Problem: Site appearance in Search Results

  • Good morning, Could you please help me?
    I can´t change the order of my site title in search results. It should be : “title”/”site name” , but it shows:”Site name”/”title”.
    When I check in the Advanced SEO Section of RankMath, the Search Preview indicates that the site title appears: “Site name”/”title”, when it is actually not.
    Am I missing anything? Is it possible to change it ? I used Yoast before using RankMath, could it have something to do with that?

    Thanks in advanced
    Carmen

  • Hello,

    ​Thank you for getting in touch with us.

    Could you share your site URL in the sensitive section so we can check from our end?

    ​1. I am assuming that you have already changed the SEO Meta Title and Meta Description with the help of Rank Math:
    Add a Meta Description in Classic Editor:

    Add title and description in Gutenberg:



    ​2. Then, ensure that this is the setting in the Schema tab if Rich Snippets are enabled on your website:


    ​To reiterate, the Schema title must show %seo_title% and the description should show %seo_description% – this will ensure your SEO title and SEO Description that you set up via Rank Math can also be used for your schema details:

    ​3. The next step is to check if your title/description is properly set up in the page source:

    You can use this tool for the same as well: https://www.heymeta.com/

    4. If it matches your settings, then you must check if Google has seen the changes already or not.

    For that, please check when the Google cache was updated for that page:
    a.

    b.

    If the cache date is from before adding the new meta description, then you just have to wait for Google to re-crawl and re-index the page with the new info. If the date is after you made the changes,

    ​Do note that Google sometimes ignores the custom meta info altogether and show something from the page’s content that matches the search intent better.

    The best you can do is optimize your meta tags to try and match the intent of the search/keyword.

    Why the search result title might differ from the page's <title> tag

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know.
