Clicking this will take you directly to the page where your duplicate title tags are listed. Scroll down towards the bottom of the page and look at the table to find the location of your pages that have duplicate title tags.

You might not be able to read the full title tag but you’ll know whether it’s the same as another page if you look into the code and double-check it.

Once you find duplicate title tags, go to the admin section and edit the pages. You can use an SEO plug-in to help you optimize your title tags. Make sure that all of your title tags are unique.
