 SEO Google: Are Title Tags a Google Ranking Factor?

Did you know that Google has been relying more and more on the titles of your pages to understand your content? Well, it’s true. Google uses page titles, page headings, and meta descriptions to understand what’s going on on your page and to determine how important your content is. But does that mean that title tags are an important ranking factor? The short answer is no, not really, at least not anymore. In this article, we’ll look at the role of page titles in Google and whether or not they affect SEO or even rankings in any way.

Case Study on How One Blog Affected the Other

The title tags for this blog post are a good example of how the focus on SEO has had an effect on your content. The 'title tag' is what shows up in the blue bar at the top of every search result, and it's usually also the title of your post. When people want to find out more about your blog, they'll click on one of these links and either read your post or click off after seeing that it isn't relevant to their interests. Your title tags should be optimized for maximum conversion because you never know which link will take them to your site. So, if you're going to include keywords in your blog titles, make sure they're placed strategically within the first few words so that they show up prominently in search results.

What Makes a Good Title Tag?

A good title tag is concise and contains keywords. It should be no more than 25 characters in length, though 30-40 is preferred. It should be simple, include the topic of the page, and include keywords that identify the page's content to search engines. 

A good title tag reflects your website’s content. For example, if you’re writing about cooking techniques for steak, your titles might read Cooking Techniques for Grilling Steak or How to Cook Steak on a Gas Grill.

How Can I Check Whether My Title Tag is Optimized?

It's possible to check whether your title tags are optimized by using the search engine itself. For example, if you type in How to make an apple pie in google and click on the blue link with the name of the website, it will take you to that site's homepage. Take a look at the URL now, and see what it says for its title tag. If it has something like How to Make an Apple Pie then you can be sure that google is taking that into account when ranking your page.

How Long Should My Title Tag be in Characters/Words?

Google recommends that your title tags be under 55 characters. Google explains that this is because Google displays the entire title tag on search results pages. If you are using more than 55 characters and want to ensure that your title tag is displayed correctly, Google suggests adding quotation marks to the end of the title tag. 

A good rule of thumb for determining whether or not your title tag is too long is to take a look at what you have written so far and see if Google automatically starts cutting off words from the end of your text. If it does, then it's likely time to shorten up!

What Makes a Great Headline for an Article That Brings in Traffic?

To understand what makes for a great headline, you first have to understand that headlines are the main way people find articles on Google. The reason is that when people search for content on Google, they will see an organic search result and the title of the content under it. From there, if they are interested in finding out more about that topic, they will click on the link and read your post. 

Headlines matter because they affect how many clicks your post gets which affects how well you rank on Google. This is why it's important to write headlines that are optimized for search engines while also being compelling enough to make people want to click through and read your content. 

So how do you come up with headlines that will entice readers to click through and read your post?

Can I Use Numbers, Punctuation in My Titles and Still Rank Well in Search Engines Such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.

The title tag is the most important part of any web page. It's the first thing people see when they search for your company on Google. So, you must take the time to create an SEO-friendly title that will attract searchers and make them want to click on your site. However, many people are unsure if you can use numbers, punctuation, and other punctuation such as? or ! in your titles and still rank well in search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. Short answer - yes! 

It turns out that adding numbers or punctuation inside of your title tags won't affect your rankings at all. In fact, some search engine algorithms actually prefer titles with numbers or symbols because they're shorter and easier to read.

Case Study on How One Article Hurt the Other?

I was recently working on an SEO project with a client and one of the things we were looking at was her title tags. We were going through her site and we noticed that one page had very few words in the title tag while another page on the same website had a much more detailed and descriptive title tag. We looked at both pages in Google and found that the page with less description in the title tag was ranking higher for keywords than those that had more detail in their titles. The reason for this is that when it comes to Google, they don’t look at your title tags as much as what you put into them.

Google has never confirmed or denied the use of title tags as a ranking factor. However, they can play an important role in helping your content rank on search engine results pages (SERPs). There are many ways to optimize your page so that it ranks higher in SERP, but one of the most effective is by utilizing the right keywords in your page title tag. Keyword density is also important, but it's not as much of an SEO factor as the actual words you choose to place within your title tag.
