How to write and edit title tags for my products, pages and collections in Shopify?

Before discussing the tips for writing titles and how you can edit them in your Shopify store, let’s repeat why they are so important.

Writing relevant titles is crucial for a site’s SEO (search engine optimization). Titles appear on many places and the most important one is SERP (search engine result page). The titles should describe the specific product (its name, color, brand, etc.) or what content is on the specific page (e.g. collection, homepage, blog, …,) to your potential website visitors (or customers).

Are there any tips for writing great titles?

Important note: Even if you follow the tips for writing great titles for products, pages, collections and homepage, it might happen (and it’s common) that Google will rewrite them. Many eshops and website owners are against this practice, however, so far Google hasn’t enabled us to decide whether we want Google to rewrite the titles or not to better suit the search queries (Google’s explanation). Learn more about this issue in one of my articles: Writing titles and meta descriptions seems to be a waste of time. Right, Google?
