Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Titles won't update in Google

    I’ve been using the SEO plugin for a short time now and it seems great but after my initial setup and then later changing page titles google won’t re-index any of my page titles… I would imagine this has to do with the plugin not submitting a site update or the sitemap correctly… The page titles are update on my site but the updates won’t go through to google and I can seem to figure it out.

    I have webmaster tools setup correctly and I do know to some extent what I am doing. Any help would be appreciated.

    How long have you waited? Google seems to crawl new pages a whole lot faster than that it updates old pages at the moment. This doesn’t have anything to do with my plugin though: it does ping Google and it does change the sitemap when you update a post.

    I waited a while and they finally updated. Here is what I did that seemed to work. In the plugin section at the bottom of the page/post editor I changed the option under that advanced tab “Include in sitemap”. I changed it from auto detect to always include. This seems to be it. Not sure if it’s the plugin or what but it worked so cheers. btw… Great work!
