Blog title showing twice in Google + (4 posts)

    My website appears fine, but when I post a link onto Google Plus the title will show twice as in

    ""Marketers Beware – The “Powerball Paradox”Marketers Beware – The “Powerball Paradox”"
    for the link http://www.mrryanconnors.com/2012/12/03/marketers-beware-the-powerball-paradox/

    I assume this has to do with a duplicate title tag in the code, but I can't figure out how to fix the issue (I'm still a WordPress n00b). This doesn't happen when I share onto LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter and the post appears fine in the browser.

    Any insights would be much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    There are no dupe title tags in your code, or dupe meta or anything

    I"m not sure why Goog+ is grabbing the title twice. I'm not sure if perhaps it grabs your meta title, and then your actual post title, or what.

    Google+ has recently started doing the same thing on my site as well - I'm trying to dig into what's going on

    bump! even I have the same problem. I read in Google forums that it might be due to duplication of Facebook meta tags or something related to the yoast plugin.

    If the Google+ is picking up BOTH the meta title tag, and the og facebook title tag, that is a possibility.

    I've looked through my source, and the OP's, and didn't find any duplication within individual tags.
