SEO: Keywords in Page Title Attract More Traffic

Importance of Your Page Title

Title of your page is the most important thing both for the readers and search engines.

A reader gets attracted to any page because of the title. The title tells him what is the content of the page.

This is just like the titles of articles published in newspapers and magazines. However we experience many times that the title is not attractive and does not give the idea of content in it. In this case there is a bad impact on the readership of the article. A large percentage of readers ignore such articles. Same thing happens about your pages on your blog, website or Hubs.

For search engine, page title is the most important thing. Many things depends on the page title, including your page rank in search results.

Top Page Title Tips

Here are some tips which will help you while choosing a title for your page.

2. The title should be attractive, otherwise most of the readers will ignore the page

3. The title should contain at least one keyword/ keyword phrase, that too within first 65 characters

4. Do not use too many keywords in the title

5. The title should not be too short or too long. Use 4 to 9 words in the page.

6. Do not use the same title for your other page

7. Check the spelling and grammar of the page title before posting the page

Keyword Rich Titles

For online pages, the title is not just a title, but also a keyword. If the title contains a keyword/ keyword phrase, the page will attract readers as well as search engines. If the title has more than one keywords, it will attract more readers. Further, its page rank will be improved in the search results.

For example, the title of this page is Using Keywords in the Page Title Generates more traffic. The title gives you the exact idea of what is the page about. Moreover, this title has at least four keywords phrases:

1. Using Keywords

2. Page Title

3. Using Keywords in the Page Title

4. More Traffic

Here are few more examples of my keyword rich page titles:

Page: Top Actresses of Bollywood Movies Keywords: Title itself, top actresses, bollywood movies, movies

Page: Queen Abbakka: a Brave Warrior from Karnataka Keywords: Title itself, queen abbakka, brave Warrior, warrior, karnataka

Page: Is Sanskrit The Language of Gods? Keywords: Title itself, sanskrit, sanskrit language, language of gods, god

Page: Funny Quotes on Atheism, Religion and God Keywords: funny quotes on atheism, quotes on atheism, atheism, religion, god, religion and god

Page: Beautiful Actresses of South Indian Films Keywords: title itself, beautiful actresses, actresses of south indian films, south indian films

In many cases, it is not possible to put more than one keyword in the title. In such cases, you should concentrate yourself on just giving a perfect title, which gives the exact idea of the content.

Awesome hub, and extremely resourceful. You get to the point with ease and clearly. It can seems a daunting task to create a title built with keywords as well as an interesting ring that will attract readers, this is a great system for success.

I think you're right - titles are very important to you hub, and your #7 sounds simple but ranks as high as any of the others.

I won't even look at an article with misspelled words in the title. Poor grammar, maybe, I recognize that titles are for google, too. A title with misspelled words, though, is all too often of the quality of the writing inside.
