I have been blogging for well over a year and have never given any thought to â€œtitle tags.â€ Normally your title tags are automatically generated when you fill in the title portion of your blog. The title tag of this blog used to be â€œWell Blog Me!â€ which means very little to the average reader and even less to the search engines. Itâ€™s amazing, having ignored this for so long that I even managed to get a PR 3.
After finding out about the importance of title tags and kicking myself around the office for not using them I got stuck into changing all the title tags of my blogs. For those of you who donâ€™t know, the â€˜title tagsâ€™ are what appears between the <title> and </title> in your blogs templates and show up at the top of your browser as well as your page tab.
I changed my â€˜title tagâ€™ to â€˜Blog Information On Affiliates Surveys SEO Sport Jokes Making Moneyâ€™ that has a lot more meaning to both readers and search engines. Naturally you would use the main key words that you are hoping to get hits on.
Another important part of your SEO strategy is having a clear and informative â€˜home descriptionâ€™ which is what is shown in the google search pages. If this is clear and informative enough you are more likely to get visits to your blog. Then naturally you should also pay attention to your tags or keywords.
A problem with WordPress is that it always displays the blog title first and then the post title. Naturally it would be best for SEO reasons to display your post title first. So how do you go about doing all these things? Well if youâ€™re using WordPress itâ€™s as easy as installing the All in One SEO plugin.
This little beauty also allows you to display a keyword rich title to the search engine rather than the eye catching one you use for your human readers. Another great feature is that it allows you to enter a description for each and every post! If you haven’t installed it yet you don’t know what you are missing.
