HTML title Tag
By Stephen Bucaro
The <title></title> tag defines the title of the webpage, which is displayed
in the title bar of the Web browser. The title tags must be located in the <head>
</head>section of the document. The contents of the title tag are also displayed
in the user's favorites. One of the most important functions of the title tag is in SEO
(Search Engine Optimization).
<title>Web Page Title</title>
Web Page Contents
Note: Don't confuse the title tag with the title attribute. The title
attribute is used in html elements to display text as a mouse-over tooltip popup.
Note: Your webpage's title should not include <, >, or & characters. Less-than
and greater than characters will cause an error on your webpage unless you replace
them with character codes. Even using character codes will cause problems because
some search engines ignore them. Don't use the ampersand character (&) because
it could be confused as defining a character code. Use the word and< instead.
One of the most important elements of SEO is the text within the title tags. The
contents of your title tag are displayed as the title in search engine results. For
highest page rank, your title should clearly explain what,s on the webpage. The
title should contain important keywords. Don,t put the same title on every webpage
of your website.
Every webpage must have a unique title. The name of your website or organization
should appear in the title tag of your home page, but should not be repeated in
other page titles. Your title should not be longer than 120 characters. Google
displays the title only up to the last complete word before the 66th character.
