Why are my meta tags not updating in Shopify?

Question: The app says it's improving my SEO code, but in my Shopify admin I see the same meta tags as before (page title, meta description, image alt tags). So the app doesn't seem to be working. What's going on?

Answer: The app will not overwrite Shopify's meta tags, it will just override them in the source code of your pages, so that Google uses our app's meta tags instead of Shopify's. In other words, what you see in your Shopify admin is not what's actually in your site's code, but just what Shopify would apply to the code if it (rather than our app) were managing SEO. This means that changes to meta tags in the app will not be reflected in your Shopify admin.

If you want to verify that our app is applying its improvements to your pages, here's a video how-to on checking your site's source code.
