Thumbs up Title of the page - how to write effective titles?

Hello Fellas,

I have a question for you. Please reply if you have had the same problem. You did some research and came up with good conclusions.

I want to rename the title of my webpages.

Suppose I searched for ABC Fees, ABC commissions, ABC commissions and fees and the local searches are 260, 73 and 12.

What should I use? I mean its sure that ABC fees is a hit among the users. But, id I put ABC commissions and fees? What about that? Ain't that winning both the sides.

Your title should be unique and don't use same keyword multiple times in your title. And your title length should be upto 70 characters because google shows on SERP only upto 70 character.

Commissions and fees may be subtly different. If they are, and given the three choices you have asked about, your main page on the subject should be 'ABC Commissions and Fees'.

You should also then create another two pages, one SEO'd for its title of 'ABC Fees' and the other SEO'd for its title of 'ABC Commissions'.

That way your main page is geared to the largest group of visitors, but you will also be listed in Google under the other two headings. If your site was old enough, and good enough, and if your site was the most useful site to anyone searching for your subject, you could end up with all three pages in the first ten sites listed in Google for 'ABC'. Very doubtful for something as generic as ABC, but if you have a less generic subject for a website it's certainly possible.

Hey thanks technol, But, would it be like making too many pages. I mean I want minimize my pages as google also takes that into consideration now-a-days, plus I won't have any text for the other two pages. I have done what you recommended for. Was waiting for someone with more experience and research.

I was only giving you an example of what to do if your heading has different meanings or search terms. It only works if the terms are different enough that you have sufficient content to make different pages.

Title tag has a limit of characters, I think it is 64 characters so you shouldn't cross this..

You main keyword should fall in title tag, it should read like a sentence as well.

Not only this, don't use any stop words like "the", "," etc..

First of all do your keyword research properly. Using Goole / any other tool, you should know the exact searches for each keywords and dedcide which one to focus on. The decision should be based on search volume + competition and your ability to out rank the competition. being #1 in a phrase with lower volume would be better than being #11 on a phrase with higher volume.

So once you make the decision, do a proper SEO. Title is just one of the factors, you need to do off page SEO as well.

Yeah. John Thanks for that. One thing if you can add here is .. wouldn't it take away traffic for the keyword ABC. Although, it is a very vague keyword and has really high number of searches, but I do have some pages listed on the 2nd page of SERP.

You are on the right track. Have a look at SEOmoz's free guide on title tag.

Hi,

Check the keyword's competition in search engine then choose your title. Also use keyword density(3-5%), keep in mind.

Why 3-5%? Any resources to back this up? It seems people mention a percentage but yet not provide how they thought of this number.

I'd like to know the answer myself.

Create a title of max. 70 characters.
Use the keyword that will generate the most traffic.
If you want other keywords, design a seperate webpage for the keyword.

If you want to create nice webpage titles, you shoukd read some documentation about SEO copywriting. (just google it)

Good luck!

Am posting my questions here,I included keywords in my title are not that much competitive so if I change the terms with more influencing keywords, does this will make any differences in the indexed part of my site?
