google search engine optimization title tag?

Is there an advantage to have fewer words in the title tag when trying to rank on the first page of Google?

    Google only shows about 60-65 characters in the title tag

    It doesn’t really matter whether your title tag is long or short, AS LONG as the most important keywords are right at the start, or near the start.

    If you look at the search “home business” for example, you’ll note that most of the top 10 sites have the word “Home Business” right at the start of the title

    Decide on the most important keywords for that page, and then make sure that you have those keywords at the start, or near the start of the title
