    I use TSF in all of my blogs and I noticed one thing in common whenever I search for my own blog when using mobile.

    The Blog Name doesn’t seem to appear on mobile search results. Instead of the “blog name” it’s showing the complete URL.

    Here’s a screenshot:

    My Breadcrumbs is enabled from the beginning. But it’s been like this forever.

    Am I missing something? Or is this my Themes Fault?

    Thank you for highlighting this issue. It is not your theme’s fault.

    The naming of the site, instead of showing the URL, was something Google abandoned not long ago. They also removed the last entry (current page) of the breadcrumb, as the title implied it. We got a few dozen topics on this entry in the past, and it is still out of our hands.

    Now, these changes seem to have been undone. However, in my country, the “blog name” as the first entry is still not available. The breadcrumbs may be undergoing a regional testing phase again. We’ll have to see how this is going to work out.

    Google proved they recognize your site name, as implied by the “Sitelinks” you have when querying Google Search for only your site name. You can tell because they list the page titles without the site name.

    Your webpage may simply require another crawl for Google to reparse and reindex its findings, whereafter your page may be displayed differently. You can check the status of this on a per-page basis via Google Search Console; there, you can also perform a crawl-request.

    Unfortunately, I couldn’t find more information on this subject. Google did update its developer guideline example image again, but the code we use is still up-to-spec.

    In TSF v4.1, we’re going to overhaul our implementation. The specification is growing and expanding rapidly, and we need to future-proof our framework for this. We believe the upcoming changes will help Google in recognizing your site name for individual pages better.

    Let me know if the recrawling of the affected page works for you. Those findings are critical to our understanding of Google’s recent behavior. Thank you!

    Ok, that makes sense. Ugh. Re-crawling doesn’t make any difference. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen on blogs use Yoast. I love this plugin but please, fix this update in the future.
