    Hi,

    Thanks for the email! We can see that Yoast is showing the right title. See image: https://pasteboard.co/HZLNnjt.png. To resolve the issue we suggest two actions:

    1. Can you confirm if you use Fetch as Googlebot that the issue is resolved? This will force Google to update the index. You may need to use it several times. This guide explains more: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/fetch-as-googlebot/.

    2. If the same title still shows, Google has decided to change the title and override what you wrote. This guide explains more: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/google-shows-different-titles-for-my-site/

    Thank You pcosta88 for your valuable response and resources link. I have requested fetch as googlebot.

    Let’s see if it works! I’ll update the thread once my problem will be resolved.

    We confirmed that Yoast SEO output the preferred title in the source code. We can also see that Google has cached the preferred title by clicking on the arrow under the title in the search result.

    Ultimately Google will, as you have seen, make the final decision on what they show in their search results. You may see a different title for all sorts of reasons. This article on why Google wont show the right page titles tries to explain it.

    Due to this being handled on Google’s end, there is little you can do to force Google to display the preferred title. The best advice I can provide, unfortunately, is to try different titles. This article provides advice on crafting good titles for SEO.
