    Home Page Title


    Hello all,

    I've just noticed that my home page title is completely different to my other page titles in Google, my home page shows like this "TGF Security: Home" and my other pages show like this "Services | TGF Security" and I would like the home page the same for example "Home | TGF Security" but i'm trying to work out if its a problem with my website or if Google hasn't updated the page title yet. When I click on the home page and hover over the page tab at the top of the page, it is the correct page title so does that mean I need to wait for Google to update it in the search results? or could it be something else?

    Thanks in advance
    P.s my website is www.tgfsecurity.co.uk

    Its generally believed the words appearing first in a title carry slightly more weight so if that theory holds true then your targeting the term Home as your primary word.
    However to answer your question it can take many weeks for google to update a page title change, it depends how often google crawl that page to pick it up. You can submit it to the index via search console but under normal circumstances that's not needed and google find it fairly quick (within a few week if you call it quick).
