The title page often shows the title of the work, the person or body responsible for its intellectual content, and the imprint, which contains the name and address of the book's publisher and its date of publication.  Particularly in paperback editions it may contain a shorter title than the cover or lack a descriptive subtitle. Further information about the publication of the book, including its copyright , is frequently printed on the verso of the title page. Also often included there are the ISBN and a " printers key ", also known as the "number line", which indicates the printing status.
Because people are scanning the search results it’s important that the title immediately “catches their eye”. To do that well, having the focus keyword in the beginning of your page title is very beneficial as Google will highlight it when they search for it. Sometimes, when you’re optimizing for a keyword that has a lot of competition, everyone will have the keyword at the beginning of the page title. If that’s the case, having one or two words in front of your focus keyword, thereby slightly “indenting” your result and breaking the flow of other results, can be a good idea.
