Adam, how does your competition fare, and how do the top ten in each compare? Do you see any pattern there?
| 3:01 pm on Sep 22, 2003 (gmt 0)|
its fairly mixed - hard to determine a pattern
Will post up again if i find anything

Do you also enter 'widget deutschland' on google.de? If not, that might make a difference.

One thing to consider:
I open 3 browsers simultaneously, Opera, Netscape, IE, connect to G.de, key in the same search term - get three different serps.

heini, can you give us an (non committing) example? I get the same results with IE/Opera.

Sinner_G: am putting widgetS ... into both
heini: why should the browser differences be relevant? I am using just IE to check these. Very strange.
My experience is primarily with gg.com and .co.uk.
On .co.uk, usually "UK sites only" is a direct subsection of the main web results, whilst the default search is identicle to .com

Most of the time I get the same set too, but not always. The point is: It's getting increasingly difficult to tell what the *true* serps are.
A little experiment is to just change the interface language settings. In a string:
you just change the hl=de part to hl=en.

So are your browsers all the same language? I have IE in German, but Opera in English.

Whatever your browser language is set to, you can easily manipulate the value of that param by manually changing it in the string displayed in the url field.

Could Google possibly alter your results by ip?

Language isn't effecting the SERP's I'm looking at.
