Title of site looks funny on Google (3 posts)

    Hi guys, my site title is wrong on google. It appears twice.

    http://www.insidewomanmag.com

    When you search for the site on google it looks really weird. I can see two titles + description.

    I'm not sure what to do anymore. I've searched and searched and used the various suggestion to remove it from deactivating plugins (including Yoast - Force rewrite titles) to changing the code on php.header to renaming the site via settings>general. But still it's still wrong. I've also reinstalled wordpress + theme but still nothing changes.

    Can someone please help me.

    Thank you

    You cannot use any of the above to change how your site is indexed/listed on Google - at least not immediately - review that with Google.

    A) Use Yoast to correct the SEO title tag for the site. It is currently:
    Home Inside Woman Online

    B) Shorten the site Description meta tag - it is too long 64 characters max:
    Too long:
    Inside Woman Online celebrate you Christian woman and your accomplishments; as you strive to make your life ever more beautiful and fulfilling in God

    Once done use Google Webmaster Tools to submit a proper sitemap and re-index your site.
