52. Webpage title is missing text


title text incorrect example

Description: This page has no title.

Context: All pages should have titles defined in HTML.


How to fix it: The web page needs a title describing the topic of the page. The webpage ‘title’ is added in the page ‘head’. The first thing a screen reader encounters when the web page has loaded is the text within the ‘title’. If the title does not describe what is on the page, you are making it very difficult for users who rely on HTML mark up to determine what page they’re on. You could also think of a search engine as a visually impaired user of your site, who may be put off pages on your site if the title does not relate to the content.
