Next, look for the “theme.liquid” file and open it. Search for the Facebook pixel code and remove any duplicate codes that you find. Save the changes and exit the code editor.

Step 3: Verify the changes

After removing the duplicate Facebook pixel code, it is important to verify that the changes have been made correctly. To do this, open your website or store in a new browser tab and navigate to any page. Right-click on the page and select “View Page Source”.

Look for the Facebook pixel code and ensure that there is only one instance of the code on the page. If you still see multiple instances of the code, repeat the previous step until all duplicates have been removed.

Step 4: Clear your cache

To ensure that your changes take effect, it is important to clear your cache. This will clear any stored data on your browser and ensure that your website or store loads the updated code.

To clear your cache, go to your browser settings and select “Clear Browsing Data”. Make sure to select the “Cached Images and Files” option and click “Clear Data”.

Step 5: Test the Facebook pixel

After making the necessary changes and clearing your cache, it is important to test the Facebook pixel to ensure that it is no longer double counting.

To do this, go to your Facebook Ads Manager and navigate to the “Pixels” section. Click on “Test Events” and select an event to test. Follow the prompts to complete the test and ensure that the pixel is tracking events correctly.
