    Currently I format my pages as such.

    site: domainname.com
    title: Domain Name | DomainName.com

    Would it be better just to have the title as Domain Name without the URL?

    Wouldn't have the same thing listed basically twice. And a more descriptive title might be a little better.

    Home Page:
    It's best to use your targeted keyword in your title first followed by your title.
    for example :
    keyword = dog training
    your content = 5 things to keep your dog healthy

    Your Title = Dog Training - 5 Things To Keep Your Dog Healthy | DomainName.com

    hope this helps..

    So you do include the domainname.com in the title still?.. even if I am strictly targetting the keyword Domain Name.

    How many pages does your site have?

    Each page should have the targeted keyword for that page in the title.

    If your main keyword is in the domain name, then use that keyword in the title for you home page. Then on the other pages on your site, assuming you have other pages, is to use the keywords of said page in the title.

    All your pages should have unique titles.

    Forget about putting .com in your title.
