@Kelly After you created a Blogspot, now you need to setup somethings to add more advantages for your blog and better SEO. Follow these tips to apply for your blog:

1. Write good description for your blog title

Write at least 10 words to explain fields that your blog will provide for readers. this part often is H2 so it will help your SEO better.

2. Setup Meta description

Setup this part to show Description for your blog home page, it's important for search engines, more people ignored this part, it should be miss this. Go to Search Options in Settings of Blogspot to set this.

3. Standard Robots.txt file

Add this content for Robots.txt, it's convenient when it included sitemap xml.

Code:
User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
Disallow: 
User-agent: *
Disallow: /search
Allow: /
Sitemap: add your sitemap link here
4. Custom Robots for your pages:

Setup for Home page is All, Archive and search pages are nofollow, Posts are All.

5. Add Analytics

Add Google Analytics to your blogspot to see statistics and know which keywords or articles should care :D.

6. Optimize Meta Title, Description, Keyword

Add this code into before </Head>:
Code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageTitle == data:blog.title'>
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/></title>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.metaDescription != ""'>
 <meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
 <meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName' name='keywords'/>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "archive"'>
<meta content='noindex, nofollow' name='robots'/>
<b:else/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "index"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
<meta content='index, follow' name='robots'/>
</b:if> <b:else/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageTitle != data:blog.title'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
</b:if></b:if>
7. Optimize Meta for Facebook, Google+

Add this code into before </Head>:

Code:
<link href='https://plus.google.com/YOUR_GOOGLE_PROFILE_ID/about' rel='author'/>
<link href='https://plus.google.com/YOUR_GOOGLE_PROFILE_ID/posts' rel='publisher'/>
 <meta content='en_US' property='og:locale'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName' property='og:title'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' property='og:description'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.url' property='og:url'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.title' property='og:site_name'/>
<meta content='article' property='og:type'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.postImageThumbnailUrl' property='og:image'/>
Replace YOUR_GOOGLE_PROFILE_ID to your real Google+ ID, this part to verify your Author and Publisher on blog.

These steps are only basic tips, I will update if you need to have additional information and it's enough for you to start your success with blogspot now.

Good luck!
