Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Is it less links from other countries that could make this drop in search c ?
I have both singelword and 2 word phrases on my site, but in the title I have 2 word phrase only.
Meta tags is with 1 and 2 word phrases.
If your competitors ranks have barely changed it's fairer to say that could be the case.
Were the word changes you made to your site essential/beneficial in any other way? It may be worth reverting to your older copy.

I'm not good at doing changes every time Google are doing some changes to their algo. I have done changes once within last 5 years, and that was because of -950 for a singel page.
The Serp change I discovered this time was for longer time than ever (approx 3 month ? for this spesific page.)Rest of the pages was, and are still, ranking very well for all important singelword and phrases. Probably because it's not an English language site with a lot of competition.
Now that it's back I think I will stay with my simple basics.
I'm still visiting WebmasterWorld to learn something, but it's very litle of it I implement as there is noe need for it so far.
