    Chances are another plugin or theme is adding these also. Have you tried deactivating all plugins, reverting to the 2011 theme and then testing this out?

    Thanks for your reply.

    No I have not deactivated the plugins.

    However I did read that themes (I have suffusion)
    and Yoast can create problems.

    The error messages are in Googgle webmaster

    and I guess it does take some time before they appear and then again disappear after I have made changes.

    I have read that others had problems with Yoast and duplicate titles and someone solved it by leaving

    all the titles in the Yoast SEO empty and just entering the meta description.

    I am trying this now and will see what happens.

    When I viewed the web source after removing the Yoast SEO title tag the duplicate on my front page was gone.

    I have also changed my SEO settings like this:

    Taxonomies> categories > noindex and
    Taxonomies> tags > noindex
    other > author archives > noindex
    other > date archives> noindex

    I am hoping this will make the duplicate categories and tags disappear.

    Are these settings correct?

    Did those settings work? I have had duplicate titles and descriptions and it seems like it's because of my categories. When I have a subcategory, and a page is checked for both the main and sub category, it looks like it shows up as a duplicate meta title in google webmaster tools.
