  • Hi,

    There’s a strange title that I cannot find anywhere on my site. “Rockabilly klänningar”

    Strange SEO Title

    I have search the database and been going through the settings but cannot find it anywhere.

    Thank you for your help!

  • ​Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    ​1. First of all, 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 if everything’s fine and Google still decides to show a different meta title/description for your search keyword, there is nothing you can do as 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. Thank you.

    Thank you Alberto for your great descriptions and help. Really appreciate it.

    Yes, it is a problem with the product categories in WooCommerce and I can’t find a way to edit specific categories, except in Settings > Titles & Meta, but then it’s general.

    I replaced this “%category%” in Category Archive Descriptions. Does it solve the problem you think?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    %categories% fetches data from your general posts categories which are usually not the same as product categories.

    To edit meta for specific Product categories ensure you have enabled the SEO metabox under Rank math > Titles & Meta > Product Categoriess then head over to Product > Categories as shown in this screenshot: https://i.rankmath.com/KYSyeF

    Hoe this helps you. Thank you.
