How to fix wrong post title on Google – WordPress Title SEO

WordPress Blog Title SEO

Title SEO – The Symptoms

beside the obvious, a title which you don’t want to show (in my case – showing the name of the blog only instead of article name)
you should check the code behind of the page.

seacrch for the ‘<title>’  meta inside the ‘<head></head>‘ tags. see if this is the real title you want to be shown on google

if the <title> value is wrong either, then your template is mixed up and you need to fix the title in your template, which is out of this article coverage.
if it’s the title you wish for google to show, then do the following:

The Solution

and check:

  • Add

    noodp

     meta robots tag sitewide

  • Add 
    1
    noydir

     meta robots tag sitewide

 

Now give google some time… to see if now it’s fixed…

 

Good luck!
