Hello All
If i split a post, what would i put into the title of the second post?
would it be title +part 1 and same title + part 2 or something completely different?

It depends on whether you want to use different keywords or not. Personally I would try to find 2 keywords, one for each part, then add links from each part to the other.

So I would name the posts:
keyword1: title part1
keyword2: title part2
Where ’title’ are the same.

At end of ’part 1’ I would link to part 2.
At beginning of ’part 2’ I would link to part 1...

Hello, Lisa. I am so glad you asked this because I was thinking about doing a series because I believe there is a lot to talk about on 1 particular topic that I have in mind to write an article on. Honestly, I believe it could keep evolving or revolving. Thank you everyone for your input and direction. Trina

I think if you let your readers know that you've created a 2 or 3 part series, they will know what to look for.

I would look for the same title, with an indication of which part of the series. Add a sub title so it's not identical to the first post, as @Israel14 mentioned.

Maybe add a brief introductory summarization to remind the folks who read the first one. Add a link to that first post for those who just found your second and third posts of the series..

I use the same title, and add Part I and Part II at the end of each article.

You can also use the same keywords as part of the title, but alter a few words in the overall title, and still keep the Part I and Part II so the reader will know that it's part of the series.

Hey Lisa,

Personally, I have a 5 part series running on my local business blog and used slightly different titles for each one, with the main product within the titles, of course.

Simply used the main theme within the content to come up with titles to suit the content and not have to use the exact same title five times in a row, with only part 1, 2, etc. after each one.

Having said that... I have one post on my personal blog that is over 4,500 words, as I did not want to split the post.

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi Trish, just wondering, would this be considered keyword cannibalization?

I have actually done the same thing earlier. Else I would have written 9 - 10k words. I broke it up into 9 parts. And then I do one that link them all up with just the keyword in the post title. I can't help it if there is cannibalization or not, cos in my case, it seems this is the best way to do it.

Hey Richard,

"keyword cannibalization"?

Have never had my site punished for doing what I have stated in my original comment above.

Simply stating the software's name within a title that is different between the 5 posts would not be deemed abuse of any sort, I'm certain.

I see. That's great! I just don't know how to check whether my site will be punished or not.

Not sure why you feel your site would be punished if you are not constantly repeating the same title.

Are you saying that you have used the exact same title repeatedly?

If so, this would most likely cause a penalty, of course.

Altering your titles would not.

I have not used the exact same title. I asked a similar question (I think?) that Lisa is asking here in the past. Could have been a misleading question back then because I use the term "repeat keyword"

But back to Lisa's question here:

Title + Part 1
Title + Part 2

I suppose Google would see "Title + Part 1" and "Title + Part 2" as the keyword, is this the right understanding?

In my case, I also have the front part of the post as "Title" and then add on different wordings at the back to differentiate.

Hey Richard,

As I said, I literally choose a different title for each part, as the parts I cut my main topic into, pertain to different aspects for the same piece of software.

So, the only repeated word(s) are the software "out put" or product itself.

Staying away from using the exact same titles, and only changing the part number is not what I chose to do with my 5-part series. Though, at the end of EACH part, I announce the upcoming or next part.
