Make your Blogger Template more SEO friendly (Part I)

Starting from today on All Blogging Tips, I will share some tips on how to make our blogger templates more SEO friendly. As you know, unlike Wordpress, basically, Blogger Template/layout is not seo friendly enough. We have to do some tweaks so we can rank well in search engine using blogger template or using blogspot platform. Because there are more than one tweak we need to do, i decided to make series of post (Part I, Part II, and so on). In this first part I will cover the important aspect of Page Title.

What is a Page Title

Page Title is Page Title. Frankly, I can't describe it in longer words. The best way to describe it is by showing you the snapshot of Page Title itself.

I hope images above give you clearer information about what is a Page Title.

Make Page Title More SEO friendly

Let's cut to the chase. Basically, standard page title for a single blogger post is The blog title : Blog post title. As you can see, this page title is too long, and it's not search engine friendly, thus we have to change the page title for a single blogger post become like this Blog Post Title | The Blog Title.

For you don't know how to access HTML code in your blog template, to access HTML code of your template is very easy: First, log in to your blogger account, on your dashboard click Layout, and click 'Edit HTML' tabs menu, and don't forget to give a check sign to the 'Expand Widget Templates'. Now you can modify your HTML code.

After you can access your HTML code, find this code line:
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>

All you need to do is just replace the code above with this 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>

Finally, don't forget to Save your Template. Well done, if you have done this tutorial you just make your blog more SEO friendly. Keep in mind that you have to keep reading my next part of Make your Blogger Template more SEO friendly. Good Luck!
