    How to choose the right "page title" for SEO


    Hi;

    1 - The goal is to get the best results with SEO. There are pages that I want them to be indexed.

    For example, for a list of rentals, which one is a good title?
    1. Rentals List in Sydney
    2. List of Rental in Sydeny
    3. Sydneyf.com - Available Rentals
    4. Available Rentals - Sydneyf.com
    Or anything else?




    2 - What about pages that are hidden behind sessions and are only for members. How should I pick title for those so Google ignores them? Maybe index no follow + any title is the way to go?

    Thank you

    Chosing a correct title is very important in SEO world. Now in my view your 2nd option List of Rental in Sydney is the most appropriate title among others because majority of people write simple search terms like this not any fancy searches so this title is simple and also conveying the best meaning for the list of rentals.So you should go with it.

    I'd go for 'List of Rentals in Sydney' and then use other variations in the text and H1 tag on your page. Why don't you use Google Trends to see what search terms people use?

    The first 2 keywords don`t have sufficient search result, So I suggest you to use some of the below keywords in your meta title.

    1. Property For Rent in Sydney
    2. Sydney Properties for Rent
    3. Sydney Homes for Rent etc.

    Also

    If you don`t want to index your member pages you can deindex such pages from Robots.txt

    First 2 keywords are best for meta title. If you want google to avoid your pages put those pages in robots.txt

    Personally I like the number 3 but you can also add another keyword in there and your title can be like this

    "Sydneyf.com - Available Rentals - Rentals List in Sydney"

    Use your primary targeting keywords in title tag and length should be less than 60 characters.

    If you don`t want to index your member pages crawl and index by Google, use this syntax in robots.txt file ( User-agent: * Disallow: /) and you can also use <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW"> for that page.

    Google the term that you're trying to target and look at the titles of all the pages that rank on the first page - those are some indicators of what works.

    I like a combo of 1 and 2.

    Sydney Rental List | Yoursitename.com

    But make sure your spell it correctly, you have a typo in 2.

    To choose the right page title depends on the right keywords you are looking forward. Also on the competition of those keywords would help in creating the Title. The competition and global searches would give the best answer and solution.
