Website Promotion Tips - The Importance of a Good Web Page Title

    The Importance of a Good Web Page Title
Bright Ideas to Promote your websiteThe Importance of a Good Web Page Title

Many web designers focus just on the actual look and feel of a page and dismiss seemingly minor details like the page title.  However, a good title can, in just a few words, tell your visitors what they can expect by reading your page.  More importantly, the page title is the only way that many visitors will be able to identify and find your page.  A good title can therefore increase the traffic to your site. 

More and more Internet users rely on search engines every day, and search engines use page titles to generate the links displayed after a search.  Let’s suppose that you own a company called The Attic, that specializes in vintage clothing and you have just submitted your website to a search engine.  If the title of your page is:  “The Attic.  Specializing in Vintage Clothing”, it is OK.  Certainly, it is better than just “Welcome to the Attic”.

However, a better option would be: “Vintage Clothing by The Attic”.  The reason is that, most likely, a visitor that comes to your site from a search engine will not conduct a search for “The Attic”, but probably will do it for “Vintage Clothing”.  The fact that those keywords are in your title, and especially because they are at the beginning, will increase the chance of the search engine displaying your page within the search results, and will increase the likelihood that the user will notice the link and click on it.

An exception are large companies with superb name brand recognition.  They may be better off by starting the page title with the company or the brand name, since they will be well known to most users and their purpose will be evident.  For all that matters, they may even not need to rely on search engines for traffic at all.

Another reason to pay close attention to the page title is that it is used by web browsers to name the page when it is bookmarked.  If a user goes through her favorite files and doesn’t recognize your page due to a lousy page title, she may by-pass it, and, as a result, you will waste a precious opportunity to get easy traffic to your site.

In summary, you want to use a page title that clearly states the purpose of the page, that will catch the user’s eye when it is displayed by a search engine, and that will be easily identifiable by the user when he browses through his files in the Favorites folders. bd14582_.gif (185 bytes)
