XF 1.5 Remove Thread Prefix from HTML Title for SEO Purposes

#1
Hey Guys,

Is it possible to remove the Thread Prefix from the actual HTML Title
for SEO Purposes.

As you know the earlier that a Keyword comes in the title the better
it will rank for that word.

So for example let say I have i have a thread with a Video of a Dog
Chasing a Cat

The Thread Title on Xenforo would be: "Dog Chases Cat" and the HTML Title for Google
search results would be "Dog Chases Cat" and it would hopefully rank well for that term

If I use a Prefix entitled "Video" so my users can find all the Videos the
the HTML Title for Google search results would be "Video - Dog Chases Cat" which
might not rank as well for "Dog Chases Cat"

Edit thread_view template and remove the thread prefix variable from the top title tag.

Code:
<xen:title>{xen:helper threadPrefix, $thread, escaped}{$thread.title}{xen:helper pagenumber, $page}</xen:title>

@BamaStangGuy there are two lines with Threadprefix in thar Template

<xen:title>{xen:helper threadPrefix, $thread, escaped}{$thread.title}{xen:helper pagenumber, $page}</xen:title>
<xen:h1>{xen:helper threadPrefix, $thread}{$thread.title}</xen:h1>
