    Google search criteria of title tag

    Hello friends,

    I have two sub domains but Google showing the different result for them. My question is that, in first URL why is it only picking the "asx dividend" and while in the second Google is picking the whole title tag "sg.DividendInvestor.com | singapore dividends | sgx dividend"? Both are for different Google search like one for Google Australia and second for Google Singapore.

    Search result:

    asx dividend
    au.dividendinvestor.com/
    DividendInvestor.com provides Australian dividend paying stocks information related to: yield, rate, growth, ex-dividend date, history, highest paying, ...
    like this one for singapore seems better

    sg.DividendInvestor.com | singapore dividends | sgx dividend ...
    sg.dividendinvestor.com/
    Dividendinvestor.com provides Singapore dividend paying stocks information related to: yield, rate, growth, ex-dividend date, history, highest paying, ...

    Please suggest.
    Thanks

    Integrated,

    Google pretty much selects what they think is the best title or portion of a title based on a search query. You can do your best to provide them the information on what you want to show but they have the final say on what shows up in SERP’s.

    Here is an interesting post on the subject,

    Hope that helps,

    Google gives less criteria strength for the title tag,it gives pretty much preference for description meta tag

    Google mostly prefer title tag in search criteria. title tag is base for web page indexing in google. title tag gibe page reference to search engine.

    Well, I think if you need to get the perfect Keywords SERP (Search Engine Ranking Position), then better to check manually in Google, Bing, Yahoo or the Search Engine you are using.

    I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to say there, but I strongly suspect it's nonsense.

    Google will almost always use the <title> tag that you give, it's only occasionally that it will lengthen or shorten it (apart from if it needs to shorten it to fit the 66 character limit), and pays attention to the <title> tag in the rankings.

    Google may use the <meta description> tag, but it may not, depending on whether it thinks it is appropriate to the search query, or if it can find extracts from the page that serve that purpose better. Google pays no attention at all to the <meta description> in deciding where to rank a page, it is only used to display the snippet.
