    As far as I know the meta tags are always in the <head> section of a file - regardless it's index or something else :)
    In WP the <head> section of every file is in... header.php

    Meta tags are ignored by search engines,a apart from description in the front page. They were more useful in the 90's, before spamming, so do not expect extra traffic. Regardless:

    Hope this helps...

    Would there be any harm in removing the existing title tag from the header file of WordPress?

    WordPress codex gives a conditional description tag that can also be modified to place the same title for individual posts as the post title. Just wondering if the same conditional tag could be used for producing a meta title? They would match exact, but be more likely to reflect the page content...

    Is this pre-existing title tag read by anything? I did this and the url shows at the top of the browser, but the meta does change in the source.

    Not sure how the same exact title and description meta tags would be treated either??
