Re: Is Google Kidding with me ?
Yes this might happen sometimes, and even it has been noticed that in certain cases some words and unwanted elements might be added to title tags. In most cases, the age of websites and their link popularity records can be the reason. For example, if your website has been recently launched, and has not been online, say, for example a year, it still is not getting properly indexed by Google because your site needs more time to get stable crawling patterns and records over the net.
On the other hand, since new sites are in most cases not powered by the strong types of backlinks, so their indexing and crawling records may not seem that functional. Lack of contents on pages too can be among other issues. For instance, simply creating an index file and then uploading that, without publishing some useful text paragraphs on it to help people as well as search engines. Keep your site updated, add links to that and also remain patient for some time to see effects.
