    Are you using Yoast SEO?

    if you do go to Yoast Seo -> Titles and Metas -> Archives and disable the indexing for the archives .

    Or create a sitemap of your website and choose the pages you want to be indexed.

    I want it to appear once, but not multiple times, is it possible ?
    i see many things in the section which 1 needs to be disabled out of below ?
    Author archives
    Meta Robots
    Date-based archives
    will it effect my SEO negatively ?

    Why would you want lesser results in the SERPs?

    Also, it is obvious from the highlights in the screenshot that you are searching for your own domain name. In such cases, the domain WILL appear more than once.

    Edit - I misread your original post.

    You have problem with the plugin you are using probably Yoast, and there is the title shown twice. Remove title from it or from your title description etc.

    Looks like a misconfiguration of Yoast!

    PM me your login info, I'll take a look.

    I misunderstood your question . You were referring to website name , pretty sure it's a configuration error in Yoast .
