In Google Search if you search for "Dog | Golden Retriever" you get results for exactly that.
Basic topic | More specific subcategory.
Assuming we got a
A | B type title on a site.
<title>something here | Website Name</title>
Does that make Google treat
| as subcategory operator?
For instance, let's say I set up a website named MyAwesomeEshop
I sell cosmetics and accessories.
The title is:
Cosmetics | Accessories | MyAwesomeEshop
Will that cause Google to set my website on gibberish categories? Meaning Cosmetics is an obvious hit but when someone is searching for accessories, what will happen? And if I sell for example biological cosmetics, will it be shown or will Google think the no-sense semantics that my cosmetics belong to the subcategory Accessories?
Is it better for semantics to use
- rather that
| is used by Google as a sub category operator or something.
Already read Which symbol should I use in the title: “|” or “-”? and on the suggested link Title Tag | Learn SEO - Moz I found this:
Primary Keyword - Secondary Keyword | Brand Name
That makes sense on both cases. For instance:
Accessories - For men | Brand Name
What happens if we put:
Primary Keyword | Secondary Keyword | Brand Name
I care about the semantic impact, because we want our website to make sense.
In case it has importance, which one is better for SEO?
Brand Name | Major Product Category - Minor Product Category - Name of Product
Or this one?
Name of Product - Minor Product Category - Major Product Category | Brand Name
It seems that the second answer on the following question supports that I might be right asking this. Leaving it for your reference it might help. Please read after his update Pipes or colons in HTML title tags?
