    I have a 2 weeks old website. When I created it, it had title like this:
    "abc" and it was indexed by Google.
    Later, I changed the title to "abcd" and it was indexed too with the new title.
    One week ago, I checked the ranking of this website and see the old title appear on serp ("abc")
    After that, I created one more post, google indexed in 5 minutes and I checked my website's title on serp, it was "abcd"
    Today, after 2 weeks, I've checked the ranking of this website again and the title now is "abc"
    So, who can explain this symptom?
    Thanks

    Noted the same issue since a couple of weeks with a client's site, but as they had a virus injection on their server which caused a temporary blocking of the site on Google, I thought it was related to this particulare issue.

    After cleaning it all up and getting the blocking removed, the search in question moved from 3 to 1. Then the cache changed and it went down to 9.

    Saw some other changes in the SERPs for sites I control without mayor actions from my side and think they are "working on something".

    There is definitely something going on. My site and another site of my friends in a completely different niche have gone back a few days in cache age. This has happened before to me too.

    The last time, it took me 10 days to see things back to normal. Just keep your fingers crossed, there is a good chance that you will come out on a positive note, with possibly higher rankings after whatever is going on is finished.

    I did it, but the difference was very slight.

    I think there is some problem with Google's storage. They don't have enough space to store new info. Could be the affect of caffeine. :D

    I don't think there is any chance of this. Have you seen the amount of cash that they have??? Google running out of storage space is like Budweiser running out of beer. :)

    I just checked and I am seeing the cached version on one of my client's sites. I too am going to watch this.

    I just guessed. However, who knows. Maybe they are not 100% ready for the new caffeine. I heard Cutts said the new system will need tons of storage.

    Maybe their HDD orders haven't come yet, lol

    Come on guys, could anyone explain this? Can it be a new type of penalty or just Google's problem?
    ------------
    Update, the old cache appears again. This symptom happens to all the website in my host. Who has same problem?
    Can anyone explain this? Greywolf, MisterGeremi....?

    Just another update, my sites showed up at page 6 2 days ago with the old cache. Yesterday moved to page 3 with the new cache and today, dropped to page 7 with the old cache.
    What's the problem with google?
