    Maximum Title Length


    I read about a recommended maximum title length of 55 characters. I know only so many characters (65 or so) will display as the title in the SERPs (additional characters replaced by "..."), but aside from that consideration, does title length matter?

    Can anyone verfiy if Google has less regard for keywords in long titles? Are keywords at the beginning of a long title given more weight then the ones toward the end of the title? Are keywords after a certain character position in the title ignored, given less weight, or regarded the same?

    I'm sure there are enough examples out there to form some factual conclusions.

    This is one of those SEO archives questions. The SHORTER your title is on a page, the HIGHER the relevance is of that keyword. In otherwords you will rank better for a title that has a three word phrase FOR THAT three word phrase.

    It is hit and miss. If you want to target a set of keywords for one page, obviously you'll want a longer title tag to include those words.

    if you want to rank on many words for one page, is to beginn with a few words as explained before.... and when you are satisfied for this words, you should add other ones.

    Its best to start simple and experiment from there. That's what I did and it worked out well.
