Looking through a bunch of sites in my niche, I started to notice that the big boys all have their brand name at the end of their title tag. I also noticed that WebmasterWorld has their brand name in many of their title's and as I dug into other SEO sites, I saw that many of them also used the brand in their title tag.
Is this good SEO? Or is it from the corporate overlords to re-inforce the brand? I know Google gives weight to brands now a days. Is the title tag branding helping SE's in the branding aglo?
