Tips On How to Add Custom Robots.txt File In Blogger (Blogspot) For Better SEO

To increase your blog performance, you need to optimize it for better SEO. A better SEO will automatically drive organic traffic from search engines to your blog. For Affiliate marketers, this means lots of leads to be generated.  One great step towards a better SEO is adding robots.txt file to your blog. It tells the search engines crawlers about what page to crawl and what not to. In Blogger (Blogspot) we have the option to customize the robots.txt file according to our needs. But before adding it to your blog firstly as a beginner we need to know about what is robots.txt file. So lets start with the tutorial right now.

Robots.txt: is a file which tells the search engine crawlers what page to crawl and not to. Simply, you can exempt your blog demo pages, advertisement page, label pages, archive pages and other which you don't consider as important. Search engine crawlers always scan your robots.txt file before crawling your blog.
So, lets start adding this file to your blog to help you improve your blog SEO.

To add Custom Robots.txt file to your blog, follow the simple steps mentioned below:
1. Go to and login.
2. Navigate to Settings >> Search Preferences ››

3. Crawlers and indexing ›› Custom robots.txt ›› Edit ›› Yes

4. Now paste the below robots.txt file code in the box to look like this  

Copy and paste below code into the box

User-agent: Mediapartners-Google 
User-agent: * 
Disallow: /search
Allow: /

5. Remember to change the highlighted url ( with your blog address.
 Disallow: /search in the above code is telling search engines not to crawl any of your blog page with /search.... attached to your URL e.g.

Before you click to save, please read the below explanation of the above code to understand what you are about to do.

Allow: / part of the above code is telling search engines to crawl all pages with the / sign attached, but without the word "search" attached to the above sign. Any other word can come after /, but definitely not the "search" word.

max-results=200 is telling search engines to index the recent 200 updated posts on your blog.
Are you ok with the code?
6. Click on Save Changes button.
You are all done.
Simply add /robots.txt after your blog address and you will be shown your robots.txt file. 
Take a look at the below example of my blog:

I hope you have easily added the custom robots.txt file to your blog? Please click below to share this post with friends.

How To Add Free SSL Or HTTPS On Your Custom Domain On Blogger
The long awaited option has been made available by Blogger. For those who still have not heard, Blogger has released free SSL (https) Certificate for Custom Domains . This means that you, as a blogger, can easily get free SSL certificate directly from Blogger. Before now, Blogger only supported SSL for Blogspot sub-domains and when bloggers with custom domains wanted to use secure https (SSL) option for their blogger custom domain, then, they would have to purchase it from SSL providers. The good news is, from now, Google's Blogger itself provides SSL certificate for custom domains too.

Many domain name registration or hosting companies offer free coupons for cheap SSL certificates, you can also use GoDaddy and Name cheap to enjoy free coupons monthly. Now, are you ready? Let's check out its benefits and how you can enable it and make your Blogger blog more secure and Google friendly.

Before using Free SSL certificate for your blog, you need to know what exactly is SSL and how can it benefit you.

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and this ensures the security of a website with a user or visitor. We usually do the online transactions, fill our personal information in desired forms  and so we do to send our information to the web servers. So we need a secure connection in order to protect our data and this is where the SSL certificate matters. With SSL certificate, HTTPS establishes an encrypted connection between a web server and a user, so any third person can't access the particular information.

Moreover, most of the sites have a unique SSL Certificate and this helps in identifying a secure connection. Any site that is pretending to have a secure SSL, HTTPS connection, and its certificate is not verified or does not match then your browser will show a warning message. 

You must know that Google gives a slight boost to the rank of sites which are HTTPS enabled. But surely Google will increase the effect of this “boost” and of course, even a slight boost in SERP is essential to overcome our competitors.
Please Keep Following Points in mind before enabling SSL (HTTPS) :

=> Your traffic will be down for few days until Google correctly indexes all your URLs with HTTPS. During this process, if you make any mistake, then your blog can go down. So make these changes on such time when no or very few readers or visitor are reading your blog.

You’ll have to remove all the widgets that are hosted/attached to non-SSL hosts as they won't work. I will surely provide the details of all the necessary changes in future posts .

Roughly, a basic SSL certificate costs about $10/year but now, Blogger offers a free SSL to all its Blogger users. No matter if your blog is hosted on Blogspot, Blogger has released free SSL (https) Certificate for Custom Domains  too. So from now, you can easily get free SSL certificate directly from Blogger.

1. Sign in to Blogger
2. Now, Select a blog on which you would like to enable HTTPS.
3. Go to Settings > Basic > HTTPS Settings.

4. In HTTPS Availability, select YES.

It might take some time to enable HTTPS (SSL) on your blog. So wait for few minutes and let another HTTPS redirect option be ready for enabling. This is the message you might get after enabling HTTPS Availability 

5. HTTPS redirect will help you in getting your HTTP traffic redirect to your new secured HTTPS server, so don't forget to wait sometime before you enable it.

Congrats! Now your blog has a unique SSL certificate which will surely enhance your SERP and provide an extra layer of security to your blog. Now check your blog with https:// and enjoy free SSL support from blogger dancing on your blogger custom domain enabled blog.subdomain or a custom domain.

Banky W Announced His Desire To Serve As Federal Legislator - Nigeria

BankyW, Nigerian songwriter and artist, has announced his intention to serve as a federal legislator, representing Eti-Osa local government area of Lagos State. .
He made the declaration Saturday at the debut convention of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP), a political party founded in 2017 by a consortium of youth associations.
Banky W has officially joined Politics declaring his intention yesterday at an event in Lagos. The singer, director and film producer gave a touching story to back up the reason he wants to run for office, explaining he knows what poverty means too. Banky explained his father is an orphan and his mom was born with no father-figure….
The singer who is running for Federal House of Representative under Modern Democratic Party explained how he attended Corona primary school but lived in a sinking house, making him friends of the rich during the day, and at night, friends of street children…

Below is his FULL SPEECH as he declares for office.

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen… my name is Olubankole Wellington.
I’d like to start by saying a very special thank you to who is to me, on the inside and out, the most beautiful and incredible person in the world.. my wife, Mrs Adesua Etomi-Wellington.

For myself, and the team behind this MDP movement – the Modern Democratic Party, I can honestly say, that tonight is a dream come true. I’ve seen that happen many times, you know? I’ve seen dreams come true; and it’s amazing everytime. I am, infact, living proof, that the unlikeliest of dreams can indeed come true.
In 1981, I was born to a father from Lagos, and a mother from Cross Rivers – both of whom struggled and were it not for the Grace of God, had no business receiving University educations abroad. My Dad was an orphan, who was shuffled from relative to relative, and depended largely on a combination of street smarts, book smarts, and athletic abilities, to put himself through school, using a combination of scholarships, student loans, and multiple part time jobs.

My mother’s story was not much different… born in Calabar, to a single mom, she was sent off to live with her relatives in Lagos. Through her belief in God, a lot of hard work, and sheer force of will, following her secondary education, she too earned and worked her way through University.
Neither of them grew up in particularly fortunate circumstances… but they held on to a set of beliefs that I have since inherited… we believe that what you lack in wealth, privilege and connections, you can make up for with hope, hard work, and determination. My parents taught me that if you believe in God, believe in yourself, never give up hope and work hard, dreams that seem impossible, CAN indeed come true.

In 1985, our family returned to Lagos. Like most families with a limited income, sacrifices had to be made. My parents realized at that time, that they couldn’t afford to rent a nice flat AND send us to a good school at the same time - it would be one or the other. And so we attended Corona Primary school in Ikoyi, while we lived on the ground floor flat of a sinking building in Akoka, Yaba. We were classmates with children of the rich by day, and playmates with children of the street by night. I remember during the peak of the raining seasons, our flat would literally get flooded and come up to about the knee level, and so Momsie would wake us up early to scoop water in buckets out of our home, before heading off to school and work.

But I went from Corona Primary school to Home Science Secondary school, and in 1999, just like my parents did, I gained admission into a University in the USA that the family really could not afford. But again, just like my parents did… by the grace of God, I used a combination of scholarships, student loans, and every job under the sun that you can imagine.. to put myself through school. It took focus, prayers, a lot of hard work - everything from working in Mcdonald’s restaurant, to at one point being a door to door knives salesman – and a whole lot of hope. That courage to Hope in spite of circumstances is what helped me earn a Bachelor’s Degree from one of the top Engineering schools in the USA.

Hope is what my best friend and I held on to in 2002, when we were crazy enough to start a record label in my University Dorm Room. We had no idea what we were doing, or what it would take… we didn’t know one single person in the music business home or abroad… but that’s kind of what hope and faith is all about, isn’t it? It’s about taking that first step even when you don’t see the entire ladder, or where it leads. You dream big but you start small, and you never let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big.
It’s incredible what can be achieved with a dream, the willingness to work hard, and the courage to hold on to hope in spite of the odds. I’ve seen rock bottom create champions. I’ve seen grass watered until it becomes known as grace. “Hope” is almost always the common denominator. Hope is what helped a former househelp/plantain seller and a kid born blind at birth become 2 of the most internationally acclaimed and successful Music Producers, from this same Nigeria. Hope is what convinced 2 young Nigerians that they could take a company that at one point, wasn’t worth the paper it was registered on, and build it into one of the foremost Media and Entertainment Empires in the country. Hope is what convinced me that a scrawny little kid from Ojuelegba Shitta could one day become the biggest Artist on the African continent. Hope is what has helped me through 3 separate battles with skin cancer.
And to me, that’s what tonight is all about… it’s about this generation having the courage to hope again, and the will to work towards making our dreams for Nigeria, a reality. That’s what we are attempting to do with MDP – the Modern Democratic Party.

You see, subconsciously, we’ve kind of given up, haven’t we? As a generation, we have essentially accepted that things will never change. We’ve lost hope. It’s why more people vote in Big Brother Africa than in our General Elections. It’s why most of us are too busy to register for a PVC, but we’ll stand in line for days at the VISA Center – further proof that nowadays, for the average citizen, the ultimate Nigerian Dream is the one in which you get to escape Nigeria.

For many years, I’ve been a vocal critic of leadership and bad governance in Nigeria, and a vocal proponent of young people participating in the political process. And yet, the turn out is never good enough, because we simply just don’t care enough to do what it takes.

I realized that all my years of Activism in Nigeria, didn’t amount to much more than my plight as an Arsenal fan. You see, as Arsenal fans, we love our club, but we knew it was time for change. We complained, we tweeted, we held up banners at the stadium, we shouted and hashtagged for many years. But until the people who were a part of the system - the board, the shareholders, the executives etc - until THEY decided that it was time for change, all of that noise would not have amounted to anything. Our former coach could have remained in that position until the day that he died.. and there’s not a damn thing any of us could have done about it.

The same can be said for Nigeria. Until the day that we decide as a generation, to get involved with the affairs of our country, nothing will EVER really change. The time has come for us to play our part. We can no longer afford to remain mere spectators. Getting a voter’s card alone is no longer enough; because that does not give you a say in putting up the kind of candidates that you believe in. We must take things one step further by building a new political platform for this generation. One that is not built for selfish interests.. but one that is built off of a shared vision and ideals. One that will put up the right kind of candidates: people with Integrity, the right intentions and the intellectual capacity to lead. People with vision and the ability to execute.
Make no mistake, WE ARE a generation in a battle for the soul and direction of our country, BUT we ARE stuck in a lose-lose situation. But when you’re in a lose-lose situation, you don’t pick sides. You change the situation. It’s time for us to do that. It’s time for us to hope and believe again. It’s time for us to work and build.

25 years ago, the majority of Nigerians overwhelmingly bought into a vision called “Hope ‘93”. We had the freest and fairest elections in our Nation’s history, and elected a great man called MKO Abiola into the Presidency. May his soul rest in peace, and his sacrifice not be in vain. Our Country’s trajectory might have been very different, had he been allowed to live and assume his rightful position. Back then, it didn’t even matter that he fielded an all Muslim ticket… because poverty, lack, and suffering do not discriminate. Unemployment, lack of infrastructure, a declining educational system, poor healthcare, gender inequality… these are issues all Nigerians are struggling with whether we are Christian, Muslim, or Atheist… Yoruba or Igbo, Hausa or Ijaw, Edo or Delta, Efik or kanuri.
Our generation does not really believe in the existing powers that be on both sides of the divide.. and for good reason. We have been taken advantage of and lied to.. we are tired and disenfranchised. We are frustrated and suspicious. We don’t believe in our current political options, so it’s time for us to build our own. We want a seat at the table of Governance in Nigeria, but we must bring our own chair. Because if we are to get in to leadership, it MUST be on our own terms and conditions, with our own vision and set of ideals… otherwise we risk being marginalized and handcuffed by the same systems we are criticizing.

And this vision is for beyond 2019, and for more than just the office of the President. It’s about every electable office in this country. We must start now to build a movement towards 2023 and beyond, otherwise, in every election we will find ourselves in this exact same spot.

We want to fix Nigeria, but we must begin by rebuilding our communities. Everybody seems so obsessed with the Presidential race – it’s one of the most frequent suggestions I get – “Banky W, run for President”. But see, like I said earlier, I do believe in dreaming big, but I believe in starting small, and working your way up. Hope is what we needed in ’93. 25 years later, hope is what we’ll need in 2019. And it is with the greatest sense of humility, purpose and destiny, that I announce my candidacy for the 2019 Federal House of Representatives, in the Eti Osa constituency of Lagos State.

I have spent the majority of my life in Eti-Osa. It is where I went to Primary school and part of Secondary School. It is where I have built my home, and my business; it is where I plan to spend the rest of my life, with my wife and the children I pray God blesses us with. Most of the friends I have, most of the businesses I admire, and even most of the businesses that inspire our entire country are based here. The economy of Eti Osa is central to the Nigerian Economy, with a GDP contribution that dwarfs several states combined. And yet in spite of all this, it’s no longer a secret that much like Nigeria at large, the people in our neighborhoods are yearning for better representation, across local, state, and federal levels. Eti-Osa is infact, a microcosm of Nigeria as a whole. It is home to people from various backgrounds... it is home to the Market women in Ajah, the billionaires in Banana Island, the creatives living in Lekki, and the multicultural ethnicities in Obalende. We have people from various tribes and tongues, people from all walks of life.. extreme wealth, and extreme poverty. There are things that we should be proud of, and there are plenty areas for improvement. This is the headquarters of Corporate Nigeria, a model that has continued to encourage investors both local and foreign to sow into our country. And yet we still have residents who cannot afford 3 square meals a day. Everyone knows that we have generated trillions of Naira at our toll gates, yet we still have potholes. We have the very best and worst of education in our school system and the same could be said of the healthcare in our hospitals. However this is not the time to point fingers and accuse. It is the time for all our leaders and citizens to come together, across party lines, and work with each other to love, rescue and rebuild our society. If Nigeria is to work as a country.. then Eti Osa must first work as a community. We must team up, with each of us playing our part, to make this the most desirable local Government in the country, and that will inspire others to do the same. My legislative agenda and detailed manifesto will be shared on my website, and I encourage you to please take a look at it in the coming weeks and engage me on the issues of job creation, gender equality, youth inclusion and empowerment, affordable healthcare, and education. I would love to hear from my constituents, current leaders in Government, regardless of background or affiliation – we can do this, if we do it together. That is how we can fix Nigeria, one community at a time.

Our generation needs a realistic rallying point. We need to begin in community, earn our way into the system and up the ladder. We need someone to stick their neck out and pave the way. The problem is that we’ve always looked only to our leaders for change… instead of looking in the mirror and at the neighbors around us. Isn’t it ironic that we are the ones we’ve been waiting for all along?

I have shared this vision with quite a few people. Some have been incredibly supportive, but some have advised against it. I am under no illusions that this run will be easy. Considering the machines we are going up against, some THINK it is impossible.

They said we don’t have the money to run.. we say we our strength lies in our numbers. They said we don’t have the structure, we say we will attempt to build it. They said “what if you lose”? I say, what if we win?

You see, my entire life has been a story of just dreaming dreams, praying about those dreams, setting goals, and working until they come true. I can live with trying and failing. I can not live with not trying.

So while we may not have a godfather, we do have God. And we have vision. And intellectual capacity. And integrity. And the right intentions. And last but not least, a whole lot of hope.
At the end of the day, hope may be all we have, but I believe that it is all we need. Thank you and God bless Nigeria.

Author's thought: He might just be the extra spice we need to make things right. For too long we have had too many old blood controlling the country. Perhaps, his addition might bring something fresh and new to the country's system.

Citizens not happy with government's plan to change Social Security Check name to Federal Benefit Payment.
Some American citizens are not pleased with the rumor going on. Some citizens who feel they know their rights, are saying that the Social Security Check is not a benefit, but their rights.
Photo credit: iStock

And according to report from Shirley Sandifer, a Facebook user; The Social Security check is now (or soon will be) referred to as a "Federal Benefit Payment?" I'll be part of the one percent to share this info. I am forwarding this message because it touched a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you. Please keep sharing this post until everyone all over the world has read it.

The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a "Federal Benefit Payment."  This isn't a benefit. It is our money paid out of our earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.

If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that's close to $180,000 invested in Social Security.
If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both you and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you'd have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!

This is your personal investment. Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month. That's almost three times more than today's average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration. (Google it – it’s a fact).

And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you're 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.

Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger "Ponzi scheme" than Bernie Madoff ever did. They took our money and used it elsewhere. They forgot (oh yes, they knew) that it was OUR money they were taking. They didn't have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them. And they didn't pay interest on the debt they assumed. And recently they've told us that the money won't support us for very much longer.

But is it our fault they misused our investments? And now, to add insult to injury, they're calling it a "benefit", as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.
Just because they borrowed the money doesn't mean that our investments were a charity!

Let's take a stand. We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.

Let's find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.
Then call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income.
99% of people won't share this. Will you?

You just heard Shirley's voice. When will the world hear your voice on ?

Did Your Phone Device Fall Into Water? How To Bring Wet Phone Back To Life
Have you ever had your phone swim in a pool of water? Many people have got their mobile devices damaged as a result of this. Information, people say, is power. With this article, you need not be afraid, if your phone device falls into water and gets soaked. 

This simple trick works like magic and it is unbelievable. To many of our readers who are not Africans, this might sound or look strange. We will be working with GARRI or RICE. Before we hit the start button, let's know what GARRI is.

Garri is a carbohydrate based food consumed in many West African countries, Nigeria in particular. Processed from Cassava tubers, Garri in its raw form is creamy-white or light-yellowish flour with a slightly fermented flavor.

The two main varieties of Garri are:
1.The "White" Garri

2. The "Yellow" Garri

Essentially, both varieties of Garri have the similar processing methods; the yellow color can be achieved simply by adding a few drops of palm-oil to the cassava flour during the frying/drying stage. 

Today, we won't be talking on how to make GARRI. So, let's go out of the lane. What you need: GARRI in large quantity, container with cover or nylon bag, or RICE in large quantity.

Take the phone out of water and remove the phone battery, SIM card and memory card. Leave the phone opened this way: 

Now, bury the phone inside the GARRI or rice completely. Cover the container or tie the nylon bag. Leave this for 12 hours and insert your battery into the exhumed phone and hoola! There you go.

Note: First, check your battery to see if it is soaked too. If the battery is not affected, then, you are good to go.

Man Shares Receipts and Screenshot Of Chat With An Offer Of N100k To Have Gay Sex - Nigeria News
In a religious country like Nigeria, gay sex or gay marriage is not accepted. It is not something you do in the open, but in the dark. Yesterday, Twitter user @Sesnell, went on his timeline to accuse a twitter celeb of attacking gays and homosexuals while himself is a down low chronic homosexual. Yesterday's hoopla has prompted another Twitter user to call someone else out.  This seems like a social media war. 

@Olaminrewaju left a comment on his thread accusing another twitter user of being a down low gay man who offered him N100k to have gay sex with him. Hmm! Olaminrewaju shared a screenshot of their chat below:

Now the accused, @DrightSauce has released screenshots showing his exchange between Olaminrewaju and himself. Olaminrewaju has since deleted his twitter account. 
Follow the photos below:
