(Here’s a slight change that makes this useful suggestion more useful
and robust!)

You said:

  "EWW seems to only update the title data when creating a new EWW
  buffer and not after you've followed one of the links in that buffer."


M-x eww
https://www.olivertaylor.net/notes/emacs-extending-bookmarks.html RET
M-: (plist-get eww-data :title)

...produces "It's Magit! A Git Porcelain inside Emacs".

So, the problem isn’t that the title data isn’t updated; upon
investigation, the way the bookmarks.el logic works requires you to set
"defaults" as part of the record.  This adjustment works for me:

(defun oht-eww-bookmark-make-record ()
  "Make a bookmark record for the current eww buffer"
  `(,(plist-get eww-data :title)
    ((location . ,(eww-current-url))
     (handler . oht-eww-bookmark-handler)
     (defaults . (,(plist-get eww-data :title))))))

^^^^Note the further level of nesting here as well.

>From bookmark-make-record-function docs:

... The returned record should be a cons cell of the form (NAME . ALIST)

(All told, this motivates further investigation and use of Emacs
