I just updated to a new theme and noticed that I'm getting critical issues with my products due to a duplicated Brand field. How can I correct this?

This is an accepted solution.

Nevermind, I figured it out. The SEO app was adding the extra brand and once removed the problem was gone.

Hi Lychee88

I seem to be having the same issue, did you delete the seo app and get a new one or did you ask them to remove the extra brand?

I had to delete the SEO app that I've used for over three years and it went away.  🙂

I only suspected it after seeing another poster with the same problem and a Shopify Expert chimed in that it was the SEO app. I tried it and it was the reason all these years I was having an issue.

I was using SeoAnt, since removing the app I found it fixed my problems.

Mine was SEO Manager and I'm glad I got rid of it. $20.00 a month for 3 years to basically cause SEO issues.

I have had this app for a long time too and often wonder if it is causing some of the recent issues we have been having with international feeds and currencies showing on google and pinterest rather than USD. Now we have the duplicate brand critical alert in google... I was searching around and came across this thread. What issues did you find SEO Manager caused? Did you switch to a new seo app? Any issues doing so? Thanks!

For me, it was Judge.me, the review/rating app. As soon as I uninstalled it, the error was gone in Google Search Console.

I faced the same issue. But when I uninstalled the "Strong SEO" app. The "duplicate brand" issue has started to be resolved. It has validated 7 out of 14 items so far. The remaining ones are being processed.

Hi @ahsan_aadesgins,

 

It's Lee from Strong SEO here. Sorry about the issue you had with this error. You're right that our app previously may have caused this issue.

 

Good news! There's no longer a need to uninstall Strong SEO. We have added a feature to prevent duplicate fields and the details are on our website here: https://strongseo.app/duplicate-field-brand/

 

All the best with your store 🙂
