    different title in Google


    Hi,

    I am getting different title in Google instead of actual website title. Please, suggest me how to rectify the problem.

    Thanks,
    Shailaja

    Google shows title in SERP based upon user query and also uses data from directory listing sites ( Dmoz ), anchor text links pointing to that page, Social mentions etc. It normally happens when Google thinks that website title is not that much relevant to content.

    • Dice79 : Title based on Query and directory listings? You have either been in a school that teaches pure crap or you love making stuff up as you go.

    Hi Shailaja,

    Welcome to the community. You should optimize the page with proper relevant page title, meta tags and use H tags. After these changes next crawl will not have this issue.

    Google is probably picking up the title from DMOZ - have you checked it there?

    Have you checked your HTML source? Perhaps there is more than one title in there? I would try and discover where the text Google is using is coming from. Check what Google has in their cache, and the date. Have you changed your title since that date? Is your site listed in DMOZ?
