WHY BLOGGER TEMPLATES HAVE LOW PAGE RANK

 

Title tags are very important page element to get high page rank in search engines like Google. You should use templates with Search engine optimized title tags in order to get higher rankings. Unfortunately default Blogger templates provided by Google Blogger usually don’t have search engine optimized (SEO) title tags.This article will help you to restructure your Title, if required. Some templates already have such tags and please don’t change anything on those HTML.

Picture1 As a part of improving the Page rank and Search Engine Optimization, either you can use a template that already have these title tags. Otherwise, i will describe you how to edit the HTML of your blog to get higher rankings. Follow these five steps

 

Ways to improve page rank in blogger templates

Step A

Go to Blogger dashboard, and then to “Layout” => “Edit HTML”

Before proceeding, you should download a copy of your template. This will help you to retain back your old blog without any change in case you make any mistake.

Then check for this code in your blog’s HTML area in the first 5-10 lines of code in your template near the top.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.title/></title><b:else/><title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/></title></b:if>

If this code is in the HTML, then there is nothing to do.

But if you are not able to find such code then proceed to Step B

Step B

In the template HTML code, find this code

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

You can find it in the first few lines of HTML code in the head portion.

Step C

Then replace that bit of code with the below given code:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.title/></title><b:else/><title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/></title></b:if>

Step D

Once you replaced the code then click on preview. If you have done correctly, then you can see the preview of your blog. If your editing was not perfect, then you may not view your blog correctly and the window will close by itself or some error message will come on the Edit HTML page in red color.

Then check the code you have replaced and still you are not able to do it, just reload the old saved template back.You can comment here and ask me regarding any help after that.

Step E

Once you have successfully installed the code, then refresh the blog and see different posts. You will be able to see the title code at the title bar of the browser in your desktop.Also learn how to install Google analytics in your site to improve page ranking and more traffic.

If it is a old blog with most of the pages are indexed with the domain name infront of the title, now if we change the format of the title, then what about the indexed pages? are they need to be reindexed, please give me a answer

Thank you Arsenal, DJ, shanthy and akash for your nice comments

Dear Anonymous, It is a very interesting question. I will be very happy, if you come with your blogname and to meet you. Anyway, as far as our experience concerned, change in the Title will have no impact on previously indexed pages. Instead, you should take care not to get Duplicate Title issues( you can check in Webmaster tools. Indexing your pages will be automatically done in next Crawling . Well, if you change your DOMAIN NAME, then you had to reindex all posts, you may PING IT or submit blog again to searchengines. You can do it easily . Just read this article http://businessvartha.blogspot.com/2009/07/increase-blog-traffic-and-page-rank.html
