length and must not contain any date format and a special symbol. Recently, Backlinko had analyzed over 1 million SERP’s (search engine result pages).
They found that the post which does not contain any date or month or any other format in the permalinks ranks better than others in comparison to other competitions. So, if you want to rank well on Google, you will have to remove the date present in blogger permalinks.
3) Why To Remove HTML Extension From Blogger Permalink?
Google and other search engine algorithm to rank a website change year by year. Recently, google hummingbird algorithm had changed a lot of factors to rank a website up to 200+ factors.
One of the factors included was no extension in the URL. Leaving an extension in the URL is bad for SEO. Also, when you scan your website for SEO through CheckBot, you will notice that it will display “Don’t Use Extension” during analyzing the SEO of your site.
You can also notice any google related sites like Google Adsense community center etc, none of the sites contain webpage extension in their URL.
4) How To Remove Date and HTML Extension In Blogger?
But, there is no guarantee of how well it will affect your SEO. It could be good or it could be worse as the code developer had not described it as safe or bad for SEO.
But you can implement and try it all by yourself and if you think that it is creating any problem remove the code. Before you try to implement the code, take a backup of your theme.
To create a backup of your theme, follow these steps:-

Thats Not work properly can any one guide me how to put teh code
why are you making fool nothing happened i had applied this on my site
Bro i think you had made some mistake while implementing it. It is working.
Hi thanks for the quick reply sir but what happened was I had done the steps perfectly. Yes, I had changed the permalink exactly for example (site name).blogspot. com/2019/rejirajonline then after when the page loaded I could see the URL as (site name).blogspot.com/rejirajonline in the address after then when I copied the 2nd URL example and searched it returned to 404, But now I have no regret because I have learned something from you. I would now rather stick to what blogger.com provides. Thanks once again
Yes the Bloggers own permalink is better option but everybody wants to remove it. Therefore I had too mentioned in the post that Blogger Permalink is still better.
i’m afraid, after changing it, will it affect my built backlinks?
It will not make any effect on backlinks but if you had made backlink for your mobile version i.e ?m=1 then there is a chance that it will affect the backlink.
This process of removing the date and HTML extension should be done when you create a blog.
you mean when I create new blog post?
very helpful article thanks for sharing
thanks so much it worked
I have try to use this code in my website http://www.tech-spots.com
Really it’s working good but when i refresh my page or open in new window without date url once error show 404 page not available then loaded, might be it’s effect in SEO, I am not sure about it, what I did I had removed script and leave it as normal
anyway thank you very much
Yeah it might create some error in SEO.
Are you using this trick on shoutmeback?
No I was using it when my site was hosted on Blogger.
does this effect seo? Will there be any change in page ranking?
let’s suppose I applied this method as you mentioned in your blog, it means removing .html is the changing of URL. So will it be necessary to redirect all the old .html URLs to the latest updated URLs? Waiting for your reply. Thanks
It will redirect to new url. But it might affect your SEO.
thankyou so much, worked well. But will this affect SEO ?
It worked well. But found some problem. After the content on the page is shown and reload the page, it shows an error message for a while and then again reloads to show the content. If I give my URL without .html to anyone and they enter the URL then the error message is shown initially. My site is ujwalamsal.com.np
What a fantastic website! This is so helpful information. I am just over one month into blogging and have achieved some early milestones. Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading more of your articles that you’ve linked in here.
No one can “shoutyouback” because of so useful content you are publishing for us in (Blogging Guides) categories even 8 more on your website.
“Do I need to redirect published Url after Remove Date In Blogger through the above code?
Is there any ranking decreasing effect after removing dates from Url?”
Thanks hope your reply.
No Google will automatically redirect it. But try it at your own risk. The reason behind that is many blogger sees positive impact while some sees negative impact. Just always watch your search console if any problem occurs in ranking. If it occurs then please remove the code. That’s the reason I told to take the backup of your theme before changing any code in it.
I am new to blogging.
I was in search of this thing. I have already seen this code on quora and all but was hesitant to do. after reading you post I got the confidence to do it. Thank You. It worked well.
