Featured snippets are special boxes where the format of regular listings is reversed, showing the descriptive snippet first.

So here is the answer to the most awaited question.

How to add “Table of Content” in Blogger/Blogspot?

In WordPress, there are many plugins available to add Table of Contents to posts, with the help of these plugins, you can easily create a table of contents for WordPress but on Blogger platform, you have to use HTML to create Table of Content(TOC).

To create a table of contents, you do not need a lot of HTML knowledge. You can easily add a table of contents to your posts even if you know a little bit basic of HTML.

If you do not any knowledge of HTML, NO MATTER because if you follow this post well, you can easily add TOC to your post. We can also add a table of content manually, but its a very time-consuming task.

But as I told you most of the time, only the long posts require a table of contents, so do not waste your time by adding TOC in short post and add the table of contents to long posts so that readers can get good reading experience.

Before we start customization and coding, please save the backup of your template, as if something goes wrong, you will always have to option to restore the old version. Let’s Get Started.
