I`m looking to update the title, but I`m afraid that the current rank will drop

Hi guys! What happens to my website homepage GG rank if I change the current title tag? I`m looking to update the title, but I`m afraid that the current rank will drop. The page is ranked number one now (company name). So, how long it takes to rank on top again after changing the title?

YOUR ANSWERS

Selected answers from the Dumb SEO Questions G+ community.

  • Mile Živković: I think there are much more important factors than title tag, so don`t worry too much :)
  • Stockbridge Truslow: Assuming that your company name is still in the page title - you should be fine and barely notice a hiccup.
  • Neil Cheesman: Number one on G and you want to change the title - hopefully a VERY good reason behind that imho (if it ain`t broke don`t fix it)
  • Perry Bernard: If your website holds #1 for brand search, that`s likely to be very simple to maintain, and one removal of the brand from the page title element is unlikely to have any significant effect. But bear in mind, answering this with complete accuracy is impossible, because it`s one change, one question, one factor, and one person`s search. All come withbackground data not expressed here.
