Hi cysax

To change your window browser tab name go to your properties and then you'll see window title. Enter your new name there. click update my site to render the changes.

Please note though it may take time before Google is able to reflect those changes. The next time it crawls your site, those changes should be reflected.

I changed the window title in properties may months ago and it's still the same. When I was building the site I used Dacoscape, and it seems to have stuck. Any further ideas? Thanks!

Hello Cysax,
Littleus gave you the correct instructions for changing this piece of your site, and I do see that you have changed it. It looks like it is just taking Google a long time to reindex your pages, so the old is still appearing.

You can resubmit your sitemap if you would like. It is important not to do this very often though as Google might look at this like spam. The best way to get Google to come to your site and keep fresh copies of your site pages in its index is to add to your site often. A great way to continually add new content, thus training the search engines to come often, is with blogging. For more information on this please see our tutorial: Blogging With Yola.

Here is how to resubmit your sitemap in your Google Webmaster account:

1. Sign into your Google Webmaster account
2. Click on the url link of the site you want to resubmit a sitemap for
3. In the Sitemaps section click on the link that says "More"
4. Click "Resubmit Sitemap"

I hope this will be helpful!

Emmy
