Hello,
I've updated a blog title, however
it's still showing the old title in the browser.
How do I update this?
Thanks in advance.

Hey Melanie,

If you change the URL of a post or page that Google has already indexed, all you need to do is provide a redirection link from the original post title to the new title so that Google's serps don't offer their users a broken link.

When you do that, you keep Google happy and you will not be penalized for changing the URL.

Hope this make sense and that it is helpful information.

Thank you Trish, I will try this.

You may need to empty the browser cache, refresh, and try again. You can also try the URL in a different browser or mobile device.

You can also empty the servers cache.

Did you click update plus you can clear your cache and refresh the browser

Yes, I did all of the above.
I think it may have something to do with "slug"
I don't know how to fix that.

Thanks for responding Andrej.

You can change the title of the post but don't change the url as Google will treat it as a duplicate post

So the URL cannot be change, is that correct?

I guess it best to delete it, and repost it.

Well it can... but it's a bit more advanced.

There is a plugin called 301 redirects that allows you to:
1. remember the old url
2. update the url
3. tell it to map the old url to the new url

Then you tell google about the new url
(I didn't say it was easy, but you asked!)

Michael

Okay, thank you Michael,
I'll see what I can do.

Also once you set your keyword URL, you can change the title anytime to something more punchy and engaging.

Abie

Thank you Abie.

No problem :) You're welcome.

I need to edit my niche description in the Hubs area,
but I do not see the "edit button"

There's an edit button for "Brand" above the niche description,
again no

Brand but NOT niche You can create a new bub and add an existing website :)

Hi Abie, thanks for the video, it's been very helpful and exactly what I needed.
Thanks again.

Np :)

When you go to your hub after the name of your niche there is an edtt brand click that and change your niche brand if you don't see that then clear you cache and refresh the browser as it is there.

Thank you Andrej.
I understand and see the "brand" button.

I'm asking about the "niche description" directly below the "brand" button.

There is only one button now so in the box just type your chosen niche

Got it! Thanks.

Wonderful to hear
Enjoy your day and week ahead

Somehow my site password got deleted from Word Press,
but I can still access WP via another user that's on there.

Should I create a "new user" for myself on WP?
O

You can reset your password for your WordPress in the site manager.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

If you get a Synchronize button, you may click it as well :)

Any issues going forward, you may reach out to site support.

Thanks Abie,
I don't see any "reset" button.
My login details are complete gone, I may need to regenerate it in WP as suggested by Catherine.

You can always reset the password in the "site manager". Link above.
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Have you cleared the cache and refreshed your screen saw a different result?
https://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache

Still no "reset" button.
If possible can you please send me a screen shot of where the reset button is hiding.

Thanks

See image says "reset password"

Ah..., the problem is, my login ID is missing, so I cannot reset it.
It needs to be regenerated.

Thank you.

So you do not have a website??

You can create another in the hubs
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/hubs#training

I figured out what happened.
I'm switching themes, and some how everything got deleted.
It's all good, getting it sorted.

The theme has nothing to do with your login password, unless your screen has gone white in wich case, site support can help out here :)

Please keep us updated on your progress :)

You can create a new password yes

Awesome, thank you Catherine.

Hello all, after installing AIOSEO plugin, my “All Post” page category when wonky, I tried everything from clearing cache, to restarting my PC and it’s still

Is your browser/device up to date?

Good question, it could be my browser. I will look into it. thanks Abie.

Please keep us updated on your progress :)

Site Support fixed the issue.
Thank you Abie, you're awesome.

That's really fantastic. I am truly happy for you :)

Have you been to site support yet?
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

I just submitted a ticket.

Thank you.

You are welcome :)

It depends how it is distorted. For now disable the plugin and then see if it is still distorted. That will allow you to workout if it is thge plugin. Not all plugins are compatible with all websites. If it is that plugin delete it and choose another such as Yoast seo or rank math. If it isnt that plugin then we need to know what the distortion is, either send the URL or a screenshot

I disabled Yoast SEO, and enabled AIOSEO, I may have to switch back. I also have elementor pro installed, which I'm thinking of eliminating.
Hope the screen shot is viewable.
Thanks Catherine.
