"Deviant of Choice Fine Art Gallery"
I threw in (fine art gallery) in the end of it because obviously it is an art gallery. But if you are <titling> you have limitations of words you can fit in so what Im asking is should you waste precious space putting in your business name when you could be using that precious space to put in a generic title such as "Fine Art Gallery" that would help you more and then having more space to put in important keywords such as painting, contemporary art, sculptures,etc
Marketing i guess is important in the long run if you want someone to get to be able to remember your business name because if Mcdonalds never put their name on the box or on commercials then they would have had obviously a much bigger problem marketing. But google im assuming doesnt care about your business name when it comes to generating you traffic unless you have already spent millions in marketing your name out.
I also went to a keyword program and saw that my official business name was googled about 10 times a day worldwide (pretty pathetic) BUT major keywords were googled hundreds of thousands of times.
This to me feels like a waste to put my business name in the title,, Am I wrong about putting my busines name in the <title>?
waste precious space putting in your business name
For many business I also see this practice as a waste of space. If your aim is to become a huge "household name" (or if you already are one) then there is a certain value in either building or leveraging your brand. But other than that, there are better thing to do with the real estate offered by the page title.
For me, there is a simple question to answer: Will the business name help draw a click when the page title appears in the search engine results? If it will (maybe it is an intriguing name, or it's already well-known, or soon to be well known) then use it in the title tag. Otherwise, write a good title for the page itself, free of any concern that the world learn exactly "who" you are. Get the click and get the sale, that's my appraoch.
