Title Element

One of the most critical SEO elements is the <title>My Site</title>. This defines not only the browser tab's title but commonly has the strongest influence in SEO categorization.

Crawlers will look for this element and use it to display your page in search results.

Example implementation:

<title>Samsung Television Sale - My Commerce</title>

Even though most browsers will parse the last <title> tag found in the HTML content, you should always set it nested in the <head> element. The scorer will de-score your page if the title is not in its designated place.

As a best practice and overall recommendation, try to set your language in the <html lang="en"> element, then define your page's character set encoding and set the <title> right after it.

Optimal implementation:

<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="UTF-8">
        <title>Samsung Television Sale - My Commerce</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    ...
    </body>
</html>
