Double page names

  • My site danielsfontaine.com is on the twenty eleven theme.

    I recently changed my blog title from Inside the mind ( which I didn’t like ) but when I was creating it I felt I had to put something.

    While chatting with someone on G+ the said just make it your url name if you are looking to brand yourself. So I did.

    Today I Site:danielsfontaine.com to see how things are doing with google and noticed all my links have the url in the page name twice.

    I have looked around and not being a code guy can’t figure where it is originating from. For Plug ins I use

    Word Press SEO
    Google Webmaster tools
    Askimet
    Adsense Made Easy
    Google XML sitemaps
    Jetpack
    Sharebar
    Simple FB connect
    WP touch

    I did search here and google before posting and didn’t find anything that was an
    ” a ha! ” moment so I figure I would ask. Any feedback or thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Dan

  • Can anyone point me in the right direction on this? I spent a few hours today trying to determine why this is happening to now avail. Any thoughts or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The <title> tags for all your posts/pages look similar to this:

    <title>G+ | danielsfontaine.comdanielsfontaine.com</title>

    Twenty Eleven already tries to add a relevant title tag. The WordPress SEO plugin is probably then adding the duplicate part. For a quick test, you could disable that plugin and see if it clears it up. If the plugin is the culprit, try poking at any of its relevant settings.

    Thanks Bagel. I did deactivate and it removed the doubles.

    I still haven’t found in WordPress SEO where to modify but at least I know it is in there somewhere.

    I really appreciated the advice and reply.

    Thank you!

    I have look around and can’t find where in WordPress SEO to deactivate this setting. Anyone else using WordPress SEO know where I can disable it?

    It’s a bug in the Twenty Eleven/WordPress SEO combination.

    Per Yoast:

    The issue is that the title tag in Twenty Eleven is absolutely horrible in the way it’s implemented. I’m currently working with several core contributors on a patch to entirely change the way WordPress handles titles, so all of this would no longer be needed, at least for up to date themes.

    thank you for the reply. I don’t want to disable it so I will deal with the double page titles for now.

    I was just having this issue earlier today running the WordPress SEO plugin with the Twenty Eleven theme. What took care of it for me was changing the long, bloated default <title> tag in header.php to simply be <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>
