How to Fix The Problem

The title element in the head section should be non-empty. All HTML and XHTML documents, including those in individual frames in a frameset, should have a title element in the head section that defines in a simple phrase the purpose of the document.

The Algorithm, In Simple Terms

The engine scans for an empty <title> element inside the document <head>.

Why Is It Important?

A descriptive document title allows users to quickly and easily identify whether the information contained in the web page is relevant to their needs.
