Title Tag – Tips and Tricks

If any keywords are placed exceeding 65 characters then you need to fix it. You can have title tags more than 65 characters but make sure all the keywords are covered with-in 65 characters.
  • Title tag of each page should be related to the content of the page. Don’t ever use same title tag throughout the site.

  • Make sure that the keywords used in title tag are also present in the page content.
