    I need some advice about a title and whether I should keep it or change it.

    If there are any suggestions to make this title better, then I'd really appreciate it.

    The title is: 15 Spotify Songs to Play When Watching Stranger Things on Netflix

      I think your title is good, plenty good enough.  Just a thought... would you consider having that title as a sub-title and something shorter/catchier as the main title?

        That was my initial inquiry in that it seemed a bit too long and convoluted.

        One tip to remember - never write "catchy" titles online.   You're writing your title to attract Google searches.   People do not type "catchy" phrases into Google, they type the question they want answered.

      I use this free site all of the time to refine my titles. Works really well.  Personally, I have no clue as to what your topic is about.  I don't know what "spotify" is an I don't know what you mean by the term "stranger things".

      Just sayin'

    Did you do some keyword research for this title? If not I would say that netflix is a term you can get rid of. Something like: 15 Spotify Songs When Watching Stranger Things.

      I did not but that last part was what I initially thought was too much, so I'll trim it down.

      Thank you for your help

    Try to think in terms of what someone would put into Google when searching for that subject. Leave out unnecessary words. Limit the entire title to 60 characters because Google will truncate beyond that.

      Very good points, thanks for the advice. I find my titles either land or are completely off but it has gotten better. Still I appreciate the help from experienced writers.
