I recently designed my site. Anyways, on my most popular page I somehow
managed to make a typo on the title. I just caught this mistake yesterday
when I suddenly noticed that I was not getting any hits from Yahoo or Google
on this page. Well, to my horror, I have gone from #4 on Yahoo and #8 on
Google on this page to #80 something on Yahoo and not even in the top 100 on
Google. Is there anyway to get Yahoo and Google to spider this page sooner
than later, so that they have my proper page title indexed? Any help would
be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Something like popular.html to popular-something-else.html?
If it's just a typo in the title causing the drop then at least it
should be back to normal soon. If you renamed the page then it might
take longer. You could point some external links at the page in the hope
that it will be spidered faster.
