    Hi guys,

    I changed my title on one of my sites, and I'm noticing that Google just changed it to my brand name, rather than changing it to my title tag like yahoo and bing. My description has changed but not the title, has anyone found a way around it, this is huge problem.

    Joey,

    Yes I've noticed it and no there is not way around it. You can try using schema tagging to make your data more easily digestible by Google however it clearly states in there quality guidelines that they can choose whatever content they want to display in SERPs. That could be from meta or title tags or it could be from somewhere else.

    Best,

    Shawn
