we’re currently migrating a huge forum to Discourse and I realized that there is only one single “Title” that I can set. This title will both
- be the actual, SEO relevant <title> of the start page and
- be added to any category and thread <title>
For SEO purposes, the <title> of every page should be as descriptive as possible and should therefore contain the most relevant keywords.
So for better rankings, the title of the homepage should contain SEO-relevant keywords. Like “Blabla Forum - the best advise around cats and cooking”.
However, this will be automatically added to thread titles as well, so the result is for example an ugly looking, much too long “How do I best cook a young black cat, given that I am not yet experienced? - Blabla Forum - the best advise around cats and cooking”.
You see the point?
It would therefore be awesome, if we would be able to have separate settings for the homepage title and a string that will be added to the titles of the rest of the forum.
