I always use my own skins, with only $WikiTitle and $Title in the 
<title> tag. For $WikiTitle I use a word or a set of words that overall 
describe the contents of the site in terms that may be useful for search 
engines. Equally, I select with (:title:) a $Title for each page that 
relates to the contents of that page.
I've never used the default skin. I see it only as a simple example to 
start from to develop your own skins. The beauty of PmWiki is the 
freedom you have to easily and rapidly develop almost any thinkable 
layout of your site, including having for each page a search engine 
friendly <title>.
