To the SEO experts. When writing titles, what is the best way to separate keywords?


Sample title: "Jamaican recipe: Dumplings and Fish", there I used a colon. What is better, the colon, a dash or brackets for the secondary keywords? So would I place a bracket around "dumplings and fish" or use the dash, or is the colon best? I am asking this because someone suggested me bracketing which I found strange. I have used the dash but have no idea if that affected my title or not. I have developed the habit of using the colon but still don't know if that is best.

    Thank you Simpy63. The titles are cut off at 65 character so I always try to make my title not too long or too short either.
