How is Title Spamming Defined?

Great titles are unique and detailed. They read like a short sentence or phrase and not like a list of words. Think of your title as a news headline and try to answer the main questions of: Who, What, When, Where, and Why. Be descriptive and use words that capture the emotion or mood of the image.
