The First 10% - Analytic Rules for Writing SEO Titles

First, let’s breakdown the analytic rules that you should follow for every title you write.

Rule 1 - Keep it Concise

Title text should range between 20 and 70 characters - don't repeat words unless absolutely necessary. Simple as that.

Rule 2 - Avoid keyword stuffing

Focus on being descriptive and avoid stuffing as many keywords in your title as possible. Google can detect keyword stuffing and your rankings will suffer as a result. Include your most important keyword in the title once - anything more is suicide!

Bad: Paper Airplanes - Information about Paper Airplanes and the History of Paper Airplanes

Good: The Fascinating History of Paper Airplanes

The second example is more readable for a human being. Always write your titles for human beings, never robots.

Rule 3 - Avoid Boilerplate Titles

If you run a dynamic website, avoid using your brand tagline in every single title. This makes it impossible for readers to tell your titles apart - especially annoying in chrome where only a few characters are shown between tabs. Instead use only a concise brand name at the end of your title.

Bad: MyBrandName, a Place to Learn Cool Stuff | Main Title Here…

Good: Main Title Here… | MyBrandName

Pretty simple! Now lets get to the fun part creativity and technique work together to craft awesome titles.
