The Most Useless Webpage Titles
An earlier entry described how important webpage titles can be in attracting visitors. Visible, bold, larger font, title keywords in search results encourage searchers to click. The closer titles get to echoing searchers queries, the more they will click.
I collected this list of the five most common errors with examples of useless titles.
Have I missed any?
- No titles at all.
- Useless titles; “New page 1” “Welcome”
- The same title for every page.
- The same very long title for every page.
- Template titles; “About”, “Contact”, “Location”, “Products”, “Services” etc.
