    Google adding main site name the title tags of pages in the subfolders: How to handle


    Hi community,

    Ours is a WP hosted website. We have given our site title which reflects across all the website page title suffix. Like "Moz SEO" will be default at the title for pages like "Local SEO - Moz SEO".

    We have given different page title suffix to our sub-folders' pages like blog and help guides. For blog we have given "Moz blog" as title tag suffix which was working fine. But Google suddenly started showing main website's title as suffix in pages of sub folders. Ex blog: "How to rank better - Moz blog - Moz SEO". Here we can see "Moz SEO" has been added which is not required. How to handle this?

    Thanks

    Every page must have a unique title so you can modify pages o post manually or if you are using wordpress you can use a plugin like "yoast seo" that it will help you to modify each page or post to have a unique title

    It puzzles me why you don't give actual examples of your issues.

    universo has provided good advice in that titles should be unique, and one possible solution if you're using WordPress.

    Google will change your page title and your description to what it thinks is more appropriate based upon the actual search query used by the visitor. The way you avoid Google doing this is you write a more appropriate title for your web pages. Then Google will not change them in most cases.
    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !
