    When creating the titles for your articles, does it matter where the keyword is in the title? I think I read somewhere that it's better to put the keyword right at the beginning and all the extra words after it. Is that true?

    What works for me is keyword in the middle. Everyone is putting them at the start. So I'm thinking it makes my content unique. But that's just me. Just don't stuff everything in the title.

    Latent semantic information. Pick your keyword, surround it with related synonyms, apply proper grammar.

    a quality title that invokes interest will bring you more readers.. If you're article marketing for SEO then of course having the keyword in the title is important, but you still want it to invoke interest so people click your title and read through to the full article..
