Usage Notes and Guidelines: All Pages
- Match the title bar text as close as possible the the page title, which is the piece of meta data that appears in browser tabs and as the title of a page search results. The title bar is one of the first things a person sees and reassures them they have come to the right page if the title bar and page title match.
- Always use primary keywords in the title bar that are related to the main topic of the page.
- Keep title bar text as short as possible. A good rule to follow is keeping the length of text to one line in desktop view, about 25 to 30 characters including spaces.
- A subhead is added to the to the title bar for Secondary Overview Pages and all Interior Pages. The subhead should match the title bar of the section a specific page is in. (Example: In the Secondary Overview screenshot above, the Resources and Tools page is within the Guild Association section.)
