How to make categories in blogspot

     When you open the Dashboard of your blog, you'll notice that there are two options available in the left list to write an article, either by choosing post or page. You can write an article as a post by clicking on new post or as a page by clicking on new page. What is the difference between two options and when do we have to use each of them? To determine that you should know if you want to write several articles related to a particular topic, in other words articles that need to be classified under a certain name; for example if you want to write several articles about cooking then choosing post option is the best in this case. Post option provides you with a tool called label; Label tool is used to classify several articles under certain names or Labels (for more explanations see below and Fig. 2). In contrast, you can use page option to write articles which do not need any classification or appearance in the news feed of the site, such as writing a page about privacy policy, about us or contact us; the presence of these pages are needed to get Google adsense approval.

Labels, where you enter the term connects all the articles that talk about the same subject; for example (Fig.2)  Label baby clothes was used to link all the articles that talk about the subject of children's clothing.

     You can also re-use labels that have been previously used in the description of the previous articles just by clicking on it (Fig. 2); for example, you can click on the label of coffee types, to appear inside the labels box, to link this article with previous articles of the same blog and classified under label coffee types.

    Finally, select either update for re-publication of the article to find it in the search engines or you can click on the option revert to draft to save articles without revealing in the website and thus in the search engines (Fig. 2)↓↓↓↓.
