Do not include the name of your web page in every tag for every page. This seem redundant and can be viewed as duplicate content. Use the name of your web page on generic pages like your home page, about me section, etc…

 

As you start creating unique tags for all of your web pages its important to make sure they are relevant. Keywords are great for your tags, however you don’t want to use a bunch of keywords that you want to rank for, but keywords that are relevant to the page. Title tags should be about 60 characters or so, you don’t want it to be too short, but you also don’t want it to be too long that it wont fit. Your meta tags should also use relevant keywords and be about 25 words give or take a little. Alt tags allow you to optimize an image on your web page, that otherwise wouldn’t be looked at. Its important to keep your alt tags relevant tot he page and under 10 words or so.
