The default title and description templates are used when there isn't a template for the page type (collection/product/article/blog/page/homepage/search/404) being viewed and a title/description hasn't been manually entered in your Shopify admin 'Edit website SEO' section of the collection/product/article/blog/page.
It's more preferable to have title and description templates set up for all of the page types (collection/product/article/blog/page/homepage/search/404), but this default title and description acts as an SEO fallback in case you haven't created them yet.
Plug in SEO Plus automatically generates a default title and description template. If the titles and descriptions being generated by automatically are not best for your shop you have the option to create a custom template using liquid code.
