Support » Plugins » [Plugin: All in One SEO Pack] The title tag on my blog with AIO-SEO gets overridden by the home’s ti

  • destinationonup


    Even when using AIO SEO on my blog’s title tag, it gets overridden by the title tag used for my home page. Because the title tag, meta description, and meta keywords go along from home to the blog page, Google is considering these pages to be duplicate content.

    How can I fix this problem?

    did you ever get this figured out.
    i am kind of having the same problem



    I was wondering the same thing. Please help!

    Have you tried removing the title tag from the corresponding template in your theme? It’s usually in the header.php file.

    This post is old, but I had the same problem – and every search result in every search engine used the value I had set for the home page title. A couple of weeks ago, I turned off the rewrite titles option for All-in-One SEO and wrote my own function in functions.php to display a customized title. My search results are making sense again!

    I have the same problem, may have to ditch AIOSEO for this

    Yeah, I have the same problem. Will try turning off the rewrite titles.

    Anyone having this problem, feel free to email me at and I’ll take a look. Most installations aren’t having this issue, and I can’t seem to recreate it under any of my development environments.
    Reference this thread so I know who you are. 🙂

    Did anyone solve this problem, Im having the same issue with my homepage. Everything else appears correct though.

    I can verify that this is happening on different server / installations for me too – three hosting accounts – bluehost, lunaprpages and smAll one in Portland –

    Most notable, it’s happening at my main site – SEO Automatic

    As defined in the All in One page edit options for the page designated to display my posts – My title and desc tag for the blog SHOULD be this –
    There should be a unique title tag here – but there’s not!
    There should be a unique desc tag here – but there’s not!

    The “blog” located here –

    It may be a little late, but I experienced the same issue with my blog and discovered it was due to an interference between the AIO plugin and my theme. The AIO plugin seems to want to be the only one “subscribed” to the ob handler. To resolve the issue I commented out, or you can remove it if you wish, the ob_start() function call from my theme, and viola, the AIO plugin now works.

    To figure out if you have the same issue, search your entire theme folder for “ob_start”. You can expect to find something like:
    <?php ob_start(); ?>. If you see this, remove it, or to keep things simple just comment it out, as such: <?php // ob_start(); ?>.

    You can see it in action at my personal blog

    I havent had much luck finding ob_start, could anyone be specific about which file it was found in or if there is another work around to this?

    I’ve run into the same problem, and written the plug-in author:

    Hello, I’ve run into a problem it looks like a few other users have as well:

    Specifically, here is the issue:

    I have created a privately hosted blog with a static Page named “Home”. I have created a second static Page named “Blog”. In the WordPress Settings – Reading section I have set “Front page” to “Home” and the “Posts page” to “Blog”. I don’t think this is especially unusual.

    By default, without AiOSEO enabled, both the Home page and Blog page will have titles of just “Blogname”. Unfortunately, AiOSEO does this as well: any changes made in the AIOSEO Options page to the “Home Title:” section appear on BOTH the “Home” page (the default static page that appears when the site loads), as well as the “Blog” page (the one where posts appear).

    I have tried adding a custom title to both pages in the AiOSEO section of the respective pages where you can specify a different title. This field works correctly for other static pages, overwriting the default title, but not these two pages.

    To address this problem I would like to make two suggestions:

    1. AIOSEO should take into account when the user has a separate home/main page on the site, and posts page, and allow for creating different titles and tags for each.

    2. AIOSEO should allow title/description/keywords entered into the Page itself to supersede defaults in the AIOSEO settings page.
