[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Titles occasionally don't show up in Google News

  • I recently started using this SEO plugin, and I’ve noticed an issue on two different occasions where Google News doesn’t pull the right title for a post. On one instance it pulled the name of the author and the date, while another time it simply grabbed the first line from the article.

    Thus far it’s looking like about 1 in 15 posts is affected. None of these posts have any special settings, so why are they affected?

    To see an example, look at this search in Google News:

    site:gamerfront.net genre

    All of these were posted while using the same settings, however, one has the title “Genre: Action/FPS/RPG” which is the first cell of a table used within the article. I really don’t understand why this would have happened.
