Yoast SEO Homepage Title Tag Tutorial

By default the Yoast SEO plugin outputs the same homepage title tag format as the Twenty Fourteen theme, the reason for this is under the Yoast options page “SEO” >> “Titles & Metas” : under “Home” tab the default homepage settings are.

%%sitename%% %%page%% %%sep%% %%sitedesc%%

<title>SEO Gold</title>

and for homepage archive pages

<title>SEO Gold Page 2</title>
