OK so there's something that I'm just not 'getting'. I've got my long tailed keyword and I want to make the title more interesting than just the keyword. BUT surely when I add to the title then I am essentially changing the keyword aren't I? I learned this once and can't remember and can't find the tutorial on this. Please help me. Thanks!

Yes Hani, you are correct, like jvranjes said, add to your keyword phrase, but keep it together and apart from the added title. You should be okay.
Good question

Keywords in title can enrich as much as in regular content.

The idea is to keep the keyword phrase intact and add some extra catchy words, typically in the second part of the title, like "Wealthy Affiliate platform - what a helpful community".

The usual problem with this is that your title will become too long in the snippet, and you will get red flag. I use to ignore this because this typically implies that site name will be removed from the meta title. So add something but be careful.

Thank you for your reply. So is it ok that site name gets removed from meta title or not?

I do not think it has a big role in the snippet, a couple of catchy words may be more important for visitors to click.
