Description

This transform will return the title of the sites front page as a web title entity. It will do its best to follow Javascript redirects, 302 redirects and others until it ends on a page with a title. Of course it cannot extract titles for ALL websites - some do not have titles, are Flash based or performs some exotic Javascripting. The transform is useful when dealing with loads of web sites that appears to belong to the same organization. Running this transform and looking at web site titles that match (or simply using Find and looking for keywords) makes it easy to find and group sites.
