How to change the homepage meta title?
I’m having an issue with the meta title of my homepage. My website is
http://www.ottimizzazione-pc.it/. I tried to modify the title using WordPress SEO and HeadSpace2 but none of them worked.
I don’t know why, but there are lots of repetitions in the title.
The meta title should be: Corso di ottimizzazione del computer – introduzione | Corso di ottimizzazione del computer (that is: the title of the page and the site name, but I get:
“Corso di ottimizzazione del computer – introduzione | Corso di ottimizzazione del computerCorso di ottimizzazione del computer | Impara ad ottimizzare il tuo computer”, this includes: the title of the page, the site name repeated twice, followed by the “motto” of the site (sorry I use the Italian version of wordpress, I don’t know how motto is translated in the English version – motto is modified in settings/general just below the site name).
I’m a real beginner in wordpress, don’t know anything about php and this is driving me crazy. Would you help me to fix it?
I could fix it changing the code in the header.php.
<title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>
to replace the previous text:
* Print the <title> tag based on what is being viewed.
global $page, $paged;
wp_title( ‘|’, true, ‘right’ );
// Add the blog name.
bloginfo( ‘name’ );
// Add the blog description for the home/front page.
$site_description = get_bloginfo( ‘description’, ‘display’ );
if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
echo ” | $site_description”;
// Add a page number if necessary:
if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
echo ‘ | ‘ . sprintf( __( ‘Page %s’, ‘twentyten’ ), max( $paged, $page ) );
and it worked.
I don’t actually know why my code in the header was different from
<title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>.
It’s likely I have messed it up while playing with other plugins, but anyway things are ok now.
i think that changes it for every page – so your posts and pages wont have unique meta titles
