It’s shocking how many sites get their title tags wrong. Just search any term on Google and you’ll see at least a few bad examples: single word titles, keyword stuffed titles, titles that start with a brand name… If there’s a way to do title tags wrong, there is a website that’s found it! Often, people make these mistakes because they are operating on an erroneous assumption about SEO, for example thinking that they need to stuff their title tag with keyword synonyms. Thankfully, ensuring your title tags are correct is not difficult at all. While you must take keywords into consideration, the most important thing is that your title is enticing to the searchers who will see it on Google. Remember that while there are many technical elements to SEO, in the end it is about attracting real humans to your site, not just search engine bots. If you want to create the perfect title tag, simply follow these five guidelines.
Well, this post covers everything you need to know about optimizing Title tags. I have one question though.
Is there a plugin for WordPress that will sort out Titles that are too long. I’m using Moz at the moment that says I have 65-page Titles too long or do I have to go in and shorten each page Title?
Title tags are important because they let readers know what information will be present when a user clicks on a page. They are important for the search engines for the same reason, except they also function to determine the relevancy of the web page as a result in a search query.
