    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I have a very quick question that I have been unable to find a solution too.

    When I type in (city name + niche) and find my site on the google listings, this comes up as the title:

    City + Niche (which is what I want) but then has my url appear after it. For example

    Chicago Dentists | Dentists in Chicagowww.chicagodentists.com

    I am using YOAST for my SEO but can not locate why this is happening. I just need the url to go away in the title.

    Your thoughts are very much appreciated.

    I guess you are using wordpress. Go to "Setting", then go to "general". Make sure the title or tagline is not URL. After making changes, please preview it again using this Google tool Hope this help :)

    Awesome. Thank you this worked. I deleted the title so now it is blank. I hope this does not affect SEO, as I do not think it will.

    You are welcome. No worry about that, it will not affect SEO at all as long as you have Yoast to optimize your meta tag, title and keywords :)
