If you are thinking that you can optimize your site in just a few moments and start getting search based traffic then the possibility is quite low. SEO is a gradual process. It could take up to one or two months to make your blog discoverable on SERPs like Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
We’re damn sure after reading this post’s title, many questions might start popping in your head. Like first of them would possibly be “How a title optimization can boost SEO?” as the title is only a text area that appears at the top of your web browser. Secondly, you might be thinking that “If it is so then how will we do it?”.
Now the answers of both of these questions are very simple. First off, blog or static page title is not only a text area that appears at the top of your browser but more importantly it’s also the clickable anchor text that shows up on the SERPs of various search engines. From SEO (Search Engine Optimization)‘s perspective, a title is the single most important element in your blog in terms of ranking well in search engines. You can suppose it with an example. Suppose a post or static page is a man in which title is his face which is the first body part seen by anyone. Same in the case of Googlebot, it crawls your post or static page title first then your whole content’s turn comes.
By default, your post or static page title displays after your site’s title which leaves a very bad impression on visitors as well as Googlebot. So what to do about this?
