This mod supports a number of simple search-engine optimizations designed to improve person and family page rankings and to help TNG sites avoid arbitrary rewriting of page titles in Google search results. First, Meta keywords tags are added to individual and family-group page headers for names, aliases, and nicknames. Although Google claims not to use keyword tags, other search engines such as Yahoo! still do. Second, dates are simplified for page titles on the individual, family-group, and family-chart pages. Simple SEO is internationalized supporting Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish. Family titles are presented in the site's current language or in English when an unsupported language is used. Finally, Person and family IDs can be displayed or hidden in the TNG page headers by using mod parameters. This mod is a replacement for Simple Titles Mod which is no longer being updated.

Keyword Optimization (HTML Headers)
On individual and family-group pages, names, nicknames, and aliases are gathered and added as Meta keywords tags to the page's header.
Page Title Simplification (HTML Headers)
This mod supports two forms of page title simplification. On individual pages, you can choose from two formats for titles. Short (option 'short' in the mod parameters, the default) displays the following:
- Robert Paul Herndon (1909 - 1992): Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
The long (option 'long') format displays:
- Robert Paul Herndon (b. 9 Oct 1909 - d. 12 Dec 1992): Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
On family-group, family-chart, suggest, and edit pages (including the PDF reports generated from these pages) titles are regularized and localized for presentation in the site's current language:
- Robert Boyd Herndon and Tennie May Calhoun Family: Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
An example in Italian would read:
- La Famiglia di Robert Boyd Herndon e Tennie May Calhoun: Lindell-Herndon Genealogy
This mod currently supports Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish. Additional languages can be supported by adding the required entries to the cust_text.php files, being careful to preserve the parameter markers in the entries.
ID Display for Person and Family Titles (TNG Page Headers)
On getperson.php, familygroup.php, and familychart.php, as well as in PDF reports, IDs can be displayed with individual and family titles. Two Mod parameters control turning this feature on and off. IDs are not displayed in browser titles and are not added to HTML headers.
