How to Make Your Blogger/Blogspot Page Title SEO Friendly

By default Blogspot will display your pages Blog Title + Page Title. For SEO purposes we would want our post to display the Page Title first because the first keywords get more weight with the search engines. So how do we do this? 1. In your Blogger account dashboard, locate the blog you want to edit. 2. Click Layout 3. Click Edit HTML 4. locate <data:blog.pageTitle/> 5. replace it with

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'> <title><data:blog.title/></title> <b:else/> <title><data:blog.pageName/></title> </b:if>
6. Save your template. That's it. :)

Temujin, can you check out my blog title? I did your instructions and somehow there's a title tag hanging just before my blog name.

Pre, I think my instruction was incomplete. Sorry.

You should locate < title >< data:blog.pageTitle/ >< /title >

and replace the whole thing. ;)
