How to Change Link Color On Blog Posts From Blogger Template Designer

The high bounce rate of a blog is due to the bouncing back of visitors coming to a post without visiting other pages. It can happen either due to low-quality content or there is no way or need to visit other pages (fully satisfied with the information and no need to browse more). In case if the visitor got what he was looking for, there is no chance to hold him without offering something else which attracts him. For that, we must project the interesting posts and get the attention of the visitor.

The color of links pointing to other pages on your blog(internal URLs) plays a big role here among other factors. If he cannot find the links in the content (identical colors for both text and link), he will not click them. So it is important to give an attracting difference to the internal links.

In that case you need to add custom css on your blogger source code. You have to go to theme and click edit HTML. Here on header you should type the color code for link under style. Since you are dealing programing on your blog, I am sure you can do it without much issues.
Thanks bro for your help, i will try it :)
