In your title and meta tags avoid having stop words because these are words search engines ignore to improve the speed and relevancy of their results. These are words like ( an, but, and, or, it, her, his, in, of, on, she, a).
You want to have the words that best describe what that page is about. Using your keywords that you are targeting towards the beginning of the title. SERP’S only show a certain number of characters so this is also a very good reason to avoid these stop words.
