How do I customise my pages title and description templates?

Pages are pretty simple on Shopify, but there are still some interesting things you can do on Plug in SEO Plus to improve their SEO.

If the titles and descriptions being generated by default are not best for your shop you have the option to create a custom template using liquid code.
