    Okay, so this morning my serp title in G changed from

    keyword phrase #1 | keyword phrase # 2 to

    part of keyword phrase 1

    I have not made any updates to my site and can not figure out why this would have happened? Any ideas?

    Hm... that's strange.

    Are you using WordPress on your site?

    Main site is static html and I do have a blog as well as a newly installed forum on a sub domain. However, only the title on the main index page has changed.

    The only thing I can think of is moving it from shared to a vps with private name servers (ns1.mysite.com / ns2.mysite.com), but not sure why this would affect the title of the page since I have done this before and had no negative effects.

    same thing happened to me, then it slipped from #1 spot down to #3 and back to regular title it should have been... odd.
