For this Throwback Thursday we wanted to focus on browser titles – the importance of them and how to make the most of them.

The browser title is the official page title that appears at the top of the browser window, in search results, and in bookmarks. As this is the title used externally, it should fully identify your website. We must stress that the browser title is the most important tag for search engines. It doesn’t take up any screen area so start with a title that clearly identifies your page and your site for visitors, then extend the title using keywords for search engines. Make sure to use keywords that potential clients may search for. For example your home page browser title should include words such as; your company name, what you specialise in e.g. pet photography and the areas that you work within e.g. Chertsey, Addlestone and Thorpe.

Note: You are limited to 60 characters in your browser titles and that includes spaces!

To edit a browser title log in to your account on theimagefile > My Website > Your Site Name > Pages > Edit Web Pages > Select The Page You Wish To Edit > Browser Title.
