Page Titles and SEO
Jeremy at SEOMix confirms that the page title hack that flips the order of post title & site name will be beneficial for post-pages trying to bubble up in search results. His ultimate implementation involves the dropping of the site name from post-page titles altogether. So that's the next question. How important is the brand? (not very important if no-one can find it, I guess....)

Thanks for the input, Jeremy, & for copying me on the conversation.

No problem, happy to help. :)

Branding is obviously quite an important factor, but it can be achieved by placing a your site name in a highly visible place on the front page. In most cases, it isn't necessary to include it in the title as well, as this dilutes the keyword density of a page's most important tag.

I usually only put a site name in a title if the site name itself contains relevant keywords...
