There are different heading tags like h1, h2, h3, h4, h5 and h6, All of them have different value in eyes of search engines. H1 is of highest value which usually means the Title of Post or Blog and as we go down H2, H3...H6 the value keeps decreasing, So it is really important that we use proper tags for different headings.

How to Optimize Blogger Post Titles Using H2 Tag

Optimize Blogger Post Titles using H2 Tag
By default, Blogger post titles are H3 which is not good for SEO as H3 tag has low value in search engine eyes as compared to H1 and H2 tags. So to make your blog rank high in search results, You'll have to optimize Blogger Post Title tags, which means you'll have to replace H3 with some other tag with more value (H1 or H2). Normally Post titles of WordPress Blogs are H1, which means higher value. That's why Search Engines rank WordPress blogs high because their titles have more value (h1) as compared to Blogger titles (h3).
Today I'll show you How can you Optimize Blogger Post Titles. We will use H2 tag for Post titles instead of H1 because using H1 is not always good for SEO, So we will play safe and use H2 tags because H2 tags have high value and are good for SEO. However you can also use H1 if you want but I recommend H2.

How to Make Blogger Post Titles H2

Just follow the steps given below to make your Blog Post Titles H2. I recommend that you back up your Template first.

Step 1: Go to Blogger Dashboard > Design > Edit HTML

Step 2: Search for the code given below.
<b:if cond='data:post.title'>
