A while ago, I came across this article "Improve Your Google Ranking in One Easy Step." I thought the information is worth trying, so I went into my HTML and tweaked it with the direction found on the site.

It is now about a month later, and I check my page rank, using this site "Google PageRank Checker", but I'm still ranking at number 2. Personally, the article makes sense to me, since I check other websites as well. Most of them, list the post title first, and then the blog title, not the other way around.
As Judy Sheldon said it best: "Nothing beats a failure, but a try!" If you want your blog to get a higher rank, then read the article, and apply the direction in your blog. It is not all that difficult to do.
