Blogger Tip: Post Title Hack,Better Search Engine Results

If you are new to blogging and are interested in starting a career in blogging  or sharing something with your friends, then “Blogger” is the place to start. Though there are variety of web blogging software, but if you want a free open source development platform for starting blogs, then my preferred choice is Blogger. But the blogging editor in Blogger, is very poor, for which you need good support software like “Windows Live Writer” to write and publish your blogs on Blogger very easily.

So, in this post I’m going to tell a SEO tip, which will change, how the post title is displayed in search engine results. This will also drive more traffic to your website or blog. Normally, if you don’t apply this trick, your search engine results will be displayed in the form “Blog Title + Post Title” i.e for this post it’ll be like “Techlikes ~ Blogger Tip: Post Title Hack ….”. So this’ll be a problem, if your blog title is big, just like mine previously, as it was “Internet Technology Blog”, which will display less post title and more blog title. But with this trick you can reverse the trend, like “Post Title + Blog Title”. It’ll take time for the formatted code to appear in your search engine results, when they are re-indexed.

The following are the instructions to be followed.
1. Login to Blogger and goto Layout > Edit HTML.
2. Before making any changes, take a backup of your template, using “Download Full Template”.
3. Now, find the code below,

<title><data:blog.pageTitle/>title>

4. Replace the above code with below code.


<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "index"'>
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/>title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> ~ <data:blog.title/>title>
b:if>

5. Save your template.

That’s it! Everything is done. Now all you need to do is fill your post title with rick keywords, so you can get more traffic. Though the results are not instantaneous, you can check the google or any other search engine results after a few days, whether your blog is displayed according to the formatted code.

Here are some snapshots, how my pages are indexed in google.
