Swapping The Blogger Title

Posted on the 19 September 2011 by Chillpete @geekmeblog
Whenever you create a new post in your blog Blogger will assign a title like this:
Blog Name : Post NameGeekmeblog : Swapping The Blogger Title
This is not very good when it comes to Search Engine Optimization, so what we are going to do is swap things around and put the Post Name first. Now we are lucky in that this is a very easy hack to do.
1. The first thing that we are going to do is go to and click on the Design link on your dashboard.
2. Then click on Edit HTML and find the following code by pressing Ctrl+F <title><data:blog.title/></title>if you can't find that code, try this one. <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
3. Then replace the above code with this code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'><title><data:blog.pageName/> - <data:blog.title/></title><b:else/><title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title></b:if>
4. Then just click Save Template.
