You can add a 'Custom Page Title' in your category settings since years ago. (Note that the forum post above yours dates from 2013)

Why do you think that SEO is a VM weakness? I think it's pretty good.

marvays:
I think the VM has few rules settings. Yes, I can write everything manually. But when I have 2000 products, it is wrong. There's a lot to improve on SEO :) It's not a criticism but an idea.

Charli39:
I am also unable to change title and desc in product categories. I’ve come to the fact that the product categories inherit title and desc from the store’s home page site home page). A change on this page causes a change on all category pages without respecting individual changes in individual categories.

Turning off plugins does not give anything as well as changing the template.

You have to add or change in Meta Information the "Custom Page Title" in the product or category else the page tile is same as the product or category name

Adding the category name in front of the product name in title tag by default isn't especially good, it takes focus from the product name in search results, and if the category name is long, the total title will be too long for displaying in search results (t.ex. Google recommends 70 chars incl. spaces etc.).

Haven't seen this behaviour elsewhere in Joomla, nor other webshop solutions that I can recall. More common display is 'Product Name - Site Name', same as 'Article Title - Site Name'. If anyone for some odd reason want's to display category name also, it should better be settings for all this (SEO Settings).

Just my 5 cents a few years later ... ;)
