How To Declare Language Of Blog In Blogger



Have you ever tried checking your website on the free SEO tools available out there?

For all of us operating on Blogger, whenever we try that, it usually gives back an error regarding the declared language.

This is not a problem for other platforms like Wordpress, where the language is automatically included in the HTML code as soon as the owner sets it up from the front end.
