How to Make you Post Title appear before your Blog Title in Search Engines

post-title-before-blog-title

As for those using blogger platforms, I remember I said something one time like this, that we have lots of “behind the scenes” to blogging than what we see with our physical eyes. Do you know that one of the very cogent thing you must do after you have optimize your blogger’s blog is to be aware of the setbacks of blogger that will really slow down, or even hindered your traffic from booming like you've wanted.

This is actually a very simple and effective change, but it’s very important to your blog, in respect to the fact that you wanted to be a better blogger, and also you want to increase your blog’s visibility. I guess, this is what many people have not noticed, but I remember some few months ago when I initiated my blog posts for retweet on tweetlow, (a twitter platform that allows you to submit your post links for re-tweet). A friend actually pointed my attention to the fact that blog title (homepage) is coming before my post title, which actually made it difficult for people to tweet my post.

  What are the side effects of your blog title coming before your post title?

1. However, since Google displays the first 66 characters, therefore due to the unnecessary occurrence of the blog title makes important keywords of the post title to be chopped off.

 2. Therefore, you get low traffic to your blog.

  Check the screenshot below to understand what I’m saying:

Before the application of the code
blog-title

After you've applied the code
Post-title

Therefore, how can you make your posts title comes before your blog title?

1. Go to your blogger> click on design> Edit template

2. Make sure you backup your template before any correction.


3. Search for this code in your template:

<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
 4. And replaced it with the below code:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/></title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
</b:if>
5. Click on save, then you are done.

 Now open you browser and search for your blog, then you now see that you post title will now come before you blog title.
