Title on index page
title, meta tags, pages

Dear ALL,

my web-site has index.php page, with includes all GENERAL metatags, and has the title. But this file doesn't let me to change the title on other pages while browsing the web-site. Although in page source I could see the specific title of a page, but the browser shows only index.php title.

My questions:
1) if I'd insert titles for each page anyway - would it improve search-ability of my web-site by search engines?

2) how do I change the appearance of the title on not index pages?

Thanks so much!

Answer to Q1
It has much effect.
Answer to Q2
Ask some programmer or the person who developed your site or provide some description about your site

thanks for your reply. I'll add the titles to the web (while they wouldn't be visible for users still).

The code on index.php includes all meta tags and lists pages of the web-site using this code:

<? $page=$_GET[page];
if ($page=="") {$page="introduction"; }

switch ($page) {

case $page=="introduction":
include ("pages/introduction.php");

so only real content of the page is captured from introduction.php, but not title meta tag.

If you could advice on how to correct/edit the code that would be great!
