Your post title should not be more than 66 character. Because in google search result pages, it shows only first 60 characters of title. If your title is long then users will not take interest in your post, as it does not clear the ideas for which you have written your post. According to some experts, using numerical digits in title performs well as compared to tiles without numerical digits.
Title should be attractive. Titles with little suspense is considered good, as it creates excitement in readers to know the facts in details.
Descriptions should be in the limit of 150 characters. Mention keywords in description to make it more search friendly. Always give the genuine descriptions, don’t try to do spam by adding only keywords. If you do so, it will be considered as keyword stuffing.
3. Appropriate Length
Articles should not less than 400 words. Blogger.com users can count their words by using microsoft word, as there is no option for blogger.com users to count their article words. If you are a wordpress user then don’t worry, they count words automatically. Articles with 800 words with at least 1-2 images is best for SEO. Don’t forget to give title and add alt tags in images.
