Froogle listing shows in regular Google results - Universal Search?
Accompanying a tanking in rankings

On July 13 my rankings took a big dive (after briefly coming back strong for a month or so).

Here's what I'm seeing now for keyphrases based on my product Titles:

1) I have to include an unusual amount of extra words in my search terms to enable my site appear

2) When it does appear it is listed the same a my Froogle listing -- i.e., not my regular title but the title used in my Froogle upload

3) The search result does not include "Cached" it only has "Similar Pages."

4) Lower PR sites and off-topic sites are ahead of me in SERPs.

Has anyone else noticed this?

spina45 - Sounds like it might possibly have to do with the retooling Google is doing for its announced Universal Search....

Google Universal Search - news in the middle of the SERPS and more

Is Universal Search making my traffic fall day after day?

Mod note: I'm going to take the liberty of adding "Universal Search?" to the tail end of this thread's title.
