    The style of titles of separate site's pages

    For the best search engines results; regarding what exactly to put in the pages' titles on my homesite (i.e. what titles the separate pages should have), meaning what kind of "style" should I use ??


    Currently they are titled like this consistently through the whole site:

    Tadej's homepage: computing hints, principles, and rules (index)
    Tadej's homepage: computing hints, principles, and rules (intro)
    Tadej's homepage: computing hints, principles, and rules (rules)
    ... etc.



    So I started to wonder, should I rather change the titles like this below:

    Tadej's homepage: computing hints, principles, and rules (only for the "index" page)
    Tadej's homepage: page "intro.html"
    Tadej's homepage: page "rules.html"
    ... etc.



    Or maybe even like this below (it's even shorter and even less repetitive):

    Tadej's homepage: page "index.html"
    Tadej's homepage: page "intro.html"
    Tadej's homepage: page "rules.html"
    ... etc.



    P.S. -- I would then use "computing hints, principles, and rules" elsewhere (most probably in the "description" tag)

    The breadcrumb model is fairly common.

    site
    site, section
    site, section, subsection
    site, section, subsection, chapter
    site, section, subsection, chapter, page

    But it's not unheard of for only the first few words to be noted (by both human and machine) so you can breadcrumb in the other direction.

    site
    section, site
    subsection, section, site
    et cetera

    so that the important bits will get noticed.

    Never just randomly fill your <TITLE> with keywords, Google is smarter than that.
    Disclaimer. (1) Whilst I will help you sometimes, if I feel like it, and my advice in relation to your actual question will be of good quality: my posts are to be taken with a pinch of salt. I will be sarcastic, deploy irony and include obscure cultural references for my own amusement without warning.
    (2) You will gain nothing from complaining, and if you try to argue with me then you will not win. No matter how noble your battle seems, I am still better than you, don't be an hero.
