Checkmarks Google

So some one asked John Mueller of Google if it is okay to use checkmark characters, i.e. ✓, in your title tags. The question was would it make the title tag look more readable.

John responded that no, it makes it less readable and makes it look spammy.

Here are the tweets:

I don't think you'd want to make your site look spammy, so maybe stay away from checkmarks in your title tags. Got that?

This is where you all response with "check that" or "✓" in the comments.
