Step 1 Please visit https://www.blogger.com and Sign in to your Blogger account
Step 2 Now from Blogger Dashboard Click ->Template ->Edit HTML
Step 3 And locate the script like below from your Blogger template
<article class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/BlogPosting'>
You will find this markup below of <b:includable id='post' var='post'> line. This part includes whole posts or contents of a Blogger site.
Step 4 Now copy the below schema markup code and paste it below of <article class='post hentry' itemprop='blogPost' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/BlogPosting'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'> <div class='post-meta' style='display:none;'> <a class='updated' expr:href='data:post.url' rel='bookmark' title='permanent link'><abbr class='published' expr:title='data:post.timestampISO8601' itemprop='datePublished dateModified'> <data:post.timestamp/></abbr></a> <span class='fn' itemprop='author' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/Person'> <meta expr:content='data:post.authorProfileUrl' itemprop='url'/> <a class='g-profile' expr:href='data:post.authorProfileUrl' rel='author' title='author profile'> <span itemprop='name'><data:post.author/></span> </a> </span> </div> </b:if>
Step 5 Now click on Save template button.
In the above script I have used a conditional tag for static page, thus the script display only on Blogger static pages. And also used a simple CSS code to hide the whole script, as a result search engine will get information about your Blog’s static pages but page visitors won’t able to see this. So you don’t need to worry about static page design.
