Change the Title Tags in Blogger for More Search Engine Traffic

By default Blogger displays the blog title first, followed by the name of the post. As you might notice this is not good when it comes to SEO.
It's important for the name of the post to come before the name of
your blog, especially when it comes to google search results. Learn how
to make your post title show up first so that you can reel in more traffic from the search engines.

How to Change the Titles:

  1. Go to Layout>edit HTML in your Blogger dashboard.

  2. Search for this tag: <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>

  3. Replace this tag with the following code:

  4. <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType ==
    <title><data:blog.title/></title> <b:else/>
    <title><data:blog.pageName/> |
    <data:blog.title/></title> </b:if>

  5. Save your template and you should see the results in your web browser as depicted in the images below.

  6. It may take a few days for the changes to show
    up on the google search results. I guarantee you that you will start
    receiving more traffic from google once you are re-indexed!
