Writing Quality Page Titles For Your Website

Posted by David Chism | Wed, Feb 3, 2010

One of the best ways you can help your web­site have bet­ter Search Engine Opti­miza­tion (SEO) is by hav­ing qual­i­ty page titles. Typ­i­cal­ly, I’ll see a lot of painter’s sites that have page titles that say things like, Painters, Hous­es, Res­i­den­tial, Com­mer­cial, Some­where City, Anoth­er City, How About Anoth­er City, Oh and This City, Why Not One More City.” This type of page title is writ­ten either out of des­per­a­tion or a lack of knowl­edge of what a qual­i­ty page title should look like! Google, Yahoo and MSN are quite picky about page titles, espe­cial­ly Google. To write a qual­i­ty page title, a descrip­tion of the cur­rent page, try to sim­pli­fy the word­ing and make it rel­e­vant. In oth­er words, don’t spam” the titles with tons of text. Make it short, right to the point and real. For exam­ple, if I lived in the town of Pills­bury TX and had a paint com­pa­ny that did most of my work in that town, my home PAGE TITLE on my site would prob­a­bly read, House Paint­ing Con­trac­tor in Pills­bury TX | Pills­bury Paint­ing Writ­ing qual­i­ty Page Titles will ben­e­fit your web­site in the long run. It makes you one step clos­er to get­ting bet­ter SEO results. If you need help in set­ting up your Page Titles, Send me an email.
