Google Fixes the Untitled Document Problem

The combination of an incomplete understanding of the title tag and it being set to "Untitled Document" by default in new Adobe Dreamweaver documents has led to thousands of pages being posted on the web with no descriptive title. Since search engines use the title tag as the linked text in their results many of these untitled pages were near impossible to find until now. Sawyer McFarland Media reports that Google has made a change in it's search engine to provide better title in it's results based on the the page's content.

Kudos to Google for doing the work to fix this issue for their end users. However as web site owners and developers we need to make sure we are describing our pages as accurately as possible with page titles, descriptions, and URLs.
