How To Properly Rename Labels in Blogger

Advertisements
Having a decent category structure on your site makes it easier for your reader to navigate and find the right content. This is the reason why Blogger offers Labels aka categories so that you can properly organize your content in a systematic manner. As your sites started to grow, there is always a room for an improvement. You might need to change the name of your labels or merge them with other labels. In this article, we will show you How to properly rename or Delete Labels in Blogger. 

Blogger offers an enjoyable easy-to-use Label management area Located at Posts >> Labels. Through this option, you can manage, edit or can even quickly delete labels with just few clicks. There is a straightforward way to add/ Remove or rename Labels.

The first thing you need to do is to select a certain label from the “Label Value Area”. On selecting, it would show up all the articles filed under certain Label. Check out the following screenshot for details.


You need to select all posts through the check box allocated next to the title of your posts. After selecting the posts properly, press the “Label action button” present just above the list of your posts. On pressing it a drop down window will appear, select “New Label” and enter a fresh label name which you want to give to your selected posts. Once done, press the OK button to conclude.


After adding a new Label, you would surely want to remove the old one so again select all the posts through the check box present beside the title of your post. Again select the “Label action button” and from the list of your all labels scroll down to the one which you want to remove and just select it and Bam. 


Congratulations, your posts are successfully moved to a new label. Now whenever you will try to access your old label it would display a 404 error, which means it is properly moved to a newer location. 

Precautions:

  1. You can edit up to 50 posts at a time. If you selected more than 50 posts then, it would probably show you some errors. 

  2. Make sure you are selecting the correct Label to edit because if somehow choose a wrong one it might mess up everything.  

  3. Labels have nothing to do with SEO because they are neither get index nor shown in the Search results so renaming, moving or adding a new category would not show any impact on your Search engine traffic.

Yeah, Actually this option was always there but it was allocated in such a manner that you can't guess whats its all about. I Guess, Google need to simplify their interface so that things can be done pretty easily.

You r right; I was much concerned about changing few labels of my blog and several times checked this option but didn't know how to use it. Thanks

I Should have posted this long time ago . Nonetheless, I am glad it helped you!

Thank you so much for this post, I was doing this the long way before.
I have a question and I'm wondering if you can help me? Is there a way to delete a label completely? Say for instance if you have 2 labels with basically the same name like "Facebook Freebies" & another one called "Facebook Coupons & Freebies"? I know I can set one or both of them to not show but that can get confusing when blogging and I forget which one I have set to show on my blog. If there is a way to completely delete one or the other I sure would be grateful for the info on how to do it.
Thanks so much for your blog, I have learned so much and am grateful I found your blog! :)

Yes you can completely Remove a Label. As we have mentioned above Select the Label From the Drop Down Area and it will open all posts under that Label

Now Select All the posts and Simply Through “Label action button” Select that Label which you want to remove. For instance, Here If I want to remove "Blogger Tutorial" I will Select all the post Filled under "Blogger Tutorials" and through "Label Action button" would remove it. Check out the following Screenshot.

Can you tell how to remove Blogger Profile ID LINK from the head of Blogger templates, that is if you opt for Blogger Profile instead of Google Plus Profile.
Thanks will appreciate a reply from your team.

Yes you can remove it, but for that you have to dig into your Template coding.

December 4, 2013 at 9:32 AM

This way you are removing a label from a post, but NOT removing-deleting the actual label from the ones to choose from. Whenever you make a new post, the "unwanted" label will still be there to use it if you want to. How to remove that label definitively? Deleting it from existence? Get rid of it to never see it again? Am I clear enough?

December 30, 2013 at 9:51 AM

Label is kind of brand of any post, it can be used to put rich keyword. That way you can enjoy link juice of your post. Good post, keep sharing.
