If you want to go with this method, higher chances to overloaded your title in search. It is not best for user experience, in returns, low CTR (click through rate). 3 is based on my second method, "Remove homepage title in Blogger post title."

In that case, your post title now has the targeted keywords, which is a good sign for SEO. Keep in mind, the page title should be between 40 to 70 character limit. Follow the steps for both methods.

Now you have successfully swapped your post title with blog title in Blogger. Basically, your titles for every page should be at most 65 characters and if you exceed this limit then it will be overloaded as you can see in the figure 1.1 in 2. number and also it gives the bad impression on the search engine pages which causes the low CTR on search engines. If you just swap the titles inside your post pages, some characters will be always reserved for the homepage title let's it is 30 characters. You should use at most 65 characters into your post titles otherwise if you exceed this limit your post title would be overloaded in the search results that returns the low CTR. Now, you have only (65 - 30 = 35) 35 characters that can be use to create your post titles which is extremely low to identify your subject, and you can't be able to use your keywords within 35 characters criteria. If you don't care about the overloaded property of your title in the search results, you can go with the above method. I highly recommend you to go with the second method, If your blog generate revenue like from Google Adsense & BuySellAds. Once you apply the second method, your search engine rankings would be significantly increased. The more search traffic you have, the most revenue you get from the blog. In the second method, I have also optimized the title of Blogger static pages. I have used the swapping of title on the static pages since it has the short page name like about me and sitemap. You may also create the URL of  Blogger static pages with your own choice.  Therefore, here is a quick guide to remove the Blogger homepage title.
