Searching for a three word phrase (our wordspace) I get 8,367,735 pages. Each word considered separately. Going to the "next page" Page results = 12,762 -three word phrase treated as One word <term vector>
Going back to original search, reload page = 12,762 - 3 word phrase treated as one word. Kinda funky - Good news is my ranking stays the same through both "methods" Any clue as to what is up with the funky counts/words/vectors differences?
Last month one of my secondary two word key phrases popped into the #1 position for one day, then vanished back into obscurity. Yesterday, the same keyword phrase is back at #1 and this morning it's still there. We'll see how long it stays this time.
40 pages of ours on a single site went top 3 for most of yesterday under some primo top 100 keywords - today, they are sprinkled back down on pages 3-10 (bummed). But, we pulled more out of Alta yesterday than any day in our history (that's saying alot). The only day I can compare it to was nailing #2 under pokemon on AOL last fall.
Alta is doing this rotation much faster this time than the last few weeks. I think they are intentionally hitting the bigger keywords for rotation on a faster time frame. Real Estate, Autos, and some big entertainment phrases all rotated twice this week.
