I have been asked numerous times by clients who wished to know how to revamp/add/delete their labels or categories for their blog post in blogger blog. So I thought, where better than to just put it here at LadyJava’s Lounge so that you, my readers, might benefit too.

Firstly, think of label as a filing system. A generic filing system. So you would label this post for instance as Blogger Tutorial and/or Blogging but you would NOT label it as Remove Labels or Add labels.. See the difference? Labels make it easier for visitors to navigate around your blog so unless your blog is all about the different kinds of flowers (Jasmine, Rose, Lilies), a label call FLOWERS would suffice.

Also please remember, labels are being controlled by the post, so you can’t delete the labels but once a no post bears that label, that label would disappear from your list. So essentially, you are amending your blog post label and not vice versa.

Here goes..

  1. Go to your blogger dashboard and click on “EDIT POST”
  2. On the left side of the table, you will see labels and the number of post that has that label on it. On the right side you will see post with the labels being displayed in green next to it
  3. Go through all your labels and decide what you want to do and how you want to categorized your post. If you see a label with just one post, decide if you need that label or can you class it under an existing label.
  4. Now click on any label.
  5. On the right hand side now, all post relating to the label would be displayed.
  6. Click in the square right next to all the post you want to change. I would suggest at this time to click one first.
  7. Now, do you noticed the dropdown menu just on top of the table? Click on the arrow and scroll down inside this box, you will see..

    Dropdown Menu

    The Dropdown Menu

    • Apply Label” in bold. This is all the labels that is available at your blog. So if you want to add an existing label to the post, just click the relevant label and it would be added to the post.
    • Scroll down further. Just before “Remove Label” you will see “New label” – this is what you click if you want to add a totally new label to the post
    • Right after that, you will see “Remove Label“. This is the label that is currently being used for that particular post and if you want to remove any labels from that post, just choose whichever label it is and click it
  8. Please remember all change are immediate the moment you click on a label. There is no prompt asking if you are sure of your action. Having said that, do not worry, you will not NEVER lose any post in your blog this way. The post would just be under a different label.

I hope this  helps and let me know if you find the tutorial useful :)
