HTML Title Tag

The HTML title tag is used to define the title of your webpage. The title element is placed between the HTML head tag. Whatever you include inside the <title></title> is the title of your document.

  • The title will be placed in the browser toolbar.
  • This title is also placed as the title for your entry on a search page.
  • This title is also placed as the title for a favorite when added.

The title element is required when building a webpage and it is also helpful for search engines.
