Therefore you as a business owner need to use the internet and search engines to your advantage. SEO is the best form of marketing in the modern, digital, online market place. By investing time and money into SEO, you will see immediate results, make your business more efficient as you will save time and money on less effective forms of marketing leading to more productivity and profits.
Investing in SEO content is investing in a more efficient and effective business model, that will lead to more clients, better profit margins and overall more success and growth for your company.
- Your focus keyword(s) need to be featured in your title, near the start of the title, so they are visible and clear to the search engine and readers.
- Keep your title short and snappy as long titles don’t show up properly on Google so a short and clear title will help Google display it effectively and it will be more readable for users. 150 characters is the maximum visibility in a search engine so make sure your title doesn’t exceed this. You can use Yoast’s handy tool and guide to determine whether your title is too long. If it is too long the green line beneath it will turn red and you can modify it accordingly).
- Make your title enticing and intriguing – use phrases like “tips and tricks”, “a few easy steps”, “frequently asked questions”, “here’s how to do/get…” as these are effective for a search engine and will lead to more Click-Through’s from readers.
- Frame your title as a question – when users search in Google, it is usually with a question. Therefore, if your title mirrors this question they will click your link, seeking the answers to their question
- Check out the competition – Google your keyword and see how your successful competitors (the top search results) use titles. Get to grips with what works and then get creative and put it in to practice for yourself. Make your title fun, eye-catching but bear in mind what makes a successful title otherwise it wont be effective for SEO.
Examples to Demonstrate an Effective SEO H1:
Here is an example of a potential title for a business’s webpage: Is there an Age Limit to Remortgaging?
This title is currently not optimal for SEO. Here are some alternatives which are more effective titles for SEO that say the same thing, in different ways.
- Does Britain have Age Restrictions for Remortgage Applications or Applicants?

The final alternative is the most successful title for SEO, though all the other titles are effective as the question framing mirrors what potential client will search on Google in relation to this topic and are short and snappy. The last alternative title is the most fruitful as it references frequently asked questions, it is more detailed but not too long and will lead to content that answers all of the above questions within one webpage and is therefore more efficient. The content under this title can be separated into questions or h2’s (subheadings) that will also optimise the webpage for SEO and make your business more productive.
