Removing your Website Title from your post title pages is important in Search Engine Result Page (SERP) and also it plays major role in SEO.

Google can reads your title in pixels.  So 50-60 characters is recommended for writing titles.  Each character has separate pixels.  Currently Google will show max 600 pixels of your title.  You can use many online tools to calculate these title length and pixels

If you use more words in your title then Google will not show the title fully, else it shows with a ... in the end of the title.

                                                       Search Title with many words

So it is important to remove your website name from the post titles. If you need your web brand should be included in your posts title, then you don't need to remove the website name from your title.


How to remove Website name appearing after the name of the post title in Blogger

  • Backup your blogger theme
  • Open Edit HTML in theme page

  • In your HTML code below the head tag <head>  you can find both open and close title tags <title> </title>
  • You can find the code within your title tag like this (shown below) or based upon your theme the code may be vary
  <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
   <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;error_page&quot;'>
    <data:blog.pageName/> - <data:blog.title/>
    ERROR 404 - <data:blog.title/>
  • You have to remove the tag <data:blog.title/> and the necessary symbols before or after the tag (for the above code I have to remove minus sign also "-") only from the codes within the title tag.  You can find the tag based upon your theme used.
  • If your title tag code is not very well then, you can use the above code with the  <data:blog.title/> tag removed in your theme.
  • Save your theme to view the changes.
  • You can view your change by opening a post in your website.  And hover your mouse on the above tab and you can see the full title of your post.
                                                          Seeing the title of post 

  • To view the results in the Google.  Search your webpages by using site: operator and see everything is showing correctly.  If Google didn't correctly shown the titles, then you can wait for Google to crawl and refresh your webpages or you can submit a xml sitemap in search console to see the results.
  • If you still see your old posts with the title of your website in Google, but you can see the new posts without the title of your website, then make some changes to the content of the old posts then publish it.  After that check your old posts that will appear in Google without your website title.  I think this may work.
