How to remove Archives from Page Titles in WordPress

by | Oct 10, 2022

When searching online for your business’s website, you might notice that the title of some pages contains the word “Archives.”

This happens because WordPress refers to collections of special posts as “Archives”, so SEO software, such as Yoast, adds the word “Archives” to their title.

To prevent Yoast from adding “Archives” to the page title of Category pages, go to Yoast SEO, then Search Appearance, then Taxonomies.

Under SEO Title, there is a text box with a list of terms, one of these terms is Archives.

Click inside the text box and remove the Archives word from the box.

Scroll down a little and click the Save Changes button.
