Blogger: How to create static home page in blogspot blog


Having a static home page on your blog could be a great
way to making your blog more beautiful and appealing; especially to
users who type in your blog’s url directly on their browser (you would
love them to meeat those dirty looking stuffs on the default home page,
would you?), this would be necessary if you are using a third-party
functionality like linkwithin on your blog.
Without saying much, you can display static content on your Blogger
blog’s home page instead of showing your blog posts. You can also show
blog posts along with the static content on the home page.

Use Blogger’s Custom Redirects option to redirect you blog’s home page to a static page of your blog.
First you need to create a static page for your blog. For this, go to Pages and click on New page and click Blank page.
Add the static content you want to display in this page and Publish it
with the title “Home”. Also remember the page address. In most cases it
should be your-blog-address/p/home.html, else remember the URL after
“/p/” and use the address of your static page instead of home.html in
the 5th step.
If you have Pages gadget enabled on your blog, go to the Layout tab and
Edit the Pages gadget. Uncheck the default Home page and move your newly
created static “Home” page to the top and Save the gadget.
Now you need to redirect your blog’s home page to the static page you
created. Go to Settings > Search preferences and under the Errors and
redirections section, click on Edit beside the Custom Redirects option.
In the From input field enter “/” (without quotes) and in the To input field enter “/p/home.html” (without quotes).
Select the Permanent option and Save it.
You are done with creating a static home page. Now when you enter your
blog’s address in the browser, you will be redirected to
your-blog-address/p/home.html, the address which serve as the static
“Home” page.
