    My site was #2 in Google for a pretty competitive keyword, but I wasn't quite getting the clickthroughs/conversions I should, so I changed the title tag. Conversions went up, but then the page dropped, and has now disappeared

    Is there a link?

    Quite possibly if you haven't changed anything. <title> always has and probably always will be a major factor in ranking. The dip might be temporary and you might come back strong... or you might not.

    I should clarify, I actually changed the meta description, not the title tag

    Depends - right now we are in Europe
    From what I've heard and noticed the description is more to grab attention and less for ranking - I could be wrong though.
