TITLE TAG and Cloaked re-direction
From Roy Davies on 6 June '00
I created my first Website for a new company venture at

I aquired a domain name from Easyspace ( my site URL became

and I had this re-directed by Easyspace to my "home" URL above.
I had the option of "cloaked" or "uncloaked" re-direction. Someboady logging on to the new domain name will be redirected to my original URL. It works. I chose the "cloaked" option because it leaves a nicer domain name in the title bar.

HOWEVER great emphasis is placed on the TITLE tag in the Deadlock pages (which are extemely helpful - thanks to all). It seems however that by choosing "cloaked" re-direction I have no Title in the title bar only the domain name. The title of the page is not in the re-directed HTML either. (IT is in the original URL).

Am I correct in saying that a robot will not pick up the title and I have lost this advantage. If so I will have to go back to "uncloaked"
