Using Velo by Wix?
If you have enabled Velo, each tag will have a "label" and a "value".
  • Label: The text that displays on the tags on your site. It can be translated by Wix Multilingual.
  • Value: The text that gets entered into your database collection. Values are unique identifiers for Velo. They are always in English but will not show on your site.
