    Max page title??


    A crass way to look at SEO is to just keeping bunging into more keywords to the page title where the words still appear on the page.....

    Anyone got any thoughts about the maximum size of the page title?

    Do words at the end of the title count the same as words at the beginning of the title?

    This isn't 200% sure but, the rules for titles are generally,

    • No more than 7 words
      No more than 60 charaters
      Keywords closer to the front the better

    I cannot get away from the fact that I have seen an increase in stats from longer page titles and that the words in the title are more reguarly found..... of course the referrals come from google

    Are you sure that the words are not also in the normal text? My example above shows that Google doesn't take into account the last word in your title.

    Humm I guess that is what we must be seeing..... this is probably because the words are so uncommon that they picked up in text rather than in title tags.

    Solution = more pages

    I believe there is a keyword density issue in title tags as well. The more words the less density each word will have. I'm quite sure this is taken into account. I mainly see top 10 results having 6 words or less in their titles. I also make sure I limit to 7 words in a titel abd for competitive terms will go down to 2 or 3.
    What is a website without traffic?

    Yes i see often the same Thing less Words in Title Tag will give every Word a bigger dimension.

    My rule of thumb is that if IE truncates it, it is too long.
