Why does the word 'index' appear as the page title, instead of 'home'?

This seems to be a hot topic lately- Google identifying a 'home' page as, for example www.mysite.com/index. After all, this is typically where the name of your page is defined by your title tag. However, the term index can refer to several different things in the context of the web. 

In this case, what we're seeing is how Google identifies an Index page. While we recognize it as a 'home' page, an index page is the identification of the main (or home) page of a web site. 

To put this into context, search engines don't actually search the entire web. Truth be told, they operate from enormous "indexes" of information: videos, documents, web pages, etc. When the search engines send out software (also known as search engine spiders) to crawl the web, they are actively "indexing" new content to be included in that particular search engine's index.

So if you're curious why your home page shows up as www.mysite.com/index, it's because Google has already 'indexed' your home page.

I hope that helps!

You are correct “index” appears at the end of the homepage name because the website page has already been indexed by Google. The search engine uses its own algorithm to index websites. It was actually Ada Lovelace who wrote the first algorithm in the 19th century. It was written for the planned analytical engine. The only downside was no software nor any analytical engine was actually developed based on the Lovelace’s algorithm.

Conveyance is part of it I guess, but I believe that most people cheat out of vanity. We all want to be love and not just loved but adored by someone. After several years in a relationship that adoring turns to complacency and most people just want the feeling of being adored again. Even though there are completely adored by the person they are with.

Because your page title is already indexed by search engine. So that's why the title appears in search engine rather than "home" :)
