No. Yesterday I was a "sir", the day before a "duke", and tomorrow .... tomorrow I plan to be a "prince".

Seriously though, do you mean changing the title of one page in your site per day? How many pages does your site have? Why do you want to change a title every day?

I've often wondered if G would get annoyed with me, because I do have a habit of changing titles constantly. So far I'm not aware of being penalised for it. (But I shall be more wary in future.)

However I should say that pages that I change are usually heavily linked to and I'm fairly sure that changes in the title aren't going to change the position in the SERPs.

I'm always changing the title to my home page, for example. That page appears in most of my target keyword searches despite never having had my target keywords in the title. Google seems to have figured out what my site is about and now couldn't care less what I put in the title. That is fine with me.

I think there are legitimate reasons for rapidly changing titles aren't there? Like rapidly changing, or updated content? Blogs come to mind.

i was just toying with some new ideas to spead accoss my sites, a home page or any other for that matter can often have content change on a daily basis, this brings engines back often to regulary update pages, thus making it a site of interest.
Now lets say my site was about widgets, but i sold new, used, second hand ones, guess what my site is about!.
i was thinking on a daily basis changing content on a round 7 day cycle together with a very slight tweak on the title and maybe the descrion tag. it was only a suggestion as i have a site pr2 the home page showed random widget for sale on every impression g came back every 2 days which by my reckoning is not normal unless the site is a pr4 or above, now i have changed the site g comnes back once a week, hence the idea of constant conent change, im going to try it, nothing to loose as this other doesnt get traffic

Sure, you can change the title daily if you want your site to rank for stuff you had on it week(s) ago...

Seriously unless you're a news site,... there's no point.

Even if Google takes note of the new title within a day ( it just happened on one of my sites, same-day indexing, caching, listing, whatnot ) it won't rank the page for the newly added words until the next overall relevance calculation, which takes at least 4 days. But as it doesn't occur every day, it's more like a week.

So again, apart of an obvious red flag, and ranking for stuff you don't have anymore, I don't see what could happen.

Of course.
Change title each day is bad.

Do not do it.

Before several weeks i change title, to make it more conform with contents site, that cause to decrease index page a little but it come crowning after several days.

I think the batter don't do it.
