Did you remove the standard title tag placed in the _layout.html file by craft?

This line is probably breaking your SEO title: <title>{% if title is defined %}{{ title }} - {% endif %}{{ siteName }}</title> This is found inside the <head> tags

If not you should navigate to SEO > Site Meta and take a look in the settings there. The only problem then is that you could only disable the site name being placed not the title. But I guess its the line of code you still have in your _layout


For anyone else in my situation who ends up here:

I had already removed the standard <title> tag from my layout.

I was trying to remove "Home - " from my Homepage title using the setting under:

SEOmatic > Global SEO > SEO Title Source

...but I couldn't understand why this had no effect on the frontend.

Eventually realised there is an individual setting for every section!

SEOmatic > Content SEO > [Section Name] > SEO Title Source

I just needed to change the Homepage section to use Custom Text and leave the box blank 👍
