unique phrase in title cant find it even after it is indexed
if i cant a particular pages on google search which have very unique title after they get indexed any where in top 5 pages of google..... but find other pages from the same site instead but at a lower rank......
is it sign of a penalty by google?
No, this is no indication that your site is in any sort of penalty. This is especially common for newer sites. Google is actually getting away from ranking exact matching title tags. I am actually seeing good results by reversing the title tag. For example if you were targeting "free widgets", I am seeing sites that use "widgets free" rank higher for free widgets.
This is a small study that I really have not dug too much into, its just showing me that perhaps that google is looking more at the content than page title. Or perhaps they are just simply taking an additional step to stop ranking manipulations.
