Support » Fixing WordPress » Is There a Different Way to Enter the Site Title?

  • I recently replaced the default banner for the Silveray theme I’m using on my site with a custom banner.

    I had to go into my settings in WordPress to remove the Site Title and Slogan, because they were showing up in the new banner, which obviously didn’t look good.

    The problem I’m now facing, is that when Google indexes my site, or when I share posts on Facebook, my website is now showing up as “Blog Archive” now, instead of the intended name/title for my blog.

    To see an example of this, click here, which is a link to Google results for my site. It should be the sixth-ranked result on the first page.

    Is it possible to enter the title somehow so that it doesn’t show up in the banner, but it still shows up in Google and other places when I share my posts?

    Go to dashboard, appearance, header image and color, advanced, “toggle text display”.

    Hi,

    Removing the site title and description wouldnt cause google to show “blog archive” in listings for your site.

    What i think you’re after is the ability to alter your title tags.

    Easiest way to do this is to use a plugin such as the all in one seo pack.

    If that doesn’t do the trick just let me know.

    KMessinger,

    When I go to dashboard, appearance, I don’t see “header image and color…”

    I’m still on WP 3.1.1. Is that in the newest version, or something?

    rxhost,

    I installed that plugin. What do I do now?

    I thought I read that you don’t have to do anything after installing it, so I went to one of my blog posts and refreshed the browser, and now the blog title is showing up in the title at the top of the screen instead of “Blog Archive”.

    Should I just trust that whatever changes the plugin made will reflect in Google once my site is indexed again in the future?

    The plugins changes should reflect in google next time your site is crawled.

    If you want to fine tune, there’s a settings page somewhere.

    I think you’ll be ok if you do nothing more.

    Problem solven, I guess.
