Your page title is generated dynamically by X-Cart based up on location.

This changes the default code and optimises the title to be more search engine friendly.

Search Engines take several factors into account when spidering a page, and the title text is an important factor to how the page gets placed in a Search Engine's index.

In addition, with the original x-cart code often page titles appear like this:

<title>Site Title Here -
Product Name

This code changes the text to appear on 1 line:

<title>Site Title Here - Product Name</title>

Which is more search engine spider friendly.

Jon / adpboss .. thanks greatly for elaborating. I really had trouble understanding this one. On the surface, this is just such a minor change but I'll take your word for it about its potential importance and adopt the change.

I presume the x-cart people would know the importance of such formating also and can't help but wonder why they wouldn't adopt this into the base product. Its not as if the whole x-cart community wouldn't benefit, nor that there was likely to be disagreement as to the mods worth. I thought there was a thread here for enhancement suggestions to the base .. shouldn't this be offered up there.

Thanks again,

It could go in Wishlists, but X-Cart has bigger fish to fry than this.

Their code works just fine. This is a modification or enhancement. It won't make or break your store, none of these modifications will. But if you understand what these mods do, and how they do it, then you can add some nifty features and useful stuff to your site.
