But in case of the front page it should be only the title of the
website/blog. Page topic, keywords and description provide other (SEO)
information. But I also see a problem in using the <title> because
unfortunately it's used for other purposes regarding SEO, too.
So there's no other way than placing this piece of information within
the format. The title-attribute within the achor to the blog, as Robert
Bachmann submitted, would be a good practice.
