On-page SEO

Hi,

I have a question that maybe someone with more knowledge can answer, I would appreciate it.

So Traffic Travis claims that your title tags should be longer than 39 characters because they sometimes show up in the description on the search engine results page so people can read them right. So what i did was make my title tags more descriptive than just the keyword phrase.

Using X-site pro to build a website it will automatically name the file name the same as the title tag. This can make for some long filenames. What i did was re-name the file names exactly the same as the keyword phrase, so it's shorter.

Is it more important for the file names to be exactly the same as the title tags or is it more important for the filenames to be shorter as long as they contain the keyword phrase? Or does it not matter at all?

Thank you for your time, you answer is greatly appreciated.

Hi Robting8, you can have complete control over your Google SERP display by utilizing Rich Code Snippets and the rel=Author Meta tag, you can even have your company logo or Google+ Profile Photo display on your SERP results.

A little heads up, Google's Author Rank is going to change the way SEO in general is conducted in the very near future. So I would suggest that honing your wordsmithing skills would be very advantageous for the New SEO that is fast approaching.

I hope this helps.

Hi Rob,

You can shorten the file name as this is more convenient and I do not think that saving your tags with shorter file name can affect your on-page SEO. As long as the keywords are there, then yes you may do so.

If the title tag is too long, I would use a shorter text on the page (with my keyword) that will work as a good query. Creating a title tag with 67 characters or lower is safe for search results. I would rather use a short, keyword rich, and search-friendly title tag than have google change and customize it.

Don't forget keywords in image alt tags Doesn't hurt to add a "title" element either.

An outbound link or two to authority sites helps too, like *.edu or *.gov websites, or recognized authority *.com sites.
