Does anyone know why Google shows my title twice in search results? And it's the wrong title too.

Here's a screenshot:

See the following related question: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/14415/… The difference between that question and this one is that the domain (not necessarily brand) is being displayed twice. Also, the text in the source code was in another language (Danish). – dan Sep 18 '14 at 23:15

It seems Google wasn't able to create a title from the Danish inside your title tag, so used the contents of your H1 tag, which matches the title that Google displayed instead.

(Note that the contents of the H1 tag were edited out of this answer - see version number 1 of this answer for more details.)

You might consider supplying a title in English when submitting to google.com, and developing multilingual versions of your site if you haven't already.

Google can careate danish titles normally, there are thousands of website got their titles in danish without any problem. – Ami_85 Sep 5 '13 at 11:32
In google.com or google.dk? You do have a title tag (in Danish), so it should have used that if it could, but seems to have used the next available content above instead. – dan Sep 5 '13 at 15:28
