Shopify is adding domain name in product title

Hi, 

Shopify is adding domain name at the end of several product title tags by default. This extra title isn't visible on SERP, but it comes as an error as exceeding the character limit when doing the site audit in Ubersuggest.

How can I fix this?

Thank you

Hi @TeodoraA_,

 

Can you please provide us with an example of how these product title tags are formatted? Where are you seeing these tags?

Hi @Victor ,

 

I see then when checking the page source:

...then they also appear as an error when doing the site audit:

However, this cannot be amended from the product's "Search Engine Listing" section in Shopify, as the title does not contain the domain name:

Thank you!

Thank you for that additional information and the screenshots. I understand you are concerned that your product titles are too long when third party SEO tools are reporting that they also have the website name appended to them. 

 

Shopify SEO is optimized for search engines. While it may be reported using this tool as being too long or not properly optimized, our site structures are and the product title length should not be causing any actual issues. 

 

Editing how these titles are reported to a third party SEO tool would be outside of the scope of support from Shopify services. I am not sure if this could be changed or not. Maybe one of our partners in the community with more SEO experience can chime in with more information.
