Hi @Pipsandoats 

 

Have you set up a Google Search Console account for your store? It's a tool that helps you to communicate with Google and informs them about your store structure and pages. As a new store, Google does not crawl your store pages regularly so they have the "outdated version" of your store pages.

 

To make sure Google has the latest pages in their database, you've to set up this account and request for them to update to the latest version. Note: after you inform them, your request goes into a queue. It can take a few days up to over a week for them to crawl your pages and shows the most updated version on search results. This is because Google allocates the least amount of resource to sites with minimal to no traffic, so you've to be patient.

 

Hope that helps. If you need more details, you can check out one of my videos:

Good luck!
