I’m having some issues with how page titles are appearing on Google. Some pages have our old business name added onto the end of their titles, even though the old name doesn't appear anywhere on our CMS. This is only an issue with Google, as on other SERPs they appear correctly (same title just without the old business name).

The old business name isn't in the page source, and we’ve done a scan of directories for any old references and haven’t found anything, so I’m not sure where it’s picking it up from or how to amend it?

  • There is no such thing as a "meta title." The page title use the <title> tag which is separate from <meta> tags. Furthermore, unlike meta information about the page, the page title is visible to users in the browser tab and title bar. I've edited your question to correct the terminology. Jul 7 '21 at 12:13
