Testing SEO tip: post title blog title


For Blogger blogs in search engines result pages, the blog title precede the post title. For example, the post Meta tags for Blogger, the post is displayed as "Blogger Tips and Tricks: Meta tags for Blogger" as shown in the screen shot below:

SERP search engine result page

I am going to test Optimize Blog Title for Search engine Results and increase visitors which offered a very simple way to do it. I am going to save the method below in case that blog goes off line:

The method is go go to the template editor (LAYOUT > EDIT HTML) and look for

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

That should be almost at the top of the template. Replace it with

<!-- Start www.bloggerplugins.org: Changing the Blogger Title Tag -->
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "index"'>
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> ~ <data:blog.title/></title>
</b:if>
<!-- End www.bloggerplugins.org: Changing the Blogger Title Tag -->

This was done for Blogger Tips and Tricks at about 8pm, 6 February, 2009. Now let us wait for the search engines to crawl the blog and see the results.

Recording any search result for further test. Below is the screen shot of a search for "blog countdown" which resulted in a link Countdown clock for your blog with the result displayed as

Blogger Tips and Tricks: Countdown clock for your blog

SERP

Let us see if it will eventually change to
