    good post. I have to admit I prefer to use one or the other, but it makes sense to try and get both in if you can avoid looking spammy.

    This is some good insight but I have a big problem with using the same word twice in the title tag. You have very little room to fit words and using the same word twice just seems like a waste of space.

    Instead of;

    Disney Vacations – Find A Discount Disney Vacation Online

    I might do something like this;

    Walt Disney Vacations – Find A Discount Vacation Package Online

    This way it has more keywords; *walt +packages and it is still within the ideal 65 characters.

    But as Per My concern I give Keywords and Titles One at The Same.

    I have to agree with chornak. I avoid using duplicate keywords in the Title tag when ever there is a good alternative like…

    SEO Consultants: John Smith Search Engine Optimization Consultant

    Disney Vacations – Planning a Discount Disney Vacation
    Disney Vacations – Planning an Orlando Florida Vacation

    Disney Vacations – Find A Discount Disney Vacation Online
    Disney Vacations – Find a Orlando, FL Vacation Online

    Hi Gray,

    I liked your post. But I have a question for you. Let’s take an example from Travel Industry. As you know..this industry is so competitive and there are so many keywords to target. For a Home Page, If I am putting a title like

    Cheap Airfare, Hotels, Car Rental, Vacations, Cruises – Brand Name – will that work…

    The base of the question was if we add 3-4 keywords keeping the character limit within 70 – will the title still look spammy…..
