Changing Page Titles to improve SEO

#1
I'm not a programmer so please bear with me. My site is http://polydog.org
I'm trying to change page titles to improve my SEO. For example, my H1 title is "Featured Threads". I want it to be "Polydog Language Forum". So I dug around, and think that I need to go into the cta_featuredthreads_featured template and modify this code:

<xen:if is="@ctaFtRemovePageTitle">
<xen:h1></xen:h1>
<xen:elseif is="@ctaFtSetPageTitle" />
<xen:h1>{$xenOptions.boardTitle}</xen:h1>
<xen:else />
<xen:h1>{xen: phrase cta_ft_featured_threads}</xen:h1>
<xen:title>{xen: phrase cta_ft_featured_threads}{xen:helper pagenumber, $page}</xen:title>
</xen:if>

Questions:
1) Assuming I'm on the right track, what does the code need to look like to make this change?
2) What other page titles would you recommend I change to improve SEO? Someone suggested editing PAGE_CONTAINER, for example.
3) Any other SEO suggestions?
Thanks.

For the Featured Thread page it's a Style Property.

So assuming your board title is "Polydog Language Forum", you just need to check that.
Otherwise, edit the phrase between the xen:h1 tags and replace it with Polydog Language Forum.

edit the phrase between the xen:h1 tags and replace it with Polydog Language Forum.
It's different, so should the code look like this?

<xen:if is="@ctaFtRemovePageTitle">
<xen:h1></xen:h1>
<xen:elseif is="@ctaFtSetPageTitle" />
<xen:h1>Polydog Language Forum</xen:h1>
<xen:else />
<xen:h1>{xen: phrase cta_ft_featured_threads}</xen:h1>
<xen:title>{xen: phrase cta_ft_featured_threads}{xen:helper pagenumber, $page}</xen:title>
</xen:if>
