Hello, I was rereading an article on Page titles which said that they are on the onramp to reach any page.

I am just wanted some information on that. From what I understand, the title is the story about your page. So if you had many pages, you need many different titles, correct?

The search engines would pick up on those titles as time went on, is that correct too?

thanks and have a good day

Another question about page titles for the home page

Let's say I manufactured cables, rocketships and missles

could I say for title on home page

Purchase cables, rocketships, missles, custom-made?

see the homepage would be a general page and then inside, I would have a page which discusses cable assemblies, another page for rockethips and another page for missles

OK?

or should I put

Purchase cable assembles, rocketships and missles on home page

thanks for any advice

Every page title should refer to the content of that very page. If you have copy about "rocket ships" on the home page and want it to rank for the query "rocket ships", then use that phrase in the title. If you have an internal page that is all about "rocket ships" and would rather see that page rank for the phrase, then put the words in that title.

You might also do both, if you want to see both pages rank -- and both pages have good "landing page" style content for the phrase in question. Just make sure that your title describes the page where it appears.

Don't over-think this one.
