In the past, I implemented web page titles (i.e. the code in the
<title> tag) the same way that one would implement a breadcrumb – that is, from the least-specific to most specific. For example:
Web Site Name: Category: Page Name
That is similar to how a breadcrumb would look:
Home > Category > Page Name
Putting the name of the website last puts more emphasis on what the page itself is about, rather than on website branding, which is still there.
This makes perfect sense, and the article illustrates the idea well with screenshots.
Needless to say, I’ll be refactoring web projects to invert titles at my earliest convenience.
