Partial Indexing In Google

The difference being that it sounds like you're doing it on a much larger scale, so the effect is much more noticeable.
Shane: There were a handful or so posts a couple of weeks back when some of us started to see the partially indexed pages. Meaning those pages which had been in the index for a long time, but now didn't show any snippet.
At first glance it appeared to be affecting dynamic sites. On closer inspection is was affecting static sites too. It was just easier to notice with dynamic sites becuase they tend to be larger by their very nature.
No clue what's up with that. I have some sites that are affected and others that have similar backend coding that are completely unaffected. I'm in wait and see mode also.

Earlier this year, I had some difficulty with Google over a similar problem. A client with a 150 page dynamic site was updating and optimising their site and decided, for all the right reasons, to change their primary tld from a .com to a .co.uk.
The web designer decided to park the domains instead of doing the recommended 301 redirect from the .com to the .co.uk. This resulted in a delay of about 2 months while Google sorted out whether this was duplicate content (20% of the pages were not changed) and then sorted out which was the primary domain.
Eventually, it all settled down. Although, last time I checked, some of the old pages were still lurking in Google's index, some 6 months after the updated site was launched.
So my guess is that changing the page names may well deliver similar delays for your site. As Randy noted, Google will effectively treat them as new pages.
