The <title> tag defines the title of the document.
The title element is required in all HTML/XHTML documents.
The title element:
* defines a title in the browser toolbar (at the top of the
browser window EXCEPT in IE9)
* provides a title for the page when it is added to favorites
* displays a title for the page in search-engine results
The <h1> to <h6> tags are used to define HTML headings.
<h1> defines the most important heading. <h6> defines the least
Heading tags are used by search engines to identify words which are
more important than the rest of the page text. The theory is that
headings will sum up the topic of the page, so they are counted as
So if your page is about say the Boone Family Genealogy, that would
be both the title of the page and the h1 tag for that page. I would
not use the domain name for the title of the page.
Example: My domain name is family-genealogy-online.com BUT I would
NOT want that as the title of my page. I would choose the title and
the h1 tag for what the page is actually about - Little Family
Genealogy or Bayless Family History by Virginia Bayless O'Connell
As for branding the site, I use the same masthead on all of my pages
which is the site name.
