It was brought to my attention that one of the websites our company manages is not showing up correctly. The title tag on the page and company name contains pipes, but google replaced one of the pipes with a colon and rearranged it.
I did a quick search and learned that google does as means to optimize the titles that they "interpret" as having brand names along with company names.
Well google got our company completely wrong and it should NOT being doing this.
For example, Company name = My | Company | Inc
Google is displaying it as: Company | Inc: My
Is it possible to stop google from doing this? I have found a lot of articles about it, but haven't been able to find one that presents a solution.
Worth noting, our actual company name is only 26 characters.
(For the record, I was not responsible for naming the company with pipes, nor am I responsible for the SEO, keyword optimization. But I have been asked to look into it)
