    The preferred title is output in the source code and cached by Google; however, Google has chosen to display a different title.

    The title you enter in our snippet preview is a suggestion for Google. If you’ve crafted awesome titles for your blog posts, nothing is more annoying than Google showing another title for your site in the search results.

    Google’s generation of page title is completely automated. Google’s goal is to best represent and describe each result. They use a number of different sources to get this information. In doing so, they try to make the search results as relevant as possible. Due to this being handled on Google’s end, there is little you can do to force Google to display your preferred title.

    We have an extensive knowledge base article which can help you understand why Google is showing the wrong title for your site. Please refer to this article for additional details.

    Thank you for your reply! Greg
