Joomla SEO Tip – Home Page Title In 2 Mins
Your home page title tag is one of the most important title tags on your site. By default, Joomla displays the site name you specify in the config which isn’t that Google friendly, because it’s good to get your important keywords in your home page title.
How To Create A Home Page Title Tag For Joomla Sites
Using the sh404SEF seo plugin by siliana, a free Joomla SEF and URL rewriting component that creates search engine friendly urls, you can also specify a unique title for your Joomla home page.
- Select sh404SEF admin in your Joomla Components menu
- In sh404SEF admin, select ‘Meta Tags’
- At the top right, select ‘Home Page Meta’
- Create a title of your choice, about 10 words
- Create a unique description of the site, about 20 words
Save & hey presto a unique, hopefully keyword rich home page title for your your joomla install.

LATEST VERSION -
Note that in the more recent versions of sh404SEF there is a separate configuration for the home page meta tag. It is in the sh404SEF admin panel but there is a separate button called Meta Tags. Click on that button and you will see Meta Tag Management.
On the Meta Tag Management Page you will see two green buttons near the top. One says Home Page Meta.
Click on that and THAT is where you will enter the Title tag, description, etc.
