    So i changed title and description of the site without removing the targeted keywords from them 3 days ago, but just changed words around them...

    Just today site went from top 10 to page 11....

    No penalty message in webmaster tools...

    Is it temporary thing ? Site was ranking top 10-15 for more then a year.

    Algorithm is recalculating your page factors, it will be back

    I have the same problem i added h2 tag to an inner page of my site and it went from page 2 to page 6 it's been there for more than a month. I thought it got hit with on-page over optimization, three days ago i decided to add more content to it. Do you think it will come back ?

    But google say description actually is not a ranking factor.
    So why recalculating the ranking factor due to the change of a non-ranking factor? Does this means it's a lie?

    Title is the biggest On page factor, it's huge. Moreover, I think the algorithm knows there is a change in the page, so it starts calculating ranking factors again. It can't know from the start what you did, like okay, he changed the meta description, but the title is the same, let's leave it like that. This is a human brain doing, programs can't do that.

    Just give it time, if it's been too long and rankings are still at drop, you have the option to revert back the changes and observe if rankings are back up again. Trial and error.

    Its been 3 days so far and site is still page 11 for home page, site is not penalized as i dont see any message in webmaster tools....

    inner pages still ranking top for all keywords....

    i will wait for another 3-4 days to see how it goes, maybe i will get better rankings then before , you never know.

    That is weird. DO keep us updated.

    Did you btw did any link building recently which may have been the cause?
