SEO Optimize Header Tags In Blogger

Hello Guys! It is my first post in one and a half month, and before you guys start complaining, I want to tell you that the reason for my inactivity from the web was the death of my Grandmother. I lost my Grandma this month, which was the main reason I wasn't that much active on the internet.

And another thing that I would like you to take note is that my mobile phone is dead. So, therefore, I won't be able to get notifications for emails and other stuff. So, if you want a fast reply, then, please ask all your questions in the comments. I will try my best to answer them as early as possible.

Okay, so now get back to the topic. SEO has always been important for Webmaster and Bloggers. SEO plays an essential part in a blog's ranking.

Why SEO Optimize Header Tags?

Header Tags are essential of the post and mainly include the post title. Most Bloggers like to add their main keywords in post titles so if your blog's Header Tags are SEO Optimized then search engine would be able to identify the keywords easily. It thus makes it easier for you to rank your blog for that keyword.

First all we take a look at the default Header Tags Distribution in Blogger and then we will see how we want it to look.

Default Header Tags In Blogger

Well by default the header tags in Blogger are not SEO Optimized and use the following distribution:

<h1>Your Blog Title</h1>

<h3>Your Post’s title</h3>

<h2>Sidebar Gadget title</h2> (Not that Important)

Modified Header Tags

So what we want is that in post pages the post title must have the <h1> tag and all other headings (except for headings in the post) to have <h2> tag. Doing this will SEO Optimize the Header Tags.

<h1>Your Post's Title</h1>

<h2>Your Blog's title</h2>

How To Do It?

Well now comes the coding part. Now to SEO optimize the header tags in your Blogger blog follow the instructions step by step.
  • Go To Blogger > Template > Edit Html
  • Now Search for post-title entry-title (Use CTRL+F to Search)
  • You will find the following code:
<b:if cond='data:post.title'>
      <h2 class='post-title entry-title'>
     <b:if cond='data:post.link'>
       <a expr:href='data:post.link'><data:post.title/></a>
     <b:else/>
        <b:if cond='data:post.url'>
          <a expr:href='data:post.url'><data:post.title/></a>
        <b:else/>
          <data:post.title/>
        </b:if>
     </b:if>
      </h2>
</b:if>
  • Replace it with the following code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:post.title'>
      <h2 class='post-title entry-title'>
     <b:if cond='data:post.link'>
