A  Google appearance trick to show how to change Title with your name

Sometimes you may need to impress your friends with your name appearing on the main screen. This can only be done temporarily as once you clicked the search button it will go back to default Google.

Previously it used to be http://www.pimpmysearcher.com, but due to trademark issues pimp my search is closed for ever.  But still if you want a custom home page you can make it via shinysearch.com

It comes with different styles all you need is to type in your name or word you wanted your search screen to appear as..

Now if you want to make it as your home page, you can still do it…
