Is it normal to experience ranking drop after asking Google to reindex page?

    I actually experience a ranking increase yesterday. The highest I've been when its hovering around the upper mid of page 1. I know people would have been happy with that but I decided to change the seo title, played a bit using variations so it doesnt look the same with competitors. I made sure I use the targeted keywords though. I also added a bit more words in the article.

    I then asked Google to reindex the page, so the seo title would change immediately and people could see it. While it did change, my ranking has dropped badly.. like down to about 10-12 positions.

    Is this normal? And has people experience their rank come back after this?

    Yeah, it is normal. But make sure you haven't done any over optimization on your page. In general, it will come back to the original state after the reindex. No need to worry

    What do you mean by reindex though? Since it just got reindex after I submit the page to google webmaster. Do you mean the next time it got crawled again without me resubmitting the url to google?

    I mean to say when you are asking Google to recrawl and reindex your web page means the ranking fluctuate. You will not get the guarantee that Google will crawl every change that you made on your web page from the first crawling. Sometimes ranking will drop. You will get back to the original position in quick time.
