Change title and Meta description - Good or bad?

Hi guy,

I had been trying to change the title and meta description of my website targeted at the keyword that I expect it to be ranked high. The results is rather good since the ranked increased. So, just wondering if it is good or bad to change the title and meta description all the time.

Any ideas?

I change mine all the time and have never had any ill effect.

I use meta descriptions to attract traffic as that is what is seen in the serps results. I sell physical products on several sites and use the meta description to advertise offers.

Don't keyword stuff in your title though as it won't help. Try and make sure you have the same (or similar) keyword in your H1 too.

Thanks for your advise. I also think that GG will look at the title and meta first. That is why I want to change it.

No the Idea is good Because changing of meta description is overall good thing because google keep on updating its new updates which is a dangerous thing for SEO, Thus keyword rotation is needed in meta tags thus to rank on the top.

Google would not punish us because we change meta tag all the time. The problem is what key are you intend to rank and how meta tags fit that keyword

It's good to change the meta title and description, when you are not able to increase the rankings but doing frequently, might make your website to lose the ranking as well.

Changing Meta title and Description is good if it is not useful for getting rankings in search engines.

Google ranks better in SERP by changing the meta description

OMG! How on earth you decipher the question to give this answer?? Increasing post count perhaps??

No one knows exactly how SERPs will react to a change - any change for that matter. Sure, there are guidelines to follow, but what's to say your change has a negative affect? Or at the very best, a neutral effect?

The answer? Well, I guess you will learn something in the process. Whether it's positive or negative, no one really knows for absolute sure till you try it.

I think change title and meta descriptions is good because GG always want update contents. But url should not be changed if your url got indexed by Google because it make a duplicate content

If your website is not ranking then you should change your meta tags and make changes in website frequently to rank it better.

Changing titles and descriptions can go either way. It depends on what kind of changes and whether they're spammy or not.

Re: Change title and Meta description - Good or bad?

Hello,
My suggestion to going forward for the changing of titles and description on your website. First you should verify that change don't harm your ranking and keyword search on google. Otherwise it would be a tough job to recover the loss due to the changes.

Thanks
Deep

I think that we should change titles and description when we update new things for these pages. Maybe It's good for SEO and reader's experience.

If you think you can improve on your title, absolutely yes, go ahead and change it. Then "Fetch" the updated, uploaded page in your Google Webmaster Tools. Meta Descriptions are less important. But if you can rewrite them to be more descriptive and appealing, then sure, go ahead and change them.

There is nothing worn impact on Changing title and Meta description. In fact title and Meta description should relevant website & keyword.

So there is nothing wrong to change title & Meta description.

Sometimes it goes bad. Why I am saying that because I experience it. I changed my meta description and my keywords ranking goes down. but this thing happens one or two times out of hundred otherwise it will help you to perform better in SERPs.
