Step 3 And locate script like below from your Blogger template

<article class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype=''>

You will find this markup below of <b:includable id='post' var='post'> line.

Step 4 Now copy the below schema markup code and paste it below of <article class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype=''> code.

<b:if cond='data:post.firstImageUrl'>
<div itemprop='image' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype=''>
  <meta expr:content='data:post.firstImageUrl' itemprop='url'/>
  <meta content='700' itemprop='width'/>
  <meta content='400' itemprop='height'/>


  • Please change the 700 and 400 with any image dimension. Google recommend is 800px X 800px. In case of my template all first image dimension is 700px width and 400px height.As a result this will give additional information to search robot that my entire blog’s first image dimension is 700px X 400px.
