Show Blog Post Title First on Search Engine | SEO Tips

If your Blog title appears first followed by Blog post title in search engine ,then just keep reading the post to solve this problem. Before going to solution, I will explain you how this event can make a bad effect on your Blogs or sites traffic.

For example, your blog title is " Latest Blogger Tips and Tricks" and blog post title "Show Blog Post Title First on Search Engine ". If anybody search for this post , he may see this post in search engine like this:
Latest Blogger Tips and Tricks: Show Blog Post
your blog description here

So visitors will not get any idea about your blog post content after seeing this headline. As a result no of visitors will decrease though search engine may ranked your Blog post on 1st page. I think all of you understand the importance of this post now.

Now come to solution. You can do two things:
  • Blog Post Title+Blog Title
  • Only Blog Post Title
Determine which one you will follow. I prefer second one (Only Blog Post Title). But I will show you the both process.

Step 1: Login to

Step 2: From Dashboard select Layout then click on Edit HTML.

Step 3: Then search for this tag"<data:blog.pageTitle/>" . Normally it is located in <head> section.


<b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>


Now if you want to show only Blog Post Title then replace the above tag with following code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
Or If you want to Show Blog Post Title First + then Blog Title, replace the <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title> tag with the following code.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> ~ <data:blog.title/></title>
I hope this trick will help you to drive more traffic to your Blogs or Websites. It also increases SEO of your Blogger Blog. Post a comment if you have any query. Thanks a lot !!!!

<title>Bluehoney's Blog;</title>

Salman - May 25, 2009

I use the following code in my blog template:

{b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/}
{b:if cond='data:blog.pageName == ""'}
{title}{data:blog.pageName/} -- {data:blog.title/}{/title}

(Please replace all curly brackets with angle brackets)

This code shows correct title for posts and other pages such as blogger search results, archive and label pages.

This code worked great, but I have one question:

So I'd like to be able to alter the sizes of titles from one blog post to the next on blogger, and I never thought I could do that, until recently when I just put the html straight into the 'title' section on a blog post and it changed the size. However, on Google and on the top page (where it shows my post title | blog title) the post title comes WITH all the html code in it.

Do you know of any way to command the code to ignore the html in the title section when giving the post a name on top.

I imagine it must be doable since the html doesn't show up in the url, nor when someone uses html in a post does the html code itself appear on google search. Let me know!

Thank a lot! I choose your trick to show only post title but the search engines keep on showing only Sulpot, my blog title instead of the post title. I tried replacing Sulpot with WOW as my blog title. The problem is still there. Now the search engines picks up WOW without my post title. You can google my url at this address Please help.
