    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the site title on Wordpress? When i say site title i mean the one that comes up when you do a search in Google for your site. I've already tried editing it through the General - Settings page on Wordpress but it doesent seem to have changed? It's been well over a week so i am guessing Googles spider would have picked up on the change by now?

    Thanks

    Check the cache of your website. If it's still showing an older version, it might not have been spider-ed yet. Can definitely take longer than a week if your site is new.

    Does the new website name not appear at all on your website? If so, try refreshing the page, I find myself having to do this when I make any changes to my websites.

    This is easy to change clear cache and history and refresh page after you changed title.

    Are you using an SEO plugin? If yes, you have to change your title via the settings page of the plugin you are using.

    I have already cleared the cache on my website after i changed the site title and my site is not new. I don't have any SEO plugin running currently. Is there anything else i can try cause it still ain't changed and it's been over two weeks now?

    Try to ping the domain or use some of these paid linkindexing service. You can send me the url by PM and I will be happy to put it in there to see if it makes any difference.. just a try.
