Working on many projects I’ve been limited by a CMS’s ability to change title tags, either the title tag is generated by the name of the page in the CMS or there is no control on a page by page basis.
The code is simple:
So the standard title tag can be used and appended onto the new title title tag, or a brand new title tag could be used.
Now the important check, if the title tag is picked up when Google indexes the page? Yes
A few points to note :
- Doesn’t work with Bing or Yahoo
- This should be last resort, always try to get title tags as a critical change for developers before resorting to this method.
Anyone else testing this? Anyone thinks this is a bad or good idea?
