24 Apr , 2015  

Going traditional, as every article or piece of information will have a particular “heading” to define it; in the same way, every webpage has a Title element that defines that page, which is known as “Title Tag”. These tags are displayed on search engine results Page (SERPs) in the preview snippet, so you can estimate how important is the title tag, to grab the readers/users attention.

 

 

 

Technically, Title element of the webpage is meant to define and provide the precise description of the page. Title tag comes into picture in most prominent places like SERPs, browsers, bookmarks, social sharing and in other websites too. So it stands out to be a critical element for both user experience and for SEO.

Let’s Get to the Basics of Title Tag:

 

HTML Code

<head>

</head>

 

Perfect Length

Title Tag should be limited up to 50-60 characters, however Google displays characters that fit in 512 pixel display. So up to 55 characters is a smarter option.

 

Format, that really works!!

Primary Keyword – Secondary Keyword | Brand Name


 

Best Practices

 

Keywords – In the First Place!

Always it is recommended to include primary keyword in the title; especially in the start, as it is helpful for ranking in the search engines. Not only that, titles with keywords in the beginning attracts the user’s attention (as they find their searching term in the title). So having the keyword in the title attracts the web traffic too. So wisely place the keywords.


Don’t Forget Brand Name:

It is always recommended to have the brand name at the end of the title, it increases the awareness in the online market and increases your strength when compared to competitors.

 

Attract the Readers:

Keep the title simple yet effective to attract all kinds of users. Creating compelling titles will grab the attention of the users in the search results, always remember that title is the first interaction of the user with your brand, so always have a positive impact on the user.

 

Relevancy:

Title is the concise description of the online document, so it should be relevant with the information provided in the webpage. Search engines are very smart, they analyze the relevancy of the page with the title, then only lists it out in the search results. So always be conscious to maintain the relevancy.

 

Finally, remember that title optimization is one of the SEO factors and is important in both search engine perspective and in user experience perspective, so satisfy both of them to be on top!!
