Hi there,

I'm trying to improve my SEO and would love to use the whole characters that Google allows me on my page titles. The problem is that the shop name shows up at the end of every page title by default and there is no way to change this within admin itself.

Is there any expert willing to lend a hand please? I'm sure there is the way to change some code to stop my Shop name showing up.

Many thanks in advance.

All the best,

Hey there!

Patrick, a Shopify Guru here :). 

I had a look at your store from google and I'm not seeing you store name being added to the end of the page title

Is this correct of am I missing something?

Hi Patrick,

Many thanks for your answer. I'm sorry, I din't explain myself. The name appears everywhere (collections, pages and products) less in the main page. Here it is an example:

http://www.sensualove.com/collections/disfraces-sexy

https://www.google.es/?gws_rd=ssl#q=disfraces+sexy+sensualove

I really appreciate your help.

Best,

Marta

Hi, Marta! :)

Patrick here again.

Thanks for the clarification, I see what you mean now by having your store name at the end of your title description.

That kind of information is usually hard coded into your theme in the <head> section. I'm not a coder myself, but I did find some other forum post with other merchants having similar issues

Hopefully, that helps :)

Hi Patrick,

Thank you again for your help. I've checked both links and you are right, this is what I need to sort out. Anyway, my line of code looks quite different and I don't dare to touch too much.

Could anyone please help me and let me know what I should change on my code to delete the name of the store at the end of the page titles? Please, find below the code:

{% if template == 'index' %}{% if page_title contains 'Welcome' %}{{ shop.name }} &ndash; Welcome{% else %}{{ page_title }}{% endif %}{% elsif template == '404' %}{{ settings.404_title }}{% elsif page_title contains shop.name %}{{ page_title }}{% else %}{{ page_title }} &ndash; {{ shop.name }}{% endif %}

Cheers,

Marta
