Support » Everything else WordPress » Problem with pingback and Title of all my articles — Challenging Problem

  • 1. Visit – from any search engine.
    2. also visit

    In 1st case, observe the title of all the results shown! All the search result title’s are showing ““, instead of showing the respective article’s title πŸ™ .

    In the 2nd case, visit and scroll down the page(below comment section) to get to the “Trackbacks” section. There observe the trackback from my own blog. Its again showing the title as “” instead of showing the title of the article from which I am linking πŸ™

    The 2nd case confirms that there is problem within our blog and not with Search Engines.

    I have checked all the plugins, SEO plugin etc, everything seems to be working perfectly. Many guys tried to help me, but with no success.
    Please try to help me in over coming this problem….please.
    You can contact me from my contact form anytime. I would be happy to provide any more information.

  • Assuming that in the SEO plugin you have set the title format, just in case… did you check header.php of your theme? Do you have

    <?php wp_title(' '); ?>

    in the <title> tags? It looks like you may only have <?php bloginfo('name'); ?>.

    This reference may help you

    As assumed, my SEO plugins title format is set properly.
    And the codes I am using in my <title> tag is

    <title><?php if (is_home () ) { bloginfo(β€˜name’); }
    elseif ( is_category() ) { single_cat_title(); echo ' - ' ; bloginfo(β€˜name’); }
    elseif (is_single() ) { single_post_title();}
    elseif (is_page() ) { single_post_title();}
    else { wp_title(β€˜β€™,true); } ?></title>

    And its working properly..for confirmation, just see the source code of my blog when you load any single article on my blog. The title tag is working properly.
    When I encountered this problem I was surprised, because title tags are working properly but still there is problem!

    Thanks for trying to help..please guide me, if you know some other solutions.
    Thanks again.

    I tested with other themes and now its confirmed that the problem is with my theme. But I am not sure which file is causing the problem.
    I don’t want to messup with my theme. I have customized a lot of things in that theme(in regards to SEO).

    Does any one know which file in our theme is responsible of creating the pingbacks or trackbacks.

    Please help..please

    It is a premium paid theme, can’t download to test it… looking at your source code, you do have link rel="pingback" in the header.

    See if it reads like this in header.php
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />

    Yes its exactly <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />

    Test anyone of the articles in my blog using

    At the end see the source code that the tool shows. There observe the Title of the article — it shows “”.

    Now visit the same article directly, and see the source code, and now observe the title, it will show proper title.
    I am getting confused day by day. But no solution πŸ™

    Please help.

    Wondering if this can help you, it looks like it was the same problem you have

    Yes, I did run that test, and it shows only the blog name, but the source code from your post shows the post title as well… could you possibly have a plugin conflicting with the SEO one.

    Also, did you try switching to the Default theme, so see how the trackback displays? If all is fine, there is something with the current theme, if not, it could be a plugin issue, or somehow the SEO plugin configuration.

    I tested by switching to WP default theme. Everything works fine with other themes, the issue is only with the current theme.
    Everything was working fine with current theme till date, but suddenly this problem started πŸ™

    I am not sure what I have changed in the theme..
    Plugin are not conflicting..

    I put a fresh copy of my current theme(and things started working fine), but when I customized the logo, sidebar, and style.php the problem started appearing again πŸ™

    I Love the Theme. But ….. please help

    @buddha trance, thanks a lot dude.

    The problem has been solved some how.
    I am testing it again to know the exact cause of the problem. Will let everyone know the about the cause of the problem soon.

    Thanks a lot again.

    The issue is now fixed. And I have written an article about the problem, detection and solution @
