"Let's make sure we know how to make a title in a block of text "
(You will also find the title of a page in the meta tags )

1 • List the top 5 questions your clients/readers will ask Google to find your site.
In their own words. Literally. Interview your future readers. Take notes.
2 • List the top 5 questions your readers will have in mind consulting your site.
Again, In their own words.
HINT, they are often not the same questions/formulations as in (#1).
3 • Create one dedicated page to answer each topic:
4• Choose well your Titles:
- A typical Google query (1.)
is a good base for the Title of the page that answers that question.
Hint1: “home", “welcome", "a phone number", ... are not relevant titles for your home page. Nobody is typing "Home" to find an "reliable plumber in south Manchester "
Another hint: In many cases these questions include the name of a place.
- Typical questions from your users, in their own words (2.)
are good to title short chapters in these pages.
This page is good exemple, short paragraphs, big Titles that help readers browse quickly and find what they want to read.

A few important concepts before you review your Titles.
- After gathering their questions, you have a clear picture of your readers' expectations.

- You know the keywords that your clients will be looking for and the expressions they are expecting to find.

It is now time to take every chapter and every block into consideration and re-write the titles with the following in mind.
- The Title of a block says what is in the block, no more no less
- A Title allows a visitor to clearly guess the content of the page, if there is some content that does not correspond to the title, either the title or the content has to change.
- The eye will naturally stop on the titles. It will often be the only part of a chapter that readers will actually read.
- Your readers will perceive the structure of your answer (page) from these titles and consider them as starting points from which to read.
- Search engines will see keywords participating of the 'picture' they build of your site, for both content and structure.

A quick guide to edit your titles in your site:
> The title of each page
> The title of a block (or a chapter in a block)
The golden rule: From inside out
Start by creating the text of each chapter, without title.
Define the title of each chapters from the content of the chapter.
Finish with the title of the page to describe the content of the page.
Review the name of the tab to allow readers to guess surely the content you just titled.
Things are starting to look clear and easy for your readers to understand. You are probably feeling eager to start work on your homepage. Before you do that though there are a few more steps. Place your links throughout your site
