While it is not as much of a concern in the questions itself, it seems like it may be important to avoid putting "Raspberry Pi" in the title of questions due to repetition and congestion. How can this be avoided?
I would drop it altogether in titles. We can folow the precedent from Stack Overflow of not mentioning programming languages in titles unless necessary (there are usually tags for that).
It seems to me that any form of "Raspberry Pi" on a site entirely dedicated to Raspberry Pi is a bit redundant. However on the occaisions where it aids clarity, then a sensible acronym or contraction seems appropriate. I've seen "RPi" used a bit already and it seems like a good compromise to me.
Re: this question; Is it safe to operate on any dry surface?
I would think it'd be much more useful in terms of SEO to include the term 'a rasp pi' in the title rather than something along the lines of 'the device'. If anything the better change may be to extend the abbreviation to include the full 'raspberry' word.
If an object or subject is required, and it does not hurt the clarity of the title or question, it may be better to say "the device." The words "Raspberry Pi" should only appear in the title of a question where absolutely necessary for clarity.
It's important, especially early on, that the community makes sure to edit question titles to set a precedent for this practice.
So I was just searching for something related after asking how seach engines ascociate titles and results..
Maybe the name in the domain is good enough.. and then it scans for matches within indexed titles. It is obvios here it matched
raspberrypi in the
domain name and then also in the
titles.. So the results are useless because
directfb is last because
raspberry was matched first based on the search text.
So should be make a definitive answer and rule that Raspberry Pi should be avoided as much as possible in titles. As the above answer was accepted.. but not confirmed in the community.
It seems that so far, there ARE a few questions where it makes sense to have
Raspberry Pi in the title. (Ref: Where can I buy a Raspberry Pi?) but it does seem like it could get crowded quick without proper moderation. And I know the true "algorithm" to SEO is a mystery, but too much could seem like keyword flooding to an elementary crawler and potentially hurt the overall SEO of the site.
Completely agree with the others, it would be out of place to be discussing Windows or Beaglebone for example and so the fact the question is about the Raspberry Pi should be taken for granted.
