Does It Matter if keyword in title tag is not at the beginning

Reason Why am asking this is everytime on wordpress I use the yoast while creating new posts and everytime I follow the tips where it shows red and orange lights for improvements with seo. Now I create page title and place main keyword in to it and also it shows green only if keyword starts in main title and then also shows need to make a h2 tag so I do and then it asks again for keyword at the beginning of the title.

I thought you could place it anywhere in the title . I do use them at the beginning but say for example I make a site on how to get free youtube subscribers . So I use keyword free youtube subscribers but if I want my title how to get free youtube subscribers then it wont work for me because it shows red light saying focus keyword does not start at the beginning of title.

So my question is I do love yoast but should we ignore it when it says keyword not at the start can we still place it say in the middle and still get results ?

I wouldn't pay too much attention to what Yoast is saying to you about that. Yoast is helpful but you still have to use your own sense of what's right and wrong and your own intuition when doing SEO like this. Yoast wants you to write for the Search Engines but you should be writing for people. So go with what you feel is best/right for the people you're targeting and not so much so what Yoast says to you all the time. Does It Matter if keyword in title tag is not at the beginning

I agree with you. I have used the YOAST tool and found it helpful. But I wouldn't say it was the law! It's just a guide and a very good guide. It helped me understand the search engine better. But there's no law that says you have to follow everything the YOAST tool suggests. Does It Matter if keyword in title tag is not at the beginning

I don't think it matters if it's at the beginning of your title, middle or end. Just so long as it 'appears' in the title at some point.
