You may have changed your homepage. Review:
OPEN YOUR "HOME PAGE" > SELECT PAGE SETTINGS > PAGE NAME SB > index.html > Update the Page Description using you Settings Editor.
Delete the Index.html from your old home page.

ADDING A NEW HOME PAGE:
To install the new page as your home page, select the page > Page Settings > Page Name > enter "index.html" > save. Remove the page name from your previous page.
Next, you can add the new home page to your site navigation menu by selecting the menu > Use the Site Navigation Menu Settings > Links > + to add the page > follow the instructions in the command box to locate your new home page > select the page from your files > OK. Now, you can scroll to the bottom and edit the page title. Since you have only one page, it should now be the only page on the menu and it should appear with the page title you've chosen and it will respond as the home page.
For Sitebuilder plus sites you can use the save as option and rename the desired home page index. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/sitebuilder-plus-rename-pages
