    Question Google & Page titles

    I did some searching here but did not find an answer...

    What is better for Google search results:

    Page titles:

    Yoursite.com - Page title here

    or

    Page title here

    or does it even matter?

    If you have long page titles Goldrake's method would be better - simply from a usability standpoint.

    From a ranking standpoint you just want your keywords in there, so whichever way gets them in there better.

    Is there a maximum length recommendation for page titles?

    Google seems to index up to 52 (varies a little) characters
    Inktomi up to 90 characters.From a search engine viewpoint short and keyword rich, matching keywords found in text on page.
