Forgive me if there has been a training or other blog related to this already, the question just popped into my head. I was looking at some of my category titles on my websites and started thinking if finding a relevant keyword or phrase to use as a title might be useful in helping gain traffic to my websites. I don't know whether the search engines pay attention to that or not. Likewise for the Page Titles. What are your thoughts or experiences?
Thanks
Ange

Yes, include keywords in your post and page titles, and again in the first paragraph and try to use the keyword at the beginning of the paragraph if possible.

Yes, Keywords should go in the title, the 1st and last paragraphs and sprinkled a few times within your content. How many times depends on how long your content is. Your keyword (or long tailed keyword should also go in your meta description as well.

I put my keyword in my sub-title and in my first paragraph.

Page titles, yes, they are a part of site ranking, Categories, not so sure about.

Thanks Debra. I may definitely have to rethink on some of my page titles then. I was originally thinking the page titles or category titles might generate interest in looking through the site once a visitor was there, but now I'm having second thoughts, regardless of whether I like it, my visitors might not really care.

OK, I don't think they will care as much as you think, but keep in mind that your menu items can be anything you want them to be, regardless of what your page title is. You can change it under "Appearances", "Menu" This is where you will set up what your menu(s) will look like.
