Bad Page Title

Test Weight: very high
The website must contain a precise and meaningful "title tag", a page title. This is based on the following:
  • The title is displayed on the title bar of the browser window.
  • The title is used when setting a bookmark (or favourite).
  • The file title is shown in the browser in the list of pages previously searched.
  • Many search engines offer the title as a hyperlink.
  • Search engines use the content of the title for their search.
  • Website users often only read the first words and should therefore have enough information about the website.
Equally important is the choice of precise and meaningful titles. The content should be summarised in the title, helping users to find the information needed. According to Nielsen, titles should not be longer than 60 characters.
