Not as far as I know. My *guess* would be they're doing it to draw attention to their Title in the SERPs. But maybe they just the like the way it looks?

Yes, I agree with Mona. It may be the "decoration" only. I haven't come across any topics regarding "::" so far.

The '::' is used as a scope resolution operator in C++ programming. Typing something like "myclass::myfunction();" lets the compiler know you want the version of 'myfunction' defined in 'myclass' rather than from the default namespace.
Whenever I see this "mydomain::mypage" naming convention for web pages, I think "geek"...

I use them if I need to track titles in serps - give you something unique to search on :)

i am guilty of using them in titles, also as seperators such as ...
i never considered the seo perspective, i don't think there is any significance at all.

in google, we found undocumented "touching words" operators I thing.
search in google: in:the
and see only: in the (Seperated by space)
and same result with: in::the
and with: "." ":" "/" "\" "'" "=" "@" operators
also I try only : search in google and found nothing. (just put : in searchbar and press search button)
or try other combinations "::" ".::" "::." "."

I saw this in a recent Google search and the top ranking site had this in the title with only 3 repeats of the keyword on their page/code and no spam in the tags either. I'm hoping that wasn't the reason for ranking so highly but sure was strange.
