Magento 1.6 has a default title used as the meta-title on all non-content pages that do not have a custom title. You can change this default title to whatever you’d like. You’ll want to use a more descriptive title and it is easily changed in the Magento 1.6 Admin Panel.

Please feel free to visit our other Magento Tutorials in our Education Channel.

  1. Log into your Magento Admin Backend

This is how you setup titles correctly in Magento. Although we have noticed that SEO is lot more than Titles and Metas. It would be wise to use some sort of SEO extension to help you define the correct SEO strategy which works.
