"double title" in google search results

hi there,

I've got a problem with the google search result of my new website :-/. the title of my website appears twice one after the other, not once as usual. in the browserwindow it appears once.

do you have an idea?

thank you so much...

Re: "double title" in google search results

Hey @cowi!  You're seeing that because of how we generate the title of a page.  We make a page's title based by combining site title and page title, separated by a dash.  It looks like you entered the same thing in Settings for your site title that you entered for the title of your home page on the pages tab.

 

If you go to the Pages tab, click on your home page then SEO Settings, remove the SEO title text and re-publish, it'll resolve this for you once Google updates its search index of your site.

If you made changes to your site it can still take a while for Google to update its search index. That should happen automatically given enough time, though.
