Google Still Uses Original Page Titles for Search Rankings

Last Updated: 8 months ago by BrodNeil

According to Google’s John Mueller, the original title of a web page will still be used for ranking purposes, even if it is modified in SERPs. This was stated on September 3, 2021, during the Google Search Central SEO hangout.

Key takeaways:

  • If your original title had a vital keyword that isn’t included in Google’s replacement, rest assured that Google’s search ranking algorithms are still using it.
