The product title on mobile devices allows people to find the product more easily and, if it has all the major information in the first 70 characters, the customer will understand immediately if it’s what he was looking for. This will help customers to not waste their time and will also help increase product sales. In fact, on mobile devices, the user will only be able to see the first 70 characters of the title on the search results page. For this reason, you will want to include the most relevant information at the beginning, allowing your preview title to be as informative as possible.
If users do not find the keyword they are searching for in the title preview on the search page, they will be obligated to click on the product, enter the product page, see the full title, and then go back to the search page. This way the conversion rate is going to get lower if they don't end up purchasing the product.
Let's say you're looking for a non-slip yoga mat and you enter in the search tab “yoga mat non-slip”, there are going to be many products with this keyword in the title and probably in the first 70 characters. In fact, the shopper is going to click first on the products that have the keyword they're looking for in the preview of the title.
Only in a second moment, the shopper is going to click on the product without the keyword in the preview of the title. In fact, to find out if the second product is non-slip the only possible thing to do is to click on it to see if the complete title indicates that the product is non-slip.
So, to summarize, this is going to be the flow of the shopper’s searching and exploring process:
Only after finding himself on the product page, the shopper will be able to understand whether the product is what he was actually searching for and if it's worth buying or not.
It's always important to add the most important features in the first 70 characters so that this customer journey and the decision process can be easy and quick.
