    Hi @peytongregory,

    Yoast SEO lets you control the title for the default WordPress search results pages under the “Special Pages” section if you go to SEO > Search Appearance > Archives.

    It looks like the property search on your site is a custom search feature, so that might be why this doesn’t work.

    1. If you go to the search page while logged in, is there an option in the top WordPress toolbar to edit the page? If so, it should be possible to change this in the Yoast SEO metabox.

    2. If you go to SEO > Search Appearance > Content Types, is there an option to change the SEO title for this type of post type or taxonomy?

    3. Can you give us more details about what theme features or plugins are creating the example search page?

    Sorry for the delayed response.

    1. There is no option to edit the search results page when I’m logged in.

    2. Yes, the properties post type title is “Properties separator site title”

    3. The search plugin being used is – The search plugin searches the entire website, not just properties. The majority of the results are properties.
