Yup. Only two or three cases over about 20 sites but it made us do a double take and a manual check of WPG reports

You still dont use wpg do you, a lot of sites do this kind of thing...luckily not too many, notice how all 3 pages are from different directories!

<<You still don't use WPG do you>>
Just curious here, why would you say that? I still use it for certain things, although not all. Is there a particular part that you were thinking of when you said this?

I stopped using it, i believe it doesnt give true results if compared with searches done manually and a lot of the advice they give i think is misleading!

That wasn't my post about WPG.
I've made great doorway pages with it,
agree their advice isn't too good.

The reason you might not be getting the same results with WPG and manual checking.. Not sure but i think i read somewhere that your browser displays results differently to a program like
WPG.. not too sure about this though.
Seth - i've seen this before.. is that not just a way to increase your links..

I had that position checking problem with WPG, so I went and got (i.e. whined at our technical director 'til he got) Submit Wolf. And got the same problem.

Altavista's clustering algo usually does a pretty good job condensing all the listings for 1 site together. Normally when you do see multiple listings, it's with things like mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com.
I don't think this is a case of them trying to increase their links, infact I kinda doubt this is the result of anything they did on purpose. I was just hoping to find more examples, so I could find out why this was happening and if AV was treating these different subfolders with different themes.
