I have been told that in order to be ranked by search engines, the homepage should be thus:


Is this so? I'm a total newb, except for a little html. I just joined today, and will have plenty of questions, I'm sure.

Completely wrong.
It should be like this:
<title>Precise title of your document</title>

Maybe the person that told you that should join here also as it seems they are more of a newb than yourself LOL

Thanks for the answer, this has been troubling me. I didn't see it so when I viewed source code on different websites, but was told something about titling the "homepage" of a website "index.htm" in order to be recognised by search engines. I must have misunderstood.

I think what was ment here is to NAME YOUR FILE index.htm or index.html.
I think that what they mean here is on your main display file (first one that shows when a person visits your site) must be named index.html or index.htm.
Natuarlly if you are using php or asp the extension would change to suit.
