How to Change Permanent Link URL on Blogger Posts

4) Once you open it, there will be two choices: automatic permalink and custom permalink, click on custom permalink. 5) Place a new customize title. Make sure your title is all together, no spaces. Otherwise Blogger will reject it.

  6. I noticed this when the updates first rolled out. One thing you have to remember is to change all your back links you've ever made to the article 'pre-change' otherwise all your back-linking hard work will be in vain. Great article!
