    Hi guys,

    Does a title with a size of about 15 words and about 100 symbols has any SEO downsides?

    Home Page:
    It may well dilute the keywordd so it is less obvious what the page is aimed at. Bit of a grey area though.

    Why do you need 100 symbols?

    I was wondering to put several keywords in the title. Is it really so bad practice?

    Remember that Google will show in the SERPs only ~65 first characters of the title. Description length is around 150 characters.
    In my oppinion You should put oppinions in title/desc.

    Bad or good, I wouldn't risk not being counted for kw stuffing.. enter 2 or 3 keywords in your title and description, and set up different pages for other keywords you want to target.

    I think you'll be safe with 3 keywords optimized per page, in the title, metas and the content. Beyond 3 keywords will be keyword stuffing to me.

    Google will show 69 characters of a title tag, any more and it is truncated.

    Target a few KWs but make the title flow naturally like a PPC ad, this will result in a far higher CTR than if you keyword stuff or write a non flowing title that crams as many keywords into it as possible.
