Currently, I have only two blogs with my Blogger account so they are listed there. In the top right corner, you can see your Gmail account associated with Blogger profile, a bell icon which shows the Notifications and 9 small points which show other products of Google the last is your Name.

After the name of each blog is shows the total page views of your blog till now with a graph. Also showing the total number of posts which your blog has published and the last date when you published the article.

There is also a small menu in front of each blog title. The Orange Pencil redirects to the writing area where you can write a new post next button shows the list of your all posts which you have published. The “View Blog” button opens you blog in a new tab where you can see how your blog looks like.

The overview is the first number in the main menu it displays the current status of your blog. It is opened by default when you click on any Blog Title in the Main Dashboard. The first item in Overview of your blog is Page Views Graph it indicates the page views of your blog. Beside Page views Graph you have another section called Updates. Update bow shows all the comments which are awaiting moderation, Published Comments, Page views of the current day (Today), Total number of posts and number of Followers. After that, you have another section called Blogger Guide here are some tips which you can read to increase your blog.

Posts:

In the Posts you have full information about your posts, in fact, it is further divided into three more parts the first is All posts, the second is Published posts and the last one is Draft. All tab shows all the posts of your blog either they have been published or in under draft box. The Publish tab shows only those posts which have been published while the Draft tab shows the posts which are not published.

In the All section, your posts are arranged in five columns, the first column shows the posts titles (in blue color) with the tags (in orange color) assigned to them. The second column shows author name. Third shows comments while fourth shows the total views of that particular post and fifth shows the published date of that article.

Pages:

This tab is especially for pages such as Contact Us, Privacy Policy, Disclaimer, About and Site Map etc. To create a new page, Publish, Revert to draft or delete a page click on the New Page, Publish, Revert to draft and delete button respectively.

These pages are also arranged as your posts (in five columns) but the difference is you cannot add tags to the pages.

Comments:

Comments tab shows all comments of your blog. It is further divided into three categories like Published, Awaiting Moderation, and Spam.

Publish tab shows all the publish comments of your blog.
Awaiting Moderation tab shows those comments which are waiting for your approval when you will approval them they will be removed from Awaiting Moderation tab and will be shown in the Published tab.
Spam tab is very good especially when you got too many comments because it filters all the comments which include HTML links so it prevents you approving those comments which can drive your blog’s traffic to other sites.

Stats:

All of your page views are placed in the stats tab. It is also further divided into four branches i.e. Overview, Posts, Traffic source and Audience.

The Overview tab gives a simple overview of all activities of your blog related to page views. You can see the popularity and the page views of your different blog posts on the present day, on months, in weeks or for all the time.

Posts (Stats) tells you the 10 most popular posts along with the number of page views they get. This can help you to edit your site according to the interest of your visitors.

Traffic source tab describes the traffic sources of your blog. It counts all the links opened from different sites i.e. if you share your blog post on Facebook and people open it then you can see your posts are opened through Facebook.com while if they are opened using Google then you can also see.

The audience, this option is very useful for AdSense because you can target your audience according to the visitor’s countries you can find from which country you get most of your page views.

Earnings:

Earnings may be the main reason for many people who started blogging. But believe me, when I started my first blog I had not a little knowledge about AdSense but now I know a lot about its privacy policies.

Google AdSense is the main source to earn money from blogging although there are many other methods to get paid for the internet but the AdSense is the best one. If you do not have bought a custom Domain Name for your Blogger blog then you can apply for AdSense only through Blogger but if you have bought then you can apply at any time. I will also post an article on the things that you must do before applying for Google AdSense.

Campaigns:

This option is for creating the ad of your blog by Google. Once you sign up and get started then your blog will be shown on other sites as an add and you will get more traffic.

But this cannot be afforded by all of us because we do not sell anything on our blogs, in fact, we provide information about different things.

Layout:

Layout tab shows the layout of your blog. The layout depends on your template which you are using. It is very useful for customizing your blog. You can add widgets, form, Advertisement codes and many other useful widgets on your blog. Moreover, if you are using any latest template then Layout plays very important role and you can also add main menus using this option.

Template:
