What is the most important. Tag or Title.

7 years 8 months ago #88457 by marchy
HI Guys, I was wondering which is the most significant for search engine.

I run a Joomla site and within Joomla you have the title of the article, you have the browser title, the article title and the H1.

I was wondering as far as the search engine which they take the most into account?

Hi marchy

It's difficult to pinpoint how much emphasis is put on each one, but we put a lot of effort into getting our meta titles right. Google shows those in the search results and they can definitely increase click-throughs.

For sure you are right on this and same for descriptions. I saw a change in conversions after re-working the description.

I was wondering if putting the H1 the same as the title would be a problem?

No, that wouldn't be a problem. That would be the normal way to do it. Most sites don't bother having a different browser title and H1 tags. The only sites that do are those who are actively optimizing for SEO.
