    Google will occasionally pick its own value to show for the title (or vary what is actually set as the title). We had it happen here at one point.

    Since I don't see the word "forums" in your titles, it seems like Google's own internal choice.

    thank you mike ..
    format for title before change indexed by google like this
    thread title | board title - forums
    after applying change
    thread title - forums
    i want only
    thread title
    without board title or forums
    i guess should i make another change to removes forums !!!

    Since "forums" isn't in the title of your threads, it's not likely to be something you have direct control over.
