    I changed my title tags about a week ago, but google/yahoo/bing hasn't updated them in the serps.. I'm getting around 100 spider visits a day, is this normal?

    They show correctly in a browser.

    yeah that's normal.. I changed mine about 8 days ago - some search terms show the new title where others show the old title, for the same page!

    It just takes a few weeks to fully update your entire site.

    you can use cache:site to check when they updated your title/desc last time

    Thanks I can see that now, annoying though as its updated for minor keywords but not my main one. Theres no way to force an update is there? I would have thought title tags would be fairly high up on the spider lists.

    I've never seen any correlation between anything I do and the speed at which they change in results. It can be quick or take some days. About the only thing you can do is worry yourself to death about it until it happens. My eldest site seems to update faster but I don't have enough data to really suggest anything concrete.
