How to Replace Older Posts and Newer Posts Links with Blogger Post Titles

If you have ever visited a WordPress blog, you might have noticed that the blog pager on these blogs displays the actual post titles, not just links to the older and newer posts that you find at the bottom of your Blogger blog. This links are parts of the so-called blog pager which helps readers navigate between pages and posts.

If you want to increase your page impressions, one of the ways is to replace the older/newer posts links with the Blogger post titles.

How To Add Post Titles Instead of Older Post/Newer Post Links On Your Blog

1. Log in to Blogger, go to Design > Page Elements
2. Click on "Add A Gadget" link
3. Choose "HTML/JavaScript" and paste this code into the empty field of the HTML/JavaScript gadget:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var olderLink = $("a.blog-pager-older-link").attr("href");
$("a.blog-pager-older-link").load(olderLink+" h3:first", function() {
var olderLinkTitle = $("a.blog-pager-older-link:first").text();
var newerLink = $("a.blog-pager-newer-link").attr("href");
$("a.blog-pager-newer-link").load(newerLink+" h3:first", function() {
var newerLinkTitle = $("a.blog-pager-newer-link:first").text();

Note: The line in red is for acquiring jQuery framework. If you have acquired jQuery in your template, then you can just delete this part.

4. Now Save the Widget and drag it under the Blog Posts section.

View your blog and see if the older/newer posts links have been replaced with your post titles.
