    Search for Site

    When I search the internet for a site I posted, the return search does find the site but reflects it as "title". Is there a means of changing this to something more meaningful?

    Thanks,
    John

    The large hyperlinked text displays the <code><title>All about something</title></code> from the <code><head></head></code> element of your page. You are in complete control of that. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Hi John

    As Jeff states <title> is the controller here.

    Have a look at W3C and Meta Data using title which has some very useful tips and alternative uses of title. There is a good bit on search engines lower down
