You may ask me: why to have page titles for views?

Views in Drupal, technically, are used to display a list of content. Translating to business language, it will be used for category pages. For example, if you build a shopping website in Drupal to sell mobile devices, you will use "views" to construct the page of Apple products (and also Samsung products, LG products, etc ...)

These category pages are very important (second most after your homepage). You will definitely want they appear on top of Google search results for relating keywords. To achieve it, one of the best SEO practices is to set good focused titles for them.

When I developed the website for Exotic Voyages, a luxury travel agent, it has many category pages. They are pages for hotels, tours, destinations, cruises, photos etc ... all are built by Drupal 7 views. The SEO team of Exotic Voyages required me to let them set custom titles for these pages.
