Should I shorten the title?

    Is the title too long? I like the first part as a title, but I know it would be too obscure for search engines. At the same time, the two sentence version is quite a mouthful. Should I trim it down to just the second half?

    I decided to shorten it somewhat. Used to be "Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss; Is Barack Obama Going to Bring the Change We Really Need?"

    Input is still very much welcome.

    I don't know anything about search engines, but if it were my title it would be: Will Obama Bring the Change We Need?

      I agree.  Straight to the point with a few good search terms.

    Writing long title is in a way good because it will have more words that will be caught by search engine but too much of it will be harmful. Put a balance between the length of the title and the main keywords it uses which are relevant to the content inside.
