How To Write An Effective Title Tag
TLWR: To write an effective title tag you need to optimize title length, not keyword stuff, use unique page names, place most important keywords at the beginning, leverage your brand name, and always write for humans over algorithms.
What Is A Title Tag?
Title tags are HTML elements that specify a web page’s main title. You may be familiar with these as the largest font of a result on the search engine results pages (SERPs) that can be clicked, taking you to the web page that they describe. Effective, properly written title tags are those that quickly and accurately describe a page’s content.
Title Tag Code Example
<head><title>Title Tag Example</title></head>
The absolute best format will always vary slightly depending on individual factors, like your product/service, location, industry, etc. For example, if you want to optimize your tags for nearby local searches within your city, it’s a good idea to include your city in the title tag of pages.
