    Hi, I didn’t notice this before (or it happend over time) but all my WordPress sites which are using YoastSEO are not displaying correct title in google set for the homepage. Don’t you know what can be causing this? Thanks.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that title is displaying correctly in the tab in the browser, google however is using tottaly different title, mostly just one word (company name, all small letters..).

    Have you checked the source code of the page to see whether the title is being output by the plugin as expected?

    Whereas Google typically uses the title from the metadata for indexing, this is not always the case. Google will sometimes modify the title of the URL as it sees fit, as well as sometimes adding the brand or sitename to the end of your title. This is not due to the plugin not functioning as expected, but rather is due to Google modifying the Title it indexes as it’s algorithm has concluded that there is a better version to index.

    We also have additional information on this topic available at the following links: https://yoast.com/google-page-title/ and https://kb.yoast.com/kb/google-shows-different-titles-for-my-site/. Please refer to these articles as the include recommendations for crafting a page title which will help increase the likelihood that Google will use the title you specified instead of modifying your page’s title as it sees fit.
