You can configure the template which is used to build the page title in the settings.
It sounds like you have the description entered in this template.
The default template is: “%%title%% %%page%% %%sep%% %%sitename%%”
This does not include the description.
You can find these settings at the “Titles & Metas” submenu under “Post types”
I hope this helps!
I already figured this out two days ago, but thanks for finally getting back to me.
For future reference though, when offering advice on this, it might save some time if you included instructions telling the newbie that in order to even get to the section “Titles & headings” they have to “Enable the Advanced Settings under the FEATURES heading”. It is hard to follow instructions when you can’t even see what the instructor is talking about. Fortunately for me I found a person (non-yoast staff) who told me how to do this.
So far you guys are batting zero as far as helping me. You still have a chance to answer my question about how to measure whether yoast is actually helping my site or not. Still no answer there. Hurry, before I find it on mine own. Remember, the reason you offer a free version, is so that you can show people how good your program and support is, so that they might be encouraged to pay for premium. So far, you have not done very well in encouraging me that it is worth the money. Just saying.
Just calling it what it is. I participate in a lot of support forums for many subjects, and I have never seen a support forum as bad as this one. I have yet to get a single bit of useful help on here. That is the truth. If me saying that is what you called
Entitled”, then so be it. I guess you think that there is great support here. But then you are probably paying for Premium service. I was thinking about paying for premium, but unlike all the other lemmings that just follow the pack and are swayed by Big Claims and Hype, I demand actual proof before I fork money over. So far I have not seen one shred of evidence that Yaost is anything other then a big Hype machine that promises the world but can’t provide a cup of tea worth of real proof it works. That is not to mention the almost non-existent support for new comers like me that are left out in the cold to look for help from other sources.
Please consider hiring a professional. (In this case, one who can handle the demanding needs you have exposed here.)
