    Newbie here.

    My site is Habit Zone. If I find it on google it comes up with the full site address, but how do I change that so it comes up with a title I can target with keywords.

    What if I want it to say Habitzone: Path to Success or whatever.

    Thanks

    If Google is showing your Site address as title in search, it means that you need to edit Meta Title from html source of your website.

    meta title will be in first few lines before <BODY> tag.

    <title>Your Desired Name</title>

    Thanks

    What allenpaul wrote should work perfectly if your site is in .html but I guess your domain is with .net TLD and runs on Wordpress. If yes, go to this URL

    Code:
    http://habitzone.net/wp-admin/options-general.php
    and Enter the title you want under Site Title textbox.

    Edit : If it's your site, please install some SEO Plugin like http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/member-downloads/529423-get-best-search-engine-optimization-plugin-all-one-search-engine-optimization-pack-pro.html#post5178548 to better optimize On-site SEO.

    I also like the Yoast SEO plugin. It is very noob friendly and check your optimization for you. Check it out. I still don't know if it is effective, since I am a noob too, but it has very good markers and helpers to optimize your site without coding.

    NUFC, also update your permalink structure to postname ,it's better for many reasons. I'm from fairly near you in Teesside.
