Hello everyone, I read in the learning center this article about hub titles: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/How- … ndly-Title
They say that the title should be short (also mentioned for stellar hubs), from 3 to 7 words. I am trying to improve my hubs, but I find this hard to accomplish, I am writing a series of articles about "save money reducing the electricity bill" and I cover several topics. For example, I have this one about DIY Solar Panels:
http://eco-logic.hubpages.com/hub/Save- … Panels-DIY
the title has 10 words, is it a problem for my traffic? I could reduce it but I would cover less important keywords and I find all them well suited and good explanatory (not keyword stuffing).
What do you think?
Hi ECO-logic, it's ok to make your own judgement call in order to make your title as accurate as possible. I'd avoid making your titles longer than 65 characters, though, or the whole title will not display on HubPages or in searches.
What about the long-tail title, I've read this is good for SEO? As long as the title is 65 characters or less why should it matter how many words there are as long as it explains the content in a helpful way? A longer title is often more accurate.
You do mention the 'homemade solar panels' in your summary and could remove those words from your title - if you wish.
I don't think longer titles will cause a problem as far as hub traffic goes.
I have some hubs that have title with more than 7 words and they have great traffic.
