Page titles and descriptions by template

Page titles and page descriptions display on your site in some templates. In other templates, they don't display.

Tip: If you want search results to show different text, add an SEO title and SEO description for that page.

To learn more, visit our guides on page titles and page descriptions.

Examples

Titles and descriptions usually display at the top of the page, like this example page in the York template:

york-example.png

Some templates display them in other places. For example, Supply shows page titles on Index thumbnails:

supply-example.png

Hide titles and descriptions

For all templates, you can remove a page description by deleting the text from the General tab of Page Settings.

Tip: If you delete a page description, add an SEO title or description instead. These won't display on your site, but they're helpful for SEO.

These template families have tweaks for hiding all page titles and descriptions:

Adding titles and descriptions in other templates

If your template doesn't display page titles and descriptions automatically, there are other ways to achieve the same effect.

SEO titles and descriptions are different

Page SEO titles and SEO descriptions never display on your site. These are useful if your template displays page titles and descriptions, and you want search results to show different text.

For example, you may want to optimize your SEO titles and descriptions with search-engine friendly keywords, while keeping your page title and description shorter, or removing them altogether.

You can add SEO titles and SEO descriptions in the SEO tab of Page Settings.
