I am speaking about this question: What does this placard on board an A320 denote?

As the Stackexchange network aims for a high rate of users coming from search engines and this question is about something many passengers of airplanes may ask themselves, I feel like no one would search for a "placard". They would instead search for something containing the word "black triangle" in it.

So, in terms of search engine optimization, I would change the title of the question into something like:

What does that black triangle in the cabin of passenger aircraft mean?

Or similar.

What would you say? Have you got a better fitting title?

    $\begingroup$ If you really want to, you could change "placard" to "black triangle placard" in the title and/or body. That makes the information more specific without removing the OP's original, correct terminology. But in general, trying to guess what words other people will use doesn't seem like a good idea. After all, the OP used the word that you said "no one" would use :-) $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Jul 6 '17 at 18:31

In this particular example, I agree that your new title is better than the original one. But I will leave it to you to change so as not to "steal your idea".
