If you use Google Blogger then you must search for SEO tips. Google Blogger by default shows blog title before post title or page title. This is not a good thing because if your blog title is long then post title does not clearly appear in search results because of title character or pixel limit. It means keywords used in post title does not work and very few people will able to find your blog post in search result. In a nutshell your blog’s traffic does not grow significantly i.e. you’ll get limited readers for your blog. If your blog post title would be before blog title then keyword used in post title or page title would work and your blog posts will get more user than ever because keyword rich post title crawled by search bots quickly and your blog’s search ranking improves.
