Do not use multiple title tags

Why is this important?

The title tag of the page is displayed in many different areas such as a browsers tab bar and when smart linking to a specific page. More importantly it is the link text displayed in search results. Having more than one title tag will cause search engines to choose one or the other which may not be the title that is relevant to the page. Additionally multiple title tags may be misinterpreted as an attempt to trick a search engine into adding key words that are not in your actual title.

How can I resolve this issue?

Use only one title tag for your page
