    My site uses Yoast for SEO etc.

    Using Yoast, I have set the home page of my site to appear in Google search results as:

    ‘Driving lessons in Scunthorpe and Brigg : [site name]’

    But it appears the other way round:

    ‘[site name] Driving lessons in Scunthorpe and Brigg’

    See: https://ibb.co/bRDHtYw

    An article on the Yoast knowledge base – https://yoast.com/help/my-seo-title-isnt-displayed-as-i-have-entered-it/ – suggests there could be a conflict occurring with GP.

    Also, it suggests a possible fix as using title-tag and removing <title>

    Does GP support title-tag? I can’t see add_theme_support( ‘title-tag’ ); in functions.php

    If GP does support title-tag, Yoast say I should look for the title element (in header.php?) and replace it with <title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title>

    Any suggestions/assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

    Hi there,

    How long did you wait for after making the change it Yoast?

    It would usually take a bit for Google to reflect the changes.


    I’ve given it a couple of days.

    Should I wait longer?

    Customer Support

    I think it would take longer sometimes.

    There shouldn’t be a conflict.

    I’m using the same thing on my site and it’s working correctly:


    This morning (thre days after installing Yoast) the site title still appears before the text ‘driving lessons in Scunthorpe and Brigg’.

    I’ll keep checking. In the meantime, you don’t think there are any settings in GP that could cause this error?

    Customer Support

    Nope. Lots of people use Yoast and GP and we haven’t had this issue reported.

    Can you check with Yoast’s support?


    I checked with their support first πŸ™‚

    They sent me to you.

    I’ll work it out in the end!

    Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
