<head> section of an HTML document contains metadata about the document, and as a minimum it must include a
<title> tag defining the document title.
Common causes for this issue are forgetting to define the
<title>, or duplicated
<head> sections where one of them does not include the title.
Here’s an example of a minimal HTML document including the title:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Don't panic! This is the title</title> </head> <body> <p></p> </body> </html>
