Why does my SEO check say that I have multiple page titles but I can only find one in the code?

If you currently, or have in the past installed an SEO app, additional page titles may be generated by the app.

 

Verify that you have multiple titles:

  1. View your website
  2. Right click and select ‘View Page Source’
  3. Type Control+F (Command+F on a Mac) to open the search box
  4. Search for <title> in the file to find the different titles in your theme
  5. You should see 2 or more results appear
  6. Find the source of the additional titles:
  7. Select ‘Actions’ and  ‘Edit code’ for your live theme
  8. Open the theme.liquid file
  9. Look for a ‘snippet include’ code for the SEO app you use. For example: {% include ‘pluginseo’ %}
  10. Decide which page titles to remove, the ones generated by the app or by the theme

 

Remove the titles generated by the app:

  1. Add an opening comment tag {% comment %} before the snippet include
  2. Add a closing comment tag {% endcomment %} after the snippet include

 

- OR - 

 

Remove the titles generated by the theme:

  1. Add an opening comment tag {% comment %} before the <title> tag
  2. Add a closing comment tag {% endcomment %} after the </title> tag
