You need to do three things:

1. Write a RESPMOD adapter that find "page titles" in HTTP response bodies. Note that not all HTTP responses contain "web pages" and that some "web pages" are delivered using multiple HTTP responses. This is the most complex part of the whole project. Please see the linked FAQ below for some of the reasons why it is not going to be easy, even though you are not going to modify the page.

2. Teach the adapter to report the found page title via eCAP adapter transaction options (a.k.a., metadata). See the libecap::Options API and search Answers for more information about it if needed.

3. Configure your host application to log transaction metadata from #2 to access log. For example, in Squid this can be done using %note logformat field.

FAQ #1793: “Can I inject ads into pages?”.

Can you help with this problem?
