Why Post Title Matters More than Blog Title?

I know some of you are wondering why post title is more important than blog title. So, read on further to clear this out.

Google allows you to have only 65 characters in the search result title.

Yeah, it’s true. So, if your blog title has more than 65 characters, Google will not show your post title. Even if your blog title doesn’t cross the 65 border, it is impossible to show the post title fully.

Google is the widely used search engine all of us use to solve our queries. And, the post title plays a significant role in CTR. The web pages with the keywords (we search for) as post titles obviously get the most number of clicks. Guess what happens when you show blog title before post title.
