Best way to Swap Posts Titles and Blog Titles in Blogger Beta

February 23, 2008 | posted in , | 0 comments

Yes, Now you can change the Title of the blogposts on individual post-view. You might have seen that I've changed the Title of my homepage to "Blogger Templates|3 Column Templates|Blogger Widgets|Blogger Hacks." This trick can help in boosting your search engine rankings.
By default, your Blogger's title on the top left displays your blog title, and if it's in the items page, it'll include your post title as, My Blog:Change the blog title for blogposts. By copying the coding from below, you can change the default behavior of the title tag.

* Step 1-Goto Blogger Dashboard>>Layout>>Edit Html
* Step 2-Backup your template
* Step 3-Follow the instructions below

Find this code in your XML template{in header}


Now replace it with

<!-- Start Widget-based: Changing the Blogger Title Tag -->
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<b:section id='titleTag'>
<b:widget id='Blog2' locked='false' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'>
<b:includable id='comments' var='post'/>
<b:includable id='postQuickEdit' var='post'/>
<b:includable id='main' var='top'><title><b:loop values='data:posts' var='post'><b:include data='post' name='post'/></b:loop> ~ <data:blog.title/></title></b:includable>
<b:includable id='backlinkDeleteIcon' var='backlink'/>
<b:includable id='feedLinksBody' var='links'/>
<b:includable id='backlinks' var='post'/>
<b:includable id='status-message'/>
<b:includable id='feedLinks'/>
<b:includable id='nextprev'/>
<b:includable id='commentDeleteIcon' var='comment'/>
<b:includable id='post' var='post'><data:post.title/></b:includable>
<!-- End Widget-based: Changing the Blogger Title Tag -->

Further more you can add a very good keyword in homepage's title by just adding Keyword + Blog Title by finding this line in the above code{3rd last}-


and adding keyword here

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

Be creative in writing Keyword, it will surely help your blog grow and also for search engine optimization.
