    Post Help! Lost first page changing meta & Title

    So I was ranking for the term "game desire" or "gamedesire" on my domain: http://gamedesire.co and I had the Title: GameDesire Arcade | Play Online Flash Games and meta desc: From hardcore and casual online flash games, we have it all. Stop by and chill!
    It did good and got into the first page, topping anywhere between 4-6th.

    I then wanted it to be more unique, so I changed it to: GameDesire Arcade | Earn Money Playing Online Games and meta: Play hundreds of fun online flash games. Action, Casino, Board, Puzzle, Strategy.

    After one day, the site isnt to be found even in the top 8 pages of "gamedesire" search. But is indexed by google itself.

    So what should I do?
    A. Give it more time
    B. Change it back

    btw, I already went ahead and panicked and changed it back, but I just want to confirm I did the right thing.

    What you did was dilute your title tag. You made it too long and took the emphasis off the keyword phrase of "Game Desire".

    But really, who cares about the phrase "Game Desire"?
    When I'm searching for flash games, I don't type in "Game desire". I type in "Flash games" or "Awesome free flash games" or "Flash games I can waste hours on naked in my living room".

    Well not really, but you get my point: WHY is it you want to rank for "Game Desire" and not for something people actually SEARCH for?
