Put Keywords In your Blog Title

You know the importance of keywords for search engine optimization in your blog. If you want your blog to appear in the first few pages Google search results you need to do a lot SEO tasks. One of this task is keywords research, you need to do it before creating your blog so you can included it in your blog link.

The search engines will index your blog and use the keywords in the blog title, link, post title, blog description and in the content of your blog.

However, if your blog is already created before researching your keywords don't worry you can still place your most important keyword in the title. Your title should itself contain all the primary keywords for your blog.

Here are the steps to Put Keywords In your Blog Title:

1. Log in to your blogger account then go to Design Tab.

2. Click on Template that you will find on the left menu.

3. Then click on Edit Html subtab of Template tab. In the template box look for this code at the top of your template:


Change it to this code:

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

Change the word "KEYWORD" with the most important keywords describing your blog. I used "Blog tips and tutorials" for my blog as you can see at the top of the title of the Home Page for this blog. See image below:
Blogspot Blogger tutorial, blog
