I think this site is great.
I am doing an internship on a webdesign company and I want to figure out how high rankings are possible.
I have nearly found everything what I wanted to know...
but something I didn't find:
What happens if I seperate something with a comma or a "|" in the TITLE tag?
For example: <title>7thsense Full Service: Webdesign, Content Management and Online Shop.</title>
Are the words "Webdesign" and "Shop" still recognized by google?
253 websites linking to our page (www.7thsense.net). They all link with our company name.
For example: Webdesign by 7thsense
Would it be better when they link to us with the word Webdesign?
Webdesign by 7thsense
Thanks a lot!

As far as commas go, they're not a problem in a title. I would recommend, however, either taking your company name out of the title or moving it to the end, unless you believe that people will be searching on the name of the company.

oh, seems webdesign is a German phrase...
in a keyword database webdesign ranks 10 times higher than web design. That's fine, cos our target group is German, too.
About the anchor text, is it worth to change all those sites? or only those with the highest google toolbar page rank? Will that give us a "boost" or just a hustle?

I imagine that "webdesign" is as competitive a term in German as "web design" is in English. And that's very competitive. If you're going to try to get good rankings for a term as general as that, you'll need all the help you can get.
About the anchor text, is it worth to change all those sites?
So yes, if you're determined to do this (I would personally recommend going for something more specific, like webdesign [location]) it will help to get your backlinks to use that term in the anchor text. But you'll need to be very careful. I don't think many webmasters will welcome a request to make a change like that, and you don't want to alienate anyone to the point of dropping the link altogether.
It might be safer to request this of any sites that link to you in the future, before they add the link.

most of the sites linking to us are our customers and we host there sites. So this wouldn't be a prob.
I guess webdesign stuttgart (town) is a good idea. I'll check that tomorrow.
6 p.m. leisure-time now.

Webdesign Stuttgart-- go look up how many people are in Google for that result, and how optimized they all are. That's a good indicator of how hard you'll have to work.
Good luck. Enjoy your leisure-time; mine's still many hours away.

But I also suppose that if you search for, for example, "webdesign studio", then TITLE "webdesign studio in Germany" will be more relevant than "webdesign, studio in Germany"

Commas appear to simply be treated as a space and ignored, from what I've seen in Google, at least.

From Zeal Guidelines on Titles:
"Special characters: For technical reasons, titles must be free of special characters, such as accents or double quotation marks. However, single quotation marks may be used in titles on the rare occasions that they are needed:

Note that in descriptions double quotation marks should be used as needed."
