For a recently optimized site I see some strange results in Pure Inktomi search [188.8.131.52 ]. The site targets three 2-word phrases which are all in the homepage title. (All have their own section deeper down of course).
For my second keyphrase the index page shows up at #4, showing the new title which includes keyphrase #1, 2 and 3.
For the third phrase the index page shows up at #12, showing the same title with phrases 1, 2 and 3. Same page, simply www.thissite.com.
For the main keyphrase it finally shows up at #62! Same page, but showing the old title which doesn't have any of the key phrases.
