It's been about a year since this thread was active, and I'm curious to know if anyone who implemented post title edits has seen measurable results?
We're looking into starting to change post titles to improve search results - we know that most people arrive via Google search right now, and we have lots of post titles such as "email question" that just don't get good topics to turn up.
Right now I'm working with our SEO team to identify keywords we want to implement and then identifying posts that we could change the titles of for better results.
We're also thinking about how to roll this out to the community, and are leaning toward a "notify first" process, with a "if we don't hear back from you within X days, we'll go ahead and make the change."
So what do you think? If this is something you've done, has it improved things for your community?
