Hello everyone -
I was curious, if I include the name of the website within the title of the page, is that better or not really?
For example, "Sport Widgets, Sportwidgets.com" or "Sport Widgets" only.
Does the include of the website name helps rankings for that website?
Thanks

Sport Widgets only. You're basically repeating yourself and taking up valuable space that could be used for other keywords.

My biggest reason for including the url would be for branding. In this case I do not think you are gaining much by having the url in there.

I usually add the URL or the Site Name (Business Name) for user experience purposes. So I'll have "Sub Page Title - Business Name" as the template for most my pages. Seems to get a good response from many visitors I've asked.
