Now after adding the above code replace all the places marked as red with your       details as below. For one's who already have the meta codes in your template, you might be having as XXXX. Replace the XXXX as shown below.
.

YOUR BLOG's KEYWORDS HERE

Add keywords that relate to your blog. For eg, these are the keywords i added in for my blog

Personal Blog, Travel, Photography, Lifestyle, Grow your hair strong and long, Get a flawless skin, skin care, Photography tips, Blogging tips, Affiliates, Youtube, SEO Meta Tags

YOUR GOOGLE+ NAME HERE

SEO Meta Tags for Blogger-Blogspot and How to Fill in your XXXX in the SEO Meta Tags

Go into your Google + profile, and find your name there. The one that is highlighted as yellow in the link, copy that and paste it in your code. Note that the code already has a plus sign (+) before the place where the name is to be placed. Don't Remove that ( + ). Add just your name there. In my care its +gayatrivenkat

YOUR NAME HERE / your name on your google+

Here you can add what ever your name is or the name you have mentioned in the google+ profile. For Eg. My name is GayuVenkat, But my google+ profile name is "Vanilla Bean" Which is same as my youtube channel name . Hence i prefer to add my g+ name 


YOUR FACEBOOK ADMIN ID


SEO Meta Tags for Blogger-Blogspot and How to Fill in your XXXX in the SEO Meta Tags


Go into your facebook page, and in the bottom of the about tab you will find your page id. Supposing you are linking to your personal profile, Go to this link http://findmyfbid.com/ and type in your profile link https://www.facebook.com/your profile name and get the id. Note that if in your privacy settings, Do you want search engines outside of Facebook to link to your profile? should be turned on for you to obtain the fd id for your personal profile.


YOUR TWITTER NAME HERE


SEO Meta Tags for Blogger-Blogspot and How to Fill in your XXXX in the SEO Meta Tags

Go into twitter, and you can find your name here, not that u must put in your @name in the code, along with the @ symbol.


For google webmaster verification code, bing webmaster code, alexa id/code, and Facebook app id i have done a separate post for each of them as each one has a few steps to be done.


Note : These changes will take upto 3 days to get reflected on your blogs and posts.

Also, how can I stop my blog name from appearing before the post title when I share my posts on social media? I want the blog name to appear after the post title or not appear at all.

Thanks

Hi Jenne,

1. Thanks for your feedback and appraisals :) Yes even i did struggle a lot when i wanted to implement this for my blog itself, which triggered me to make a post myself elaborate to help my fellow bloggers.

2. Regarding other app id's im sorry i totally forgot. Have it as drafts. Will post it all in a week. Thanks for remainding. Do keep following for more posts.

3. For your blogname to appear after the post title, just add the complete SEO code into your template and fill out the Red marks. This will itself give the result that you ask for.

Stay in touch... :)

I've filled out the red marks. That blog name part is not included in the red ones. Everything else is working apart from that one. It's really affecting my organic search traffic. Please help.

Your blog name in the sense? Do you mean if you share your post it will be displayed as "Post XYZ" by "your blog name" ?? if so this can be specified in that line which tells add your name

meta content='YOUR NAME HERE / your name on your google+' name='Author'

Here just input your name or your blog name as per your wish. Note that this will take at least 3 days to get into effect. It took me 3-4 days to work.

Url with keywords is just a part of the seo. It can help but it is not the only factor which can rank your website and bring it in google search. It ads to the extra seo. Find more discussion regarding url seo at http://QuestionSignal.com.
