IF this is true, it's such BS. If I'm trying to rank for the term "homes" and I have the most useful directory of homes for sale, I have every right to change my Title to rank above the pure garbage Google currently ranks up top, and without penalty. If I have a legitimate homes site or listing/directory that is constantly updated full of new home listings, I should have every right to make whatever changes and as many changes to WHATEVER parts of my site I want, in order to rank above the @#$% Google is currently ranking. Why in the world would a home insurance company, two definition sites, and a city-specific (not my city) blog about interior home design show up on the first SERP page for a search for "homes".
Also, I'm using "homes" as a generic term because "widgets" is pretty played out.
