Title tag modifiers are words and phrases that tend to get tacked onto the end of search terms. For example, someone searching for a credit card might search for things like: “best credit cards”, “credit cards 2016”, “credit card reviews” etc.

And when you add these modifiers to your title tag you’ll show up at the top of the page for those terms.

Here are a few modifiers you can use:

“best”
“reviews”
the current year
“checklist”
“PDF”
“guide”
“course”
