I could be wrong, but I think it had something to do with the WP plugins that generate the XML sitemap.

Here's why:

1. We've had Google XML Sitemaps plugin for WP for quite some time.
2. I decided to change our WP theme and installed Yoast SEO plugin as well.
3. After I installed it, WP alerted me that there's some conflict between Google XML Sitemaps plugin and
Yoast plugin, since both of them generate an XML sitemap.
4. I disabled Google XML Sitemaps and let Yoast handle the XML sitemap.
5. That's when we noticed our Ecwid product title SEO dropped entirely.
6. I ended up disabling Yoast and enabling Google XML Sitemaps.
7. A few days later, everything went back to normal.
