    Does changing post title effect SEO?

    On my blog, I have some old posts that I would change its titles because they are old and not fit to targeted keywords at this time. But I am wondering it will hurt my SEO if I change the title completely on these blog posts? I mean I'd leave n ew targeted keywords in them but they will be different!

    Please share your experience!

    Thank you!

    Off-course, page title is the important factor in the SEO. You will loose the ranking if you will update the page title. The effect of it will be until the next next index linking by Google. Google will reindex your post and see what you have on the title, description and event in the content. However, these parts should match each other with new keywords.

    Changing the title after a few weeks will probably affect your on page search engine optimization. But there are good and bad things that come with editing your titles.

    Why only title? You should go for re-framing blogs with better perpectives if you think your blogs have performed well in the past.

    If you change the title of the Website/Blog but do not change the key keyword and its position it will not affect much. Follow the guidance of SEO professionals:
    • Research keywords and create the title one of the most standards, do not make much change
    • If need to change, consider and research the keyword again for accuracy
    • Changing the title frequently, Google will have to update and change your keyword rankings again, you will face more disadvantages
    • If your previous keyword attracts many customers and now it's gone, you should change the title and optimize the article for the SEO standard

    if your blogs are old and they don't drive traffic and not ranking on top, you should go for modification.
    if the blog is ranking on the first page, I advise you not to change it.
    if you change the title of the old blog, do change the content also. target the new keyword in content also. it will give you a better result.

    Yes it will effect your webpage SEO. Google will need to crawl the new title and provide you with benefits. A relevant title will help to rank the webpage higher in search results.

    Yes. Changing in Post Title will definitely affect SEO of your Blog. But after changing, submit sitemap.xml again and then implement backlinks using the new title and url.

    I advice you rather than changing page title, content should be modified.
