Optimize Post Titles Using H2 tags in Blogger - Better SEO

Recently I explained tutorial for How to change Title tags in blogger for better SEO and today I am here with most important H2 Post Title Optimization Technique.
Not optimizing H2 heading tags in a blogger blog is a biggest mistake that many of bloggers do.
Google has already cleared that google bots reads your content just like a human reads it, headings, highlighted and bolded text draws more attention of both visitors and google bots.
Heading tags starts from H1,H2 and go up to H6 in decreasing order of size and importance. By default all blogger templates have H1 tags assigned for Homepage Main Title, H2 tag for blog description and header dates,sidebar headings and H3 tag for Post Titles.
However the fact is that Post Titles are the second most important part of your blog after the main title. Sidebar and post description are nothing important as comparison with your post titles.

So the in short and simple conclusion of this post is,
In blogger H3 tags are assigned to post titles by default, We are going to assign H2 tags to the Post Titles which will give more importance to the post title of-course after your Homepage main title.

So here is tutorial to change Post Titles Heading tags to H2 in Blogger
  • Go to blogger > Design > Edit HTML 
  • check the expand template box
  • Backup your template
  • Now search for
.post h3
and Replace it with this code bellow,
.post h2

  • Remember replace all the occurrences of .post h3 with .post h2
  • Then search for
<h3><data:title/></h3 
and replace it with ,
<h2><data:title/></h2>
  • Thats it, Now you have successfully optimised your heading tags for better SEO.
After this optimization you will gradually see good increase in web traffic and your blog will perform its best in SERPs.

Can you not also use conditional tags to make the post title H1 only on post pages, but H2 on the main page (with blog homepage main title H1) ... ?

Sagar Nargolkar said...

Why the h2 tag? Why not the h1 tag for post title?

NY said...

not working for me...

Anonymos said...

i didnt find this peace of code to replace h3 data:title h3. deleted braces bcoz its not allowing to comment

Ritesh Warke said...

@Jamie Monk in Phuket,
Yes you can do that but its a messy thing for the highly customized blogger templates that we generally use, but if you are more familier playing with blogspot templates then you can easily do that.

@Sagar Nargolkar,
Yes you can use h1 tag,but if you use hi tag for your post titles the your homepage will have all the posts with h1 tag, which is not allowed.
Again to overcome this you can use conditional tags to make the post title H1 only on post pages, but H2 on the main page. But again its a messy thing and you need to be more familier to highly customized blogger templates to achieve this.

@NY,
Nothing in this post is like that you can say not working for you,
I am sure you are not able to find any of code
mentioned above, because your template may be using h2 tags or h1 tag already. Give your blog url ,I will take a look at it.

Great website. I picked up quite a lot. I hope to come back on your future updates. Keep up the great work.

Great info..

yes use H1 TAGS but make sure that all tags must have uniqueness,
because Google like new or different things.

Ritesh Warke said...

@Abu Shaleh, Yes because I am familier with my template and can control the no. of H1 tags on my homepage to 1.

Also dont think H2 tag holds less priority
In absence of H1 tag H2 tag holds highest priority , If you are using H2 tags for your Title and not using H1 tag anywhere on that page then its perfectly fine :)

H2 is given to Blog Description or Header dates, sidebar headers. Post titles are second most important part of blog after the main title.

http://freshtips.blogspot.com/2012/05/optimize-blog-post-title-with-h2-tag.html

shall i change h3.post-title to h2.post-title?? if so what about this code

h3 class='post-title entry-title' itemprop='name'

shall I change it here also?

It was a very good technique that Place a Blog title with Page title but it is little confusing for me because i have never observed this sort of experience.
