Add a static text in the <title>

Open the file: libraries/joomla/document/html/renderer/head.php

Search for the next piece of code:

$strHtml .= $tab.'<title>'.htmlspecialchars($document->getTitle()).'</title>'.$lnEnd;

Add your statict text for example:

$strHtml .= $tab.'<title> All about Canada - '.htmlspecialchars($document->getTitle()).'</title>'.$lnEnd;

The text into the <title> tag is very important for the search engines.

If you need obtain a great search results for the word "All about Canada" I recommend your put the static text before of the $document->getTitle();

Other important thing, is don't use symbols like ":", "-", "$", etc for the title.
