** This mod has not been tested against TNG versions 10.0.0 or 10.0.1, but a user reports that v9.2.2.1 is compatible.

This mod is now retired.
There will be no further updates, but for a more functional successor, please consider Simple SEO.


The default content for the HTML title tag generated by TNG is too lengthy for most search-engines. Google, for example, will ignore the content, rewriting as it sees fit in sometimes unpredictable ways. This affects one's search rankings by causing TNG generated pages to drop off Google's results entirely. Simple Titles, produces title tags in one of two abbreviated formats that are compatible with Google and other search-engines.

This mod is essentially a 'one trick pony' allowing you to choose between one of two formats for the titles of your individual pages. The short format displays the following:

  • Robert Paul Herndon (1909 - 1992): Lindell-Herndon Genealogy

The long format displays:

  • Robert Paul Herndon (b. 9 Oct 1909 - d. 12 Dec 1992): Lindell-Herndon Genealogy



More here soon...but for the moment check out an example of an individual's page that uses the mod. (Be sure to hover over the page tab to see how the title displays.) Example
