Will AutoPilot change my product titles and descriptions?
Question: Will the app's AutoPilot feature overwrite my product titles and descriptions? I want to give my products customer-friendly titles but different SEO-friendly meta titles—is this possible with AutoPilot?
Answer: AutoPilot will not overwrite your product titles and descriptions. Yes, using AutoPilot it is easy to give products SEO-friendly titles while keeping their customer-friendly product titles.
To begin with, here are definitions of a few items that are so easy to confuse with each other:
- Product title: This is what you set in your Shopify admin, and what you see on your site.
- Product description: Also set in your Shopify admin, also what you see on your site.
- Page title: Also called meta title. This is not visible on your site, and it's set through our app either by AutoPilot or by you manually.
- Meta description: Also not visible on your site, and also set by AutoPilot or by you manually in the app.
AutoPilot affects only page titles and meta descriptions. Your product titles and product descriptions will never be changed automatically by the app.
So the only things that AutoPilot will overwrite (if you've set them manually at all) are the page titles and meta descriptions. If you know that you have customized your page titles and meta descriptions, and you want to keep them from being overwritten by AutoPilot, see How can I keep my custom meta tags?
