Hi guys im going to start a new series of hubs but im not sure how to format the title. There will be the name of the series and then the name of the individual hub. Should I have it like this (not real title but example):
Types of Hats: The Baseball Cap
Types of Hats : The Baseball Cap
Types of Hats The Baseball Cap
Types of Hats-The Baseball Cap
Types of Hats - The Baseball Cap
There's a subtle difference I know but im not sure which is more pleasing to the eye( /Google he he) so opinions or even suggestions would be most welcome.
I use colons and dashes depending on my mood, I dont think it matters which, but I'd definitely have something in between.
You might also consider using "hat styles" instead of "types of hats" just cos it seems a more natural phrase someone might type into google.. 2 words instead of 3, cos people are lazy feckers.
I'm not really making hubs about hats i was just using it as an example but thank you anyway.
Based on my experience, I would put product name first, category name second. And it does not matter what delimeter you use, as long as you use one.
We are talking search engines, not people here
Ive been experimenting with order, as far as product name or tip genre, or whatever, and they all seem to generate the same amount of traffic for me, as long as they're in an order people search on.
I mean.. how does a search engine decide whats highest ranked? Isnt it by how many people are searching / clicking on specific links and titles??
It's all about duplicate content issue, not about ranking. SE deem starting words in title more important, and you want diversity at the beginning...
But.. with millions of pages.. does diversity really exist anymore? And if it does - how often do people search it out?
You might consider making a group for your series, i.e. Types of Hats and actually leave that part of the actual Hub titles. It will make them less repetitive that way and connect them all together.
thanks for the suggestions guys i think i know what im going to do

I thought that the order of keywords in a Title did not matter and likewise that the order of keywords entered for a Google Search did not matter. However when you do a search for - Green Tea Health Benefits (A) - and...

What do you think about dashes in titles? Does it affect the SEO of that hub?
