I haven’t submit this plugin to the WordPress SVN yet, because I’m still playing with it. The remaining issue is that while it works, I’m not sure it works in the most efficient manner possible. I’m also going to post it over at @podscms and get some feedback.
At any rate, for anyone who’s running a pods installation and having trouble getting SEO friendly titles on your pod pages, this plugin creates a template tag <?php pods_seo_title(); ?> that you can use to override wordpress default behavior. The plugins check to see if the page is a pod page, and if so calls the title of the respective pod. If not, it checks to see if the page is singular and returns the TITLE | SITENAME format if it is. Otherwise it returns the SITENAME | SITE DESCRIPTION form.
