Do I need the product type in the title for SEO?

Hi!

In Shopify there's the input field for product type. If I sell a t-shirt, and classify it that way in that field, must I also call the product 'very long sample funny phrase t-shirt' or may I omit 't-shirt' from the title?

Thanks!

Hi @TheCoolCat

 

You'd still need product type in your title, since Shopify Product Type is mainly used for internal categorization. 

Note to optimize your on-page SEO, you need to edit the SEO title, not the Product Title, open your Product Page on Shopify -> Scroll down to the end you'll see option to edit SEO title for your product page.

For example, if I want to rank for a T-shirt product, I would put very long sample funny phrase t-shirt there.  Make sure your Title is under 70 characters and must contain the keyword

Hey @TheCoolCat,

A common mistake with SEO is using the wrong words, you have to include words that a person trying to find your product would search in Google. We go into depth into everything in our video:
