    Question Meta Title or Page Title?


    Hi,

    Can we call Meta Title as Page Title? Please explain this basic concept.

    As per my knowledge, Meta Tags has three elements. Meta Title, Meta Description and Meta Keywords. But, can we call Meta Title as Page Title?

    Please explain.

    Thanks

    It's all semantics. Meta title refers to a title tag, which is the text you see in the tab at the top of your browser, or the anchor text for your page when it appears in a search result. Some call this the page title.

    The biggest H tag (usually <h1>) on a page is also sometimes referred to as a page title. Many who call the title tag a "page title" will call the H1 a "post title."

    Personally, I avoid it entirely. I refer to the title tag as the title tag and the H1 as the H1.

    So can you call the title tag a page title? Yes. Most people will understand. But there are more technical terms you can use to prevent confusion.

    Um the "meta title" doesn't really exist.

    There is -- however -- a title element: <title>...</title>
    It is very important indeed.

    Some people (also) like to use a <meta name="title"> tag, but it has no value whatsoever.

    For the record: there are many meta tags besides the Keywords, Description and (non-existent) Title ones.
    Hardly any of those have value when it comes to SEO.
