Ok, can't find specific answer.
Have index page, then other pages. When you ask for window title and page heading, should they be the same, or Name of site in window title, and name of page in page heading?

Good question! The window title is what will be displayed in your browser window as well as in the search engine results pages. A good rule of thumb with the window title is to give it a short, concise description of your page along with your site/business name such as:

Synthasite - Free Website Builder & Hosting Services

The page heading is what will display in the banner image of the specific page. So you can put just about anything there to describe your page; as simple as Home or About Us or more detailed like Chicken Recipes.

Hope this helps.
