    So I made a new site a couple of weeks ago and did some backlinking. When the site was indexed I noticed that the sites name was appearing twice in the SERPS in the title.

    E.g. In this format:

    How to rank very well | Mysite.comMysite.com
    http://www.Mysite.com/how-to-rank-very-well
    Lorem ipsum Declorum Lorem ipsum Declorem

    From SEO point of view it is a minor error. From my point of view and visitors it looks shabby.

    I have attached an picture of my site with in the SERPS (blurred to protect niche) and the blue box shows the site name appearing twice.




    I have a few plugins installed - Wordpress SEO and SEOpressor.

    Does anyone have a solution? Or any suggestions?

    Check your site title settings.

    Seems like you're running WP, so it may also be a setting relating to the theme.

    BTW, it's not difficult to remove blurs from pictures.

    use only one plugin , and do check your theme . Sometimes themes also change the title
