What is best method for page titles

Hi SEO'ers,

Does anyone know whether there is any preference to using pipes versus commas, dashes, etc?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

thank you

Hey burnseo, welcome to WebmasterWorld!

No difference with respect to rankings. Some minor potential differences in click through's, depending upon how searches react to the specific combination of listings in the SERP's. (Remember, page titles are typically the featured link at the top of each SERP listing, so sites have the option of using whatever emphasis points they choose that might help CT's a little.)

Hi burnseo, when I was making my homebrew CMS for publishing articles I added a little character counter when adding meta like title and description. Google results have a limit how much they display, if your title is too long it ends up in "very good arti...". If you keep it trimmed it will look like a full headline, I believe CT would go higher with such. I do the same for description tag, as this goes into serps (usually) as well.
