    Any ideas on what is causing this display in the search engines?

    MisconceptionsMisco

    http://i61.tinypic.com/k30m7p.jpg

    Or for example do a search for misconception.us united nations.

    http://survivor-story.com/ is same theme with the same issue

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    So you're using Yoast for your page titles?

    Yoast's WordPress SEO plugin - yes, and thanks for the quick and accurate reply.

    I'm using it on two other sites without the same problem and

    http://survivor-story.com/

    Seems to be OK now.

    @Andrew Nevins

    I was excited and thought you were going to tell us the most likely answer to the problem.

    I do realize that you are a volunteer moderator and are simply wanting to help us.

    But when you have time, please get back to me on this.

    Thank you,

    Michael

    I thought you said you resolved this

    Seems to be OK now.

    I Googled that http://misconceptions.us/does-the-world-need-the-u-n site and saw the issue, but then I checked the actual Webpage and your site title looked like it had changed:

    <title>United Nations - Does The West Need The UN?Misconceptions</title>

    So maybe Google just has cached an old version of the Webpage when that issue once occurred but now doesn't.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear; I try to walk the fine line between being brief and being a windbag ;-)

    I meant that my second site that uses the same theme http://survivor-story.com/ seems to be OK now.

    I just checked,

    misconceptions – Does America Or The West Need The UN?

    And Google displays,

    I did clear my cache and it's not just Google.

    I am very sensitive to your situation because a good friend of mine volunteered on a Photoshop forum but had to give it up. People would post, "Where the hell were you, I've been waiting since last night ..?"
    and "Your advice didn't help me one bit so what do you know ..".

    Thanks,

    Could you use Google's Fetch as Google tool to debug this?

    1. On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the site you want.
    2. On the Dashboard, under Crawl, click Fetch as Google.
    3. In the text box, type the path to the page you want to check.
    4. In the dropdown list, select the type of fetch you want. To see what our web crawler Googlebot sees, select Web. To see what our mobile crawler for smartphones sees, select Mobile Smartphone. To see what our mobile crawler for feature phones sees, select Mobile cHTML (this is used mainly for Japanese web sites) or Mobile XHTML/WML.
    5. Click Fetch.

    Try deactivating all your plugins and activing one of the default WordPress themes, and then fetching a page with the issue using that tool.

    Hopefully that will narrow down what's responsible.

    I'd be happy to try that but the problem exists in Google, Bing, Yahoo and DuckDuckGo.

    So it would seem like the problem is not search engine related but site related.

    Am I wrong?

    Yes I am thinking it's either one of your plugins, your theme, or a combination of them that's causing the issue, and so by deactivating them and switching to the default Twenty Fourteen/ Thirteen theme we can attempt to isolate the issue (as it is considered a default installation does not have your problem).

    Unless you want to wait for Google, Bing, Yahoo or DuckDuckGo to recrawl your website to see whether deactivating all your plugins and switching themes actually resolved the issue, you can try to use one of the search engine's emulation tools.

    I will think about what would be either easiest or best ..

    Thanks
