    Optimize Post Tile


    Generally why you need to optimize Blogger post title? the ans is if you don't optimize your post title then if someone search an article on Google or on other Search Engines for example "How to Download Free Antivirus?". And if your blogger also have this type of Article and your blog name is "SoftStreak :: Download Free Softwares" then on search page, search engine robots first shows your Blogger name and then it shows your post title" for example " SoftStreak :: Download Free Softwares - How to Download Free Antivirus?" this will becomes very big confusion for searcher to find your blog. And after optimizing your post title search engine robots show your title first then your blog name for example "How to Download Free Antivirus? - SoftStreak :: Download Free ....." .

    1. Log into Blogger
    2. Go to Template >> Edit HTML
    3. Find this <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title> (Tip- press CTRL-F)



    And Replace above code with below code


    Code:
    [INDENT]<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "index"'> <title><data:blog.title/></title> <b:else/> <title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/></title> </b:if>[/INDENT]
    
    Optimize Heading Tags

    Due to Rules of Search Engine Robots they read H1 then H2, H3, to H6. And H1 is For Blogger Title, H2 is for Post and H3 is for Sub-headings ... But the big problem With Blogger that is it maintain H3 tag to post title in default templates!.then search engine robot not show post title as the place of post title so we need fix them too.
