Page title changed to older version in SERPS

 11:18 am on Mar 25, 2009 (gmt 0)

I changed my page title for my index page at the start of this week. As soon as I did I jumped 3 places, which is great.

I have just checked again and now I am back a the original position and the SERPS are showing my old page title AND description.

Any ideas?

Google might be showing you results from a different datacenter and that datacenter may not have the updates that you made.

does that chnage each day? i find it odd that its one day new, one day old.

first time ive noticed it

That's normal. gouri is right. It is just the different data centers that have not yet updated. Once it does, the search results will reflect your current page title. It happens every single time I change my titles.

Really happy about jumping 3 spots! must have done something right

It can take weeks for changes to stick, and they can often revert for a few days now and again even several months later.

Generally, I have noticed that only after 4-5 caches does the serp starts to get stabalize once we change a title.

its interesting how much effect changing the page title has.
