Could you tell me how come whenever I post to social media, or use bit.ly to share posts, I always get my title in the share two times?
Here’s a picture of what I’m talking about attached.

Your title is:
<title>SEO Cognition | SEO | Search | Marketing Home - SEO Cognition | SEO | Search | Marketing</title>
If you’re using a seo tool you might want to change the default title structure. Open up header.php and replace:
<title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | <?php is_home() ? bloginfo('description') : wp_title(''); ?></title>
<title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>December 12, 2012 at 5:18 pm #100229
Thank you. That’s partially fixed it. However, whenever I go to use bit.ly, or other sharing tools, it still displays like the screenshot I’ve attached.
I’m not sure why this is doing this…December 13, 2012 at 7:25 am #100230
Not sure why this happens. I checked your title and meta tags and all contain the right text string which is: “Reasons Why SEO Campaigns Fail – SEO Cognition | SEO | Search | Marketing”. Also the share buttons above the “About the author field” showed me the correct page title.February 17, 2013 at 2:02 pm #100231
I followed this advice.
<title><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?> | <?php is_home() ? bloginfo(‘description’) : wp_title(”); ?></title>
<title><?php wp_title(”); ?></title> (also a general advice on a wordpress plug in support forum although the text to be replaced seems theme specific).
I am using Yoast.
It still does not work.
The title tags are repeated and seem to be drawing from two sources (one I write in the yoast plug in and one from somewhere else).
The best example is the contact page
The second Indonesia Private . … . . . . . . . . should not be there.
Basically I need to only display what is written in the Yoast SEO title box.
By the way it has nothing to do with the rewrite Yoast option and nor am I using another SEO plug in.

By the way – the home page is interesting. It displays non of the text that I have written in the SEO title box.February 17, 2013 at 9:12 pm #100233
Solved it. Strange this has been a problem for weeks and then after writing to you I crack it.February 18, 2013 at 6:26 am #100234February 18, 2013 at 6:29 am #100235
A new issue has arisen now.
It is all fine EXCEPT the home pages (English and Indonesian). IF you look the titles are not working and they are certainly not what I wrote in the SEO dashboard.
Any advice?February 18, 2013 at 4:41 pm #100236
If I remember correctly, you have to actually set the home page title in yoast SEO. I don’t know if its on the home page (page) or in the plugin set up but when you change that bit in the header.php, wordpress doesn’t know what to do for a page title so it has to rely on Yoast.
