How to Make Blogger Post Title Unique and SEO Friendly

We already talked about how Google search engine works, and from Matt Cutts’ explanation- it was clear that blog post title has a great role in SEO.
If you are using Blogger, you will observe that the individual post title is separated with a colon after the Blog title. Got it? Well, take a look at the screenshot below.

As you can see, the post title Cebu Tech Blogger is Bert Padilla is located after the blog title My Blogger Blog. This is not SEO friendly though, as the search engines especially Google sees your individual blog post having the same title with the other articles on your blog. Thus, you need to tweak again your template to make every post title unique. It will then looks like the screenshot below.

Tweaking the template to achieve this is very easy. If you find removing the navigation bar easy, what you are going to do now is just as easy as the pie. Just follow these simple steps.

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