Without a descriptive title for each web page, users may find it difficult to find content and orient themselves quickly within a website. This has an effect on users with visual disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and anyone whose mode of operation relies on audio when navigating between web pages.

How to Fix

  • Give each web page a unique title that describes the topic or purpose of the content.
  • Use the HTML <title> element to provide the title of the web page.
  • Consider identifying a web page's relationship to a larger collection of web pages. (For example, "Contact Us | Name of Organization")

Things to Avoid

  • Do not use the same title for every page of your website.
  • Do not use generic titles which do not identify the contents of the web page.
