    I thought this was resolved because I upgraded the NextGen plugin, but today I realized the problem is still there because it is affecting my Google search results.

    Mr. Patrick's Painting

    Have a title tag and description tag for Yoast SEO and one for NextGen

    Hidden Debug is on.

    I was away for the evening - let me have a look at that tomorrow morning.

    Thanks,

    Would you mind turning on debug mode?

    Thanks,

    Thought it was on. It is on now.

    Ah. Ok, nailed it down. The option to include the description is turned off by *default* when an SEO plugin is detected. The problem is there was no check for *existing* options. ;-)

    You have 3 options:

    - Reset the plugin settings (see Advanced settings page).
    - Uninstall the plugin, and re-install it. I slipped the fix into the current version (shhh). ;-)
    - Wait for the next version. :)

    I always seem to find the strange ones.

    I uninstalled and deleted the plugin and reloaded it.

    But I think it is still doing the same thing.

    Am I missing a setting somewhere?

    I also turned on hidden debug.

    Nope, the second "description" meta tag is no longer there. Might have been from the caching. You can turn off debug mode - you're all good. ;-)

    I am not sure we are on the same page.

    This is what my SEO analysis is picking up

    <meta property="og:title" content="Painting Contractors | St. George UT | Mr. Patrick's Painting" />

    Which is the same as the <title> tag.

    It is telling me I have two meta tags for title.

    We were talking about the "description" tag earlier, not the "og:title" tag. I checked your page again, and there is only one "og:title" tag. Have a look at the Facebook debugger:

    BTW, your image is much too small. Have a look at the "?" popup info on the General settings page for the Image Dimensions.

    js.

    The image it is pulling is incorrect because I haven't set a default image id.

    What was happening is the Bing SEO analysis tool was reading both the <title> tag and the <og:title> tag as the same thing, thereby saying I had two title tags on my page.

    But none of the other SEO analysis tools are doing that so I am just going to leave it alone.

    Lol. Yeah, Bing is out in left field on that one. ;-)
