Checking the Number of Title Tags

Checking the Number of Title Tags


As one of the 50+ elements used for SEO evaluation, SEO MASTER Express checks the number of title tag used in a page.

In the case of multiple title tags, typically it is assumed that Google prioritizes the first title tag used in a given page. As a result, not clearly specifying which title tag you want to appear in the search results page may be a problem, as a title tag not specified in the HTML structure may result in less than ideal results for both search users and search engines. The title tag is one of the most effective and easiest tags to optimize among all on-page SEO elements that affect page rankings, so you need to make sure it is set up correctly within the page.


Avoiding multiple title tags

The number of title tags is the total number of title tags that are describing the <title> statement in the <head> tag. SEO MASTER Express will display an error if there is more than one title tag.

Causes of these types of errors typically include editor software that mistakenly copies and pastes multiple title tags or, in CMS, plug-ins that automatically edit the titles for various pages.

In particular, there are WordPress plug-ins that can separately set a title tag and an H1 tag for individual pages. In this case, despite there already being a description field for title tags within WordPress, the plug-in will add another title tag to the page automatically.

If you intend to prioritize setting title tags using a WordPress plug-in, we recommend finding the description field for the original title tag in WordPress and removing it yourself by accessing “Appearance | Edit”.


An example of mistakenly adding multiple title tags:

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Script-Type" content="text/javascript" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/example/example.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="/example/example.js"></script>
