    I was ranking on page two for a pretty competitive keyword and decided to optimize my title tag with a catchy title that included my keyword and brand. I also changed the description. A few other onsite things were added during the time like social signals and header for contact info. I re-indexed the entire site and saw my rank from page 2 to page 4. Was it a mistake to change the title? it wasnt optimized at all and yosat likes it now.

    About four days ago the site started to drop slowing for its main keyword around the same time social signals networks were added to the page. and contact info was added to the header. however the header and networks were somewhat broken and not optimized. two days ago i optimized the title page for the main keyword and change the description. We reindexed yesterday and we saw ranks drop off from a few relevant keywords which was expected because i optimized the title for the main keyword but the main one also dropped a lot. it hasnt changed since.

    was it the broken networks, bad header, or the title that caused the drop.


    Ok. Thank you guys.
