I have published my web site a week ago. I have main page with title:

drinkIt - Конструктор коктейлей

and bunch of child pages (items) with titles like:

drinkIt - <item name>

It works fine for users, but in google search results (site:drinkit.guru) each item page appears with duplicate title:

drinkIt - <item name> - drinkIt - Конструктор коктейлей

How can I avoid this?

P.S. Site made like SPA with EmberJS.

    Have you tried putting the brand name (drinkIt) at the end rather than at the beginning of titles? Jun 20 '16 at 8:03
  • Nope. I'm afraid that will change words order. Or no?

  • I think Google is seeing "Конструктор коктейлей" (designer cocktails) as your brand because of the positioning of it in your title. I suspect if you made your titles "Конструктор коктейлей - drinkIt" and "<item name> - drinkIt" then Google would correct itself. Jun 20 '16 at 8:57
  • Interesting... I will try this. Also, I found a notion that google adds brand name (home page title) to all short titles. Maybe it is a reason.

  • It adds the brand to short titles, but only if it doesn't think they already have the brand in them. Jun 20 '16 at 11:50

After all I have changed my titles to: <item name> - drinkIt and it's really work. So brand name positioning in the title is really important for google.
