Can't get rid of "General 2" on browser tab

Populating the SEO titles is no bad thing to do; the field is there in case you want Google to show something different from the Page Title. The Page Title appears as the name of the browser tab when folks are viewing your web page, and it also appears as the bookmark if they bookmark/favourite that page.

By default, Google will pull whatever is set as the Page Title, unless you fill in the SEO title. Since whatever Google pulls from your page will appear as the link in the Google search results, sometimes people choose to use the SEO title include keywords or create a more compelling phrase that will make people want to click. For example:

About Miko Coffey (Page Title)

I know I’ve found this super late, but if no one figured it out… 

In the SEO section click

‘Edit Website SEO Settings’

And in all three tabs -

Home, Pages, Items

You have to change the SEO Title Format to the name you’d like to show on your Tab.

I kept getting "Services-2" and SEO was set up correctly.

It's a bug. If you use a template page, it keeps the title of the original page.


I saved each section and added them to a blank page. Updated the SEO and it finally worked!
