I've seen a significant drop in a certain phrase I was attempting to get #1 (I was almost there!) with and have just noticed something...
Before this update the top 10 sites had titles that included the keyword/phrase I was chasing however now the top 8 or so have more general titles. They such have titles that start with their company name or just have their company name. None of them include the phrase which they rank so well for.
The annoying thing is that some of the sites aren't as relevant as they should be and some of them are just terrible compared to my site which has better quality of content and layout.
Just can't figure out what has gone on here. My site was climbing with, what I thought, just quality content, use of titles, and general on-page SEO but it suddenly it has took a big drop.
Anyone notice the change in titles for top ranking websites or is it just happened in the area I'm looking at?
