How to Optimize Title for a Web Page in best format?

Title Tag is the first thing that any Search Engine will look for and helps the most to rank any website, you have to use it as the best suitable and relating to your content. Meta Title Tag is the thing which will be indexed as the title of your page or set of content in one page. It comes in the following format in header section of any webpage.

<title>Title of your Wbsite</title>

Title is the first thing which represent your set of content in summarized and one sentence, it makes the visitors easy to understand about the content and it’s table of content.

Search Engines will give more priority to descriptive and unique title tags, so make it easy to understand rather than making more complicated by using different keywords in one title tags.

Do not use your keywords many times in your title tags, it will have negative impact on your website if you do anything like keywords stuffing. Put your title text in maximum of 70 characters, because Google won’t index more than 70 characters from your title tag.

For example if your webpage content is about “Responsive Web Design” and your business physical work place is located in Sydney.

Best use of Meta Meta Title Tag:

  • You can use the title tag as: <title>Affordable Responsive Web Design Service Sydney</title>
  • Do not make it like: Responsive Web Design | Web Design | Web Design Services
  • You can use your brand name after your title by using any separator like: | – : etc.
  • Make your Title Tag more descriptive and accurate, it help the visitor find easily what they are looking for, and search engines give more priority to make it easier for visitors.
  • Avoid using too short titles, and make sure it’s not acceding 70 characters
  • You can avoid stop words because Google don’t look for it
  • Your Heading Tags come after the title tag (H1 to H6 depending on size of content), use them like a table of content
  • Make your content relevant to your Title and Heading Tags, if your content is not informative enough you might get negative points. You avoid creating a set of content for the promotional purpose only, make it helpful for your website’s visitors.
