Hello buddies,
i just finished almost everything in launching my new website. but i was confuse little about chosing keywords.

my primary keyword will be (Desktop wallpapers). and sub-keywords will be i.e (cute wallpapers, cars, celebs, places etc...)

i have two methods in my mind

i want to use just category name (i.e cars wallpapers) in title tags of each category.

i want to use category name + related keywords (Cars wallpaper, benz wallpapers, toyota cars, sports cars) in title tags of each category.

can someone tell me which way is the best. will this bring some extra hits to my site? if i use 2nd method

When thinking about how to structure your title tags think keyword density (ie percentage of keyword repetition in title) - suggest you have it at least as high as the site at position 1 for your target kw. Also make sure you adhere to title length and include a call to action.

Good luck!

Use primary + secondary keywords in your title tag.

For example, If car wallpapers is your category, you can use this title tag

Download Exciting Toyota Car Wallpapers, Sports Car Wallpapers, Honda Car Wallpapers and more.

Personally, I use the top 2-3 keyword phrases I'm optimizing the page for in my <TITLE> tag... with primary keyword first followed by secondary or terciary. Like the previous poster said think density (as you do in the page content) as well as position (similar to having your most relevant/important info to be indexed near the top of the HTML).

Since title tag carries a lot of weight when ranking your page, I do not include extra words like a call to action. This further increases your density in the <TITLE>.

I save my "Call to Action" for my meta description. In most cases this is what is displayed directly under the page title in the SERPs unless you have an entry for that page in DMOZ.

So assuming "Car Wallpaper" is your primary term and benz wallpapers, toyota cars, sports cars are the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th keyword phrase for the page, I would make the title something like:

Car Wallpapers - Benz wallpaper, toyota cars, sports cars

and then the description which would appear directly under it in the SERPs would have the call to action...

Remember to use singular and plurals if you can work them in like "Car" and "Cars", "Wallpaper" and "Wallpapers".

I have a similar web site with PR 4. Maybe you want a link exchange.
I do not offer wallpapers but software for wallpapers.

Link deleted. Looks like I am not allowed to post links here. Right?

Correct... Send them a sticky mail if you want to communicate URLs.
