Sure just use the  Page.Title property to change the title to whatever you want.

if results=1 then
Page.Title = "Title2
end if

I don't think that is going to do it.
Here is some code.

I want to display companyname in the title
                    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sdsCompanyDetails" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectDbMilitary %>"
                        SelectCommand="SELECT [CageCode], [CompanyName], [DBA], [DivisionName], [State], [City], [AddressLine3], [AddressLine2], [AddressLine1], [SicCode], [Fax], [Phone], [Country], [ZipCode] FROM [vwCageCodes] WHERE ([CageCode] = @CageCode)">
                            <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="CageCode" QueryStringField="cage" Type="String" />

Sure just do something like this with your pageload and another sub.

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not Request.QueryString("cage") Is Nothing Then
            Dim cagecode As String = Request.QueryString("cage").ToString
        End If
    End Sub
    Sub Loadtitle(ByVal _cagecode As String)
        Dim data
        Dim strSQL = "SELECT top(1) [CompanyName] FROM [vwCageCodes] WHERE ([CageCode] = " & _cagecode & ")"
        Dim sSqlConnectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ConnectDbMilitary").ToString
        Dim SqlConn As Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection = New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(sSqlConnectionString)
            'Specify the SQL string
            Dim SqlCmd As Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand = New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(strSQL, SqlConn)
            data = SqlCmd.ExecuteScalar
            Page.Title = data.ToString.Trim
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
