I'm trying to figure out how to stop Google search results from showing the category/subcategory in the product title. For for a product named "Nilfisk Euroclean GD930 HEPA Vacuum", this is what shows: 

 

Abatement :: HEPA Vacuums :: Nilfisk Euroclean GD930 HEPA ...

 

 

We do have the SEO addon on activated (CScart 4.7.1), with Product URL set to include category/subcategory. I'd prefer not to have to turn it off and lose that functionality, and also have tons of redirects to worry about. 

 

Is there any other way to force google to not use the URL for the search result title? 

 

Thanks, 

Malcolm

If you leave the product's page title blank, CS will use the product name and category as you describe.

If title is not defined, it is generated from breadcrumbs. As a result, you see title in such a way.

 

This behaviour can be changed in the design/themes/THEME/templates/index.tpl file

{if $page_title}
    {$page_title}
{else}
    {foreach from=$breadcrumbs item=i name="bkt"}
        {if $language_direction == 'rtl'}
            {if !$smarty.foreach.bkt.last}{if !$smarty.foreach.bkt.last && !$smarty.foreach.bkt.first} :: {/if}{$i.title|strip_tags}{/if}
        {else}
            {if !$smarty.foreach.bkt.first}{$i.title|strip_tags}{if !$smarty.foreach.bkt.last} :: {/if}{/if}
        {/if}
    {/foreach}
    {if !$skip_page_title && $location_data.title}{if $breadcrumbs|count > 1} - {/if}{$location_data.title}{/if}
{/if}

You can also use index:title hook to do it
