Hot Steps Up Result Shuffling

It seems as though Hotbot's result shuffling is getting worse. Almost everytime I search for the same phrase I get different results, sometimes I'm on the 1st page sometime I'm no where to be found. Sometimes 1 ODP match sometimes 6 odp matches, sometime no ODP matches.

This is making a real pain when reporting clients positions to them.

It is making it difficult to keep track of my own sites, let alone clients. What in the world are they thinking of? You can't even do a search and be assured that when you click the second page of results that they aren't going to switch.

I've been out of the loop for the past couple of weeks -- life gets in the way of watching Hotbot sometimes -- but did I miss something? It seems HB has dropped the ODP listings for me. ODP had taken up the first 20 spots and I languished just under them -- but now they are not there and I am breathing.
