Default My Title Tags Are Appearing Different In Google

My title tags are appearing different in Google from the original what I have coded in the title tag.

Look for the keyword - Pact contract system

This has been happening for years. Google doesn't always show what's in your title tag as the title in the search results. They can (and will) change the title to something they think is "better" (according to some criteria only Google knows for sure), based on the query the searcher input.

Due to personalization of search results, it's also possible that other searchers are seeing a different title than the one you see (which also may or may not be the same as the title tag you coded).

Same thing with the snippet. They will sometimes show (at least part of) what's in your META description, while at other times they will pull the snippet from the text on the page, and at other times it seems to be a combo of the two.

Basically, Google treats anything in your code as a suggestion more than an absolute. Their SERPs, their choice.

The best you can do is make your title as snappy as you can (i.e. not just a string of keywords), keep it as relevant to the most popular (and most-desired) search queries you're targeting with that page, and cross your fingers.

Google owns Google search engine...funny statement..right?
But it doesn't, Google has the authority to show anything in the search results.

@Torka is absolutely right! Google started setting Meta Titles for the websites when it is not presented or the web spiders may think that the title in your website doesn't match to the search query. So it took the meta title from your website with your brand name.

You might want to rethink and optimize your page once more. Make sure that the title reflects the theme of the page.

It is clear that your website is not crawled by Google.

If your title tags are appearing different, I have not heard something like you saying. You can suggest with your website developer, If yahoo is showing the same title as you mentioned in the coding then it should not happen. Has your website developer made some mistake in coding or what? You can ask to him regarding the same.

No one here know Google's strategies, how the pick the title and meta from your title and meta tags. As Torka said make your title most relative to the user search in Google. Avoid keyword stuffing.
