It used to be conventional wisdom that title tags should be between 65 and 70 characters in length. Early this year Google began experimenting with a new search layout design that reduces the number of characters shown to lengths between 48 and 62 characters.
Title tags remain an important part of SEO, and are well worth some attention. When writing your title tags, you should have one distinct page for each major user need you address, avoid overdoing the granularity, and never reuse title tags.

Semantic Entity Alignment Consultant
Introduction
About me, at a glance: a collection of my personal favourite G+ posts on Circlecount

The Long Version:
I love social media, I love copywriting, I love freelancing and I love search engine optimisation. Especially as semantics are bringing them all together to collate information on the Knowledge Graph about our brand, our entities.

Pretty good job, really, as my daily e-zine, Freelancer Plus, revolves around all four of those concepts.

My raison d'être on Google+ is twofold:
to help newcomers learn the ropes of this very different social media platform, now that my own personal brand is embedded on here
to help freelancers, contractors and entrepreneurs learn the art of personal branding through developing their own social presence using quality content as their hub. 
If I'm not here on G+, I'm either over at the blog that's the hub for my ezine (also called Freelancer Plus, strangely enough) or copywriting and managing social media for private clients.

If there's anything you want to know about G+, please just ask me.  If I don't know, I'll know someone who does.

I'm on Page 1, the top 200 personal/top 150 male profiles in the UK on CircleCount, Google Plus' official registrar, so I'm pretty good for the gen.

I work, rest & play in the SEO, quality content, social media and Google Authorship world. You're more than welcome to accompany me on this fantastic adventure that is the Semantic Web.

As for references, well: in July 2013, I was fortunate enough to be included in the Sparkah Business review's Top 100 Google SEO Copywriters on Earth.  Plus I've plenty of endorsements on LinkedIn and many freelance agency websites.

If you have a #copywriting or #smm enquiry you'd like me to quote for, please submit details tohttp://bit.ly/darrelldoo.

I'm not the cheapest, but let's face it, Google doesn't want cheap » it wants quality.  For content that will stand the test of time and whatever Google throws at it, hit me now!

Good news for user privacy, but looks like it impacts companies that are based on it.

Facebook has a strong incentive to aggressively go after the bad actors behind fake likes, because businesses and people who use our platform want real connections and results.

Businesses won't achieve results and could end up doing less business on Facebook if the people they're connected to aren't real. It's in our best interest to make sure that interactions are authentic, so we have a number of teams that detect fraudulent activity and shut it down.

The semantic web runs, in essence, on structured mark-up. The clarity of the copywriting we publish and perception of images we share are enhanced by code that computers understand. 

The problem is, not everyone's got the time or inclination (or budget) to structure their entire site in schema, RDFa lite or any other type of recognised microdata format. 

In the absence of this code, we can, however, give the search engines a helping hand when it comes to understanding us. 

By writing in bold, concise sentences, we can produce the triples that both Bing and Google are struggling to extract without structured mark up. 

By disambiguating the entities within our content, we can help semantic web crawlers understand our business, our target market and to whom or what we are connected on- or off-line. 

The result enables the Search Engine the indexers serve to match our content with searcher intent, thus rank it in SERPs with confidence. And that's all that the Bings and Googles of this world want: a clear, concise answer to a submitted query. 

I created this presentation, "Organic Copy: concise, clear content; make your entities stand out!", to compliment the Tele-SEO consultancy service offered by SEO Workers. They own the copyright, and have given me express permission to upload it here.
