    Hi guys,

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

    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.
