You'll need to edit the file theme.liquid in your theme for this, and this is a delicate operation. It is best to turn to someone who has knowledge of HTML and Liquid for this.

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Online Store, and then click Themes (or press G W T).

  2. Find the theme you want to edit, click the ... button, and then click Edit HTML/CSS.

  3. On the Edit HTML/CSS page, look under Layouts for theme.liquid. Click it to open it in the online code editor.

  4. Find your title element between the <head> and </head> tags:

    <title> ... SOME CONTENT HERE ... </title>

    Replace the tag with this:

    {{ page_title }}{% if current_tags %} &ndash; tagged "{{ current_tags | join: ', ' }}"{% endif %}{% if current_page != 1 %} &ndash; Page {{ current_page }}{% endif %}{% unless page_title contains %} &ndash; {{ }}{% endunless %}
  5. Save your file.

  6. Finally, you need to update the home page title and meta description in your Shopify admin. Click Online Store, and then click Preferences. In the Title and meta description section, enter your home page metadata in the Homepage title and Homepage meta description fields.
