    Hi Jamie,
    The originally inserted name for a page is retained in the system even after editing the page title. I figure this could be good for seo but cannot be sure if this applies to the home page – if this reverts to being named index. by WordPress or whether it is kept as-is. It’ll work for other pages but I would expect the search engine will offer more weight to a homepage. Have you done any research on this at all?
    Cheers,
    Nigel.

    Hello again Jamie,
    I’m suspecting that the original page name is retained somewhere in the database even though the permalink shows: index. I have two sites, both re-indexed, and they still show in serps with their original name as the main result title in bold blue on Google & Bing. It’s a different client but same site so needs to show the new client’s name.
    I’ve tried again to hunt through the database for any reference to page name/title so I can edit that but without success – I just don’t have enough experience with a database. Can you please shed some light on where or what I need to look for.
    Ta much,
    Nigel.
