Last week on the blog, we talked about title tags and how you can beat Google by rewriting your titles. If you are already lost on what we mean, stick with us. We go into great detail to walk you through what this issue means for your website and how to correct it.
Let’s start from the beginning. A title or title tag simply describes what your content or webpage is about to Google and users. This is often something you have taken a lot of time to plan out so you can maximize your page’s impact.
Google and other search engines make it a regular practice to rewrite title tags. Statistics show that Google rewrites 61.6% of title tags to some degree. Google does this so that it can more accurately show users what a specific article or piece of content is about. They do this because they naturally want to ensure that their users are getting the highest quality content that meets their specific needs.
So, what makes a specific title not work for Google? There are several factors that can lead search engines to rewrite titles, including:
- A title length that is too long or too short
- When the title tag does not match the H1
- When it needs title separators
- To avoid brackets
The good news is that these factors that can make a title not work for Google can also be the tools you need to create working titles. If you keep these factors in mind as you write your title tags, they are more likely to be displayed exactly as you intended.
