The word "the" is an extra word in between there, but it's a little more attractive and natural looking that way.
Also, if there are many types of widgets, depending on how competitive it can sometimes be that only the one word "widgets" can be in the homepage title, with interior pages focusing on the two word phrase, like blue widgets, green widgets, red widgets - with the widget word alone being repeated in those titles.
The title really should be for the searcher, to attract a click, and if the titles (and a couple of other elements) are worked right to get an indented listing, imho it's more apt to attract clicks and not what I'd call trickery if the homepage and interior page are both relevant. The searcher may be looking for green widgets, but if he's got the homepage right in front of him also he knows he can shop around for different kinds.
I wanted to change the title and was about to post a new thread then saw this one. Suggestions people. Should I drop my sites name XYZ.com and the section name from each page?
Perhaps I should make it "Widget Name - keyword1, keyword2 , keyword3"
i have noticed that all searches are for widget name only...obviously. So am i wasting the title by including section name and website name? Is my alternate solution good enough?
All suggestions are more than welcome and thnx in advance.
Doin just fine in "g" and "y" and "M$"....
Mixed upper and lower case is easier on the eyes ...I think the number of letters is more dependant on the clients browser than the SE ...
63 seemed to be the most I could get away with by being ..."exhuberant and enthusiastic about my offering."
is a waste of character space when put against
the second is just as readable as the first BUT is 2 characters shorter ...
Remember Bretts rule #2 ( the "real" number one is "always take cash" ;)..or it should be ) ..for a page ..
"The title is your most valuable real estate area" ( or some such ) ...
If you can only put 60 to 63 "characters" in a title bar in IE ..then don't waste any "characters" with "space" ..which is considered by search engine spiders to be the same as a letter and counts towards your total of 60 to 63 ...
I'm not making any particular point here, other than stating that in *some circumstances* a hyphen is not the same as a space in Googlespeak.
if you have some space to spare then ..widget - wiget ..
thats for humans ...
then again you get more character space in non ie type browsers ..
the thing would be that ..once they ( surfer ) is looking at your page title in their browser then you've already won the game ..so I'd go for spider friendly ..widget-wiget
S'my 2 widgets worth ;)
