Regarding Jay's video, SEO 101 - The Basics from April 17, 2020, he showed us how to put Meta Title. I have tried to put Meta Title on my post as Jay says, however, I am unable to do it because it counts letters of my website name. Could you tell me where and how should I put Meta Title in my word press dash board?
Thank you very much.

Not at all. Can you take a look at my screen shot? According to Jay's video, SEO101 - The Basics, we should write Meta Title there, but my site name is on my way. Do you know why?

Hi, you have an ambassador's badge, but you have never answered my question. Is your badge is just decoration?

I have just come to see your question. No, I do not know why.

Try to be more polite next time. It helps fellow members having a great day. We are not here to be insulted, we are here to learn and help if we want, no one should ever push anyone the way you do. It is not a right demanding answer the way you have just made it to be. We cannot see all the messages you know. This my answer to you. If you want to learn even better just be more polite because no one is being paid here to do the helping and answering every question of others. It comes from the heart.

I am not angry. I am offended by your lack of respect, not for me alone but to those who were trying to be as helpful as they could.

Let us all be like the rest of the WA community, friendly, helpful, and supportive. Let me try to find the answer but you just made me feel busy to help others.

I read your about me page on your website and you refer to your previous workplaces and about harassment. Please do not bring harassment in to the WA Community. You will find that members stop helping you very quickly if you are insulting them.

Could I also maybe suggest that you change niches from MMO to one of your own choosing, based on your passions, hobbies and interests? With the MMO niche and promoting WA, you will be referring (or as you put it “recruiting”) members to WA. But reading between the lines, you do not appear to like or trust the WA platform, members and training. I am therefore very confused as to why you would want to refer others here and to become their Coach?

I may be outline of line with this suggestion, but it might be worth a serious consideration as to where you want to focus your Affiliate Business.

I am sorry if you feel that I have offended you, but I did not expect to get an answer like yours when I was trying to solve a problem seriously. In fact, I did not know that I was given an incorrect answer from Jay, that's why this was unable to resolve no matter how many answers I received. I do believe that I am being polite to people who has helped me although I did not receive the right answer. My ability to help others are very limited, but I am trying to help others whenever I am able to as well. That is my pay back to the community, however, I owe a lot more.

How did I bring harassment into WA Community? Are you talking about Megawinner? I replied to him.

I appreciate for a number of your help. Thank you for your feed back regarding my website although I have never asked you. These posts were written back in April, so things are different now. I simply selected WA because I already have an affiliate link. Speaking frankly, whatever niche I choose is non of your business. If I follow your direction, you will be responsible, off course, you don't want to. I know what I am doing but you don't know me at all. So could I ask you that please do not go in my site? I have seen WA promoting sites with some false information but I have never bothered it.

By the way, there is an outstanding question which I have not received your answer a month ago. I put URL here, but this answer has already been resolved so you do not need to reply it to me.

If no one in this community want to help me, Kyle and Carson have to help me out, because it is included within my membership.

Thank you very much and have a wonderful day.

I have helped you on more than one occasion but if you are now requesting that I do not help you any further, that is ok with me. I wish you well, and I will unfollow you, goodbye!

Hi - I am sorry to say I have to agree with Chrystopher. You are beginning to alienate the rest of the community here, particularly with your assumption that Ambassadors are obliged to help you.

Take, for example, your insulting response to Florentino (megawinner) simply because he didn't reply to your question in the time frame you expected him to.

Myself and others have spent a lot of time trying to help you, particularly in Live Chat last night. I stand by what I said, that in the early stages of a website, the focus should be on creating as much content as possible.

As an aside, you cannot stop others from visiting your website if they wish to. Your screenshots show the name of your site quite clearly, and your questions and comments here at WA are not only visible to all the two million members here, but they can also be seen on Google, as WA is a website on the internet, just like any other, and all the content here is visible.

I am pleased to see that you have said that you know what you are doing. I wish you every success.

Yes, you have helped me a lot and I really appreciated it. However, checking my site content without my permission is too intrusive and that is NOT HELP! Did I ask you for site feed back? As an ambassador, you are in much higher position, so I felt it was a power harassment to me.
Reply
Tomoko1 Premium
Yes, you have answered a lot of my questions and I thanked you a lot. You have told me that I needed to write a lot of posts, however, I told you that I was not a writer. In Live Chat last night, you picked on me for not adding any content with Catherine and told me that forget about SEO and write contents. I felt that it was a power harassment, you want to control us as an ambassador, but you were not happy with me because I did not do what you expected me to do. I got your advise, however, it is up to me how to take it. Catherine also tried to push me to write although I told her that I wanted to learn technical skills first. No one knows about Google, but how do you know it? Sounds like you are a super lady.

To be a premium member here, I am entitled to get help from the experts and I paid for it. If I don't understand their answer, I have right to ask again and again, however, sometime they stop to reply to me. Then, I figure out the answer in other ways.

I did not mean to offend Florentino at all. His response was funny and unlike the ambassador that's why I made fun of him, not because of his reply to my question was late.

You mentioned to me that the ambassadors were not paid before. Should I feel sorry for you? However, that is non of my business. You should speak to Kyle.

Thank you for your reply.
Yes, I went to there, however, see what is going on? Website name should not be counted. I think I can fill out Mega Description here, but something wrong with Title. Is this a right place to fill Mega Title?

There is nothing wrong with that, it is supposed to be there.

I try to keep most of my meta titles short so they don't go into the red. But I still use a minimum of four words in my keyword, it's just the second bit I reduce. I hope this helps.

So is this a right place to write Meta Title?

Yes, just reduce the length of the second half and watch the color in the box change from red to yellow and white.

Really? So Jay has given us false information, right? Then, I need to contact him again.
Thank you.

ecocatherine Premium
No, you do not need to contact Jay. His information is correct. The box above the colored box is where you can type, my mistake. The colored box just counts the number of letters and spaces you type into the box above it.

Slow down when it comes to accusing people of providing wrong false information here, that goes against everything WA stands for.

WA is an amazing place and people here are trying to help you. Often when I do not understand something it is an issue with me, not the person trying to help me.

It is also important to remember that, our hard work and ability to preserve until we make things work will lead to our success. People here provide training but it is our job to do the work, explore and practice until we get it right.

I hope this helps.

Also... bear in mind that people are less likely to help people who are quick to make accusations or blame others for providing false information. Especially when they have been trying to help you.

There is a lot of information to take in here and yes, that can be overwhelming at the start. Just be patient and try your best to grasp the lessons before accusing others.

We live in a world of online scamming, WA is different. Its hard work, but it is different.

Jay has not provided wrong information. If you go to your All in One SEO Settings you will see that you have the global defaults set to %PostTitle% | %SiteTitle%

If you have created your Post Title correctly, you do not need to edit/touch/change the Meta Title

Google will only display the first 60 characters of your title on desktop searches and 40 characters on mobile searches. However, it will not penalise you if you go over 60 characters, it will simply be truncated. You do not want to remove your site title from the settings though, as this is your branding. It will show up in many other places other than search results, such as social media and bookmarks etc.

Just ensure that the first 40 characters of your title are the most captivating and engaging section, that also includes your keyword.

Yes Chrystopher is right, you can not remove that's it is not included in the part that counts our letters

I see what part of the issue is, Tomoko has created a post with the same name as the site title / domain name, which makes it look as if it is appearing twice. They would be better off renaming their post. I have taken a quick look at their website and they are a “recruiter” for WA. I am therefore under the impression that this post is their first post following the Bootcamp Training and is therefore a WA Review. It would be far better if this was renamed as a review rather than the same name as their website.

Are you talking about post title or code (or both) for the first 60?
Thank you.

What information has he given you incorrectly?

The website that your screenshot refers to here, is this your first and only website or are you building more than one?

If this is your first and only, as you only have 3 posts so far, could I suggest that you complete all 7 levels of the Bootcamp Training before you move on to supplemental training from the community, step-by-step so that you do not miss anything. You will obtain a far better understanding that way of how to build your website.

I have attached all the information including URL where he answered incorrectly in below. He answered yes to put Meta Title on copy 2 (on my screen) like copy 1 (Jay's screen).

I don't see any training regarding SEO besides level 1 from Kyle that's why I had to take this. I have build total of 4 websites. Two of them were build when I was a starter, but I deleted one of them out of frustration. And one of them has too many technical issue. My third one I build when I was a premium according to Jay's video as I was advised by one of WA member, but I figured out that it was too advanced for me. The fourth one, I build according to Kyle's instruction on Level 1. It is the best one I have for now. @magistudios
Jay, I have tried to accomplish Meta Title and Description according to your direction for the last few days. I asked the community so many times but never resolved.
My question was: Q 1. Should I put Meta Title in title box? 15 to 60 or 50 to 60 character? (Copy 2)
You answered : 1. yes 50 to 60.
Then, I filled Meta Title in the box as you told me, but see, what happened after I put Meta Title? I have given an incorrect answer., so please give me a correct one. Where I put Meta title?
Thank you.

By the way, regarding your comment, "If this is your first and only, as you only have 3 posts so far", I have only published 2 posts so far, and 1 post is under construction. Where did you find my 3rd posts?
Thank you.

I'm really struggling to see the issue here, as Jay has provided you with the answers, along with many members here. You were asking for clarification whether Jay said 15 or 50 and he confirmed this to you as 50.

As per my message above, desktop searches on Google only show the first 60 characters of your title, anything over this is ok, it just will not be displayed.

The appending of your site name on the end is normal and is controlled by your SEO plugin, as previously mentioned. The default config for your global settings is set to the following:

%post_title% | %site_title%

This can be found going into WordPress and clicking on All in One SEO -> General Settings and scroll down to Title Settings

If you do not want your Site Title being appended (highly NOT recommended, I.e. you should not touch this setting), you can remove the following:

| %site_title%

Jay has not provided incorrect advice here, he is simply stating that you can override the default setting of using your Page / Post Title. But if you have set your Page / Post Title correctly, you do not need to enter it again or to alter it in the Meta Title field.
