Optimize Blogger Post Titles for Better SEO

The title of your page is of much importance when it comes to Search Engine Optimization. The title of the Page is a key to get more traffic especially from organic search. Have you ever noticed the default Blogger Post title in Google? Here is an example:

The name of the Blog is shown before the tile post. This is something which will not attract readers to your Blog. Here is a solution to it. I will tell you how to change the page title for Blog Posts.

Click on Design–>Edit HTML


Step 3

You can click download your template for back up. If you face any error, you can upload the template again which you downloaded.

      It should be ‘ ‘ (a single quote) I have tried updating it in the post!! Hope it works fine now when you copy and paste it in your template :)

      the comment form automatically formats the single quotes written twice to the open and close quotes. Not my fault. And it is working fine now

    Your are right, I didn’t notice the SERP displaying the site name before the post title.
    I will definitely apply these changes in all my blogger’s blogs.
    Thanks
