Title not correct on category pages

  • Dear Sir/Madam,

    On wegenbouwmachine.nl I use Rankmath to control my SEO.
    However, there is a problem with the <title> of the category pages.

    For the category pages, I optimized the meta title, but the <title> only uses a part of it.
    For example for the category “Trilplaat eenrichting”, the meta title (in wp-admin) is “Trilplaat eenrichting | Ammann machine | Wegenbouwmachine.nl”, but the <title> only uses “| Ammann machine | Wegenbouwmachine.nl”. Also, when I look at the code on the front-end I only see “<meta property=”og:title” content=”| Ammann machine | Wegenbouwmachine.nl”>”, so not the whole meta title as in the back-end.

    To me, it seems that %title% is not working correctly on WooCommerce category pages. To make it more convenient for you to solve the problem, I provided a user on the website in the Sensitive Data box. Remind, that the website is LIVE and you can break things.

    I hope you can help me,

    Kind Regards,

    Joren Wouters

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    I am sorry but the password is not correct for the temporary account. Could you please generate a new password so that we can check the issue for you?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.



    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Hi Joren,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    When it comes to category pages, it is not recommended to use %title% since you are on a term/category page.
    I have replaced the following variables on the affected category page:
    %title% %sep% Ammann machines %sep% %sitename%
    with the following
    %term% %sep% Ammann machines %sep% %sitename%

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.
