I'm at a bit of a loss as google is displaying my email and website title in the search results. But I don't recall ever putting my email in this field?

 

Could it be that there is another setting in shopify which means my email is being displayed in the google search results...

 

google - pongo london

 

Any thoughts and help appreciated. 

 

Thanks.

Great looking site Sam!

I did notice your email when I searched Pongo London on google, so it definitely isn't a cache issue! I am unable to see your settings, but if you head into Settings and then select Online Store underneath Sales Channels you can see what should be showing up on Google under Title and meta description. If your email isn't there, then it is set up correctly in Shopify.  I would recommend following the instructions available here to force Google to recrawl your site so that your email isn't showing up anymore :)

Much appreciated. 

 

I have updated the recrawl. Whether or not I have actually input the data correclty is another thing, buts its been over 4 days and still not change. As you can imagine is not great for it to look like this. 

 

It actually looks like there might be an issues when it was switched from from http to https. Google is correctly indexing your new Shopify store at https://pongolondon.cc, however for some reason they're still holding onto the result at http://pongolondon.cc with the old title when you search for Pongo London.

 

Any furthers suggests appreciated?

Update your site settings in Google Search Console to use the correct canonicalized version.

Next, submit your sitemap https://pongolondon.cc/sitemap.xml and remove any old ones.

Next, wait.
