Quick Tip: Page Titles
A succinct, yet descriptive page title is important for accessibility. WCAG requires that the title describe the topic or purpose of the page for Level A conformance. Because the page title is often the first thing viewed or heard by users, it should be kept brief, yet accurately describe the page content and differentiate it from other pages on the site. The page title is often used when navigating browser tabs or windows, so is important for all users. For web applications, it is advised to update the page title dynamically to reflect the current view or state of the application.
