Support » Plugin: Web Stories » Question

  • Resolved yesjeffrey



    Do you have any idea why there are 3 title tags showing up on my web story instead of only 1 title tag like normal:

    I asked Rank Math already (SEO plugin), and they said this:

    After troubleshooting, I have found that even after disabling the Rank Math plugin, the issue with the title persists. Since your website is live, I haven’t performed the plugin conflict test, and it looks like some other plugin or the web stories plugin itself is adding an extra title tag.

    Could you let me know if this is something that the Web Stories plugin does?

    In that example above, I see these 3 title tags:

    1. feed/?post_type=web-story | with the href to the Stories Feed
    2. The normal title tag with the Web Story title
    3. And the last one is weird: <title>Curved arrow</title>

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi there,

    There are absolutely no issues with your story. What you are seeing are three entirely different things.

    > feed/?post_type=web-story

    The full HTML code here is:

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Your Dream Coffee » Stories Feed" href="">

    That’s just a link to your RSS feed, with a title attribute, not a title tag.

    This is just so Google and other tools can find your web stories RSS feed.

    > And the last one is weird:

    That’s a title tag within an SVG icon to describe the SVG to screen readers and other assistive technologies.

    This is totally unrelated to the <title> tag in the <head> of your website, which is the one that matters for search engines.

    Again, there’s nothing wrong with these.

    Hey Pascal, thank you for checking!

    Then I’ll leave it like this indeed.
