    Hey man,
    It used to be you wanted your title to look like a sentence-or somewhat. Now, Should your title just include your keywords and how important of a factor is this?
    Thanks for any help,
    Jamie

    Title and H1 tag is pretty important, but don't stuff it with your keywords! Make it human readable and put your main keyword just once. I do that way and so far I am totally happy with results

    Dolphinfan,

    The title is important. How important is debatable but you can be assured from a user standpoint, its important for how your site is perceived by a searcher in SERP's.

    You should front load your title tags with your most important Keyword (note that if you are putting more than one keyword in there it should just be a variant of the main one).

    Here is a link to best practices for title tags,

    Best,
