    Hi there,

    This week, I realized that Google modified Titles Tag of some of my websites.
    So, for example I had something like "My Keyword.com - Know everything about this keyword !" as a Title, now it's just "Keyword".

    It's happened for 3 of my websites, and all 3 were already #1 for their main keyword. I searched about that, and I read articles saying Google changed it automatically sometimes for some reasons. Things is my CTR is really fucked up now with theses titles and I'm loosing a lot of visitors even if I'm still #1.

    Any idea on how I can bring my old Titles back ?

    If you are using wordpress, install "all in one seo" plugin. You can modified title, descriptions and you will see the preview using this plugin as well.

    I use Yoast Wordpress SEO. Actually all Titltes and Descriptions were written with that.
    In the source code my titles are still the same, it's just the way Google display them. And CTR decrease a lot.

    Valkurm,

    You can try marking up your content in order to create rich snippets for Google. Sometimes this helps them identify content that is to be included in SERPs. Keep in mind that they can choose what to put in SERPs regardless of whether you give them data to do so or not.
    Here you can learn more about rich snippets,

    And here you can learn more about Microdata markup which is what Google recommends but there are other methods as well,

    Hope that helps,
