Can we use multiple titles in one page? Is it bad for search engines?

No you can not.

Your page needs to have exactly one <title/> element. For sub-sections of a page where you would want to use other titles, you need to use <h1>,<h2>,...,<h6> elements.

For example,

HTML Code: [ Select ]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
   <title>Main Subject of the Page</title>
</head>
<body>
   <h1>Title of something pertaining to Main Subject</h1>
      <p>Content about title of something pertaining to Main Subject</p>
     
      <h2>Further granulated title related to title of something pertaining to Main Subject</h2>
         <p>Content ...</p>
</body>
</html>
  1. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
  2. <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
  3. <head>
  4.    <title>Main Subject of the Page</title>
  5. </head>
  6. <body>
  7.    <h1>Title of something pertaining to Main Subject</h1>
  8.       <p>Content about title of something pertaining to Main Subject</p>
  9.      
  10.       <h2>Further granulated title related to title of something pertaining to Main Subject</h2>
  11.          <p>Content ...</p>
  12. </body>
  13. </html>


Generally, the higher the number you're using in your <h#> element, the more granulated and specific the content following the <h#> element will be.

You probably aren't going to go past <h4> or even <h3> in most cases. A lot of people seem to like reserving <h5> and <h6> elements for sidebar headers, navigation markers, and stuff of that nature.

I would consider this a coding error if I saw it. And if you are doing this for SEO, I would say there are better ways to spend your time from building content, to making your site a fun place to be.
