The Blogger Label Gadget is not pretty. And tag clouds are old school. And ugly. Especially the default styles with the different sized fonts. It just ends up a big blog of words that your readers ignore.
But having an organized section of links to your blog categories in your sidebar is a great way to keep your older content alive and relevant. And to keep your readers reading!
So, let’s learn how to customize the Blogger Label Gadget!
Many of my customers skip the Blogger Labels Gadget. They do this for a couple of reasons.
The first reason is because their Labels (Categories) are out of control. The all time record that I’ve seen so far has been 729 Labels on one blog. That would be a huge mess in the sidebar (although, you can select to only show a few Labels in your widget, but more on that later).
729 blog Labels/Categories. That’s just not right.
