Finally, An End To The Boring Fonts Selection

Many blog owners have been asking for a selection of less boring fonts for their blogs.
It would be so nice to have more default font styles. I know that you can edit them in your HTML, but that is a tedious template editing process.

Blogger has been listening, and recently, Blogger responded.
The Web has traditionally been pretty limited when it comes to font selection, especially for non-Latin alphabets such as Cyrillic and Greek. But great strides have been made in this arena by our friends on the Google Web Fonts team, and finally there are more choices out there than just Arial and Times New Roman.

You'll find an improvement to the typical Font list, in the Template Designer Advanced wizard - accessed using the "Customize" button, on the "Template" dashboard page.

Boring!



Better!



If you like, you can even add wizards to the Template Designer - and improve colors, fonts, and other settings even more.

I remember reading years ago that font selection had an effect on being more easily found on search engines. Is that no longer valid?

The search engines index text, so font selection, along with various other blog accessorisation and decoration choices, will not have a direct effect either way upon search engine reputation.

However, noting that inlinks and traffic has an indirect effect upon reader relationship, and reader relationship will have some effect upon search engine reputation, you can surely see a cause and effect between having a crappy blog (poor choice of accessories, decorations, and fonts), and search engine reputation.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
