I need some answers or spin doctoring….
The site that I do work for has held #1 for a majority of the KWs we target for about 1 year now. As of last night we hold #1 still for 80% but now #2 for about 20%. Not complaining. But a couple of #2 positions are being held by a site I believe has no business being there. I need some theories because I will be asked.
My Site has nearly 2,000 incoming links. www.nobusinessbeingthere.com site has 10 incoming links.
I’m wondering if Google looks at the community that revolves around certain KWs and looks at the average of the back links for the community… lets say the average is 300 – so if one site goes out and gets 2,000 incoming links *is this a red flag for Google? * Meaning is it out of character for the community? And if yes, (out of character) Google does not award lots of weight to these extra links.
A chance at the top
I think Google gives some sites a chance at the top… I believe that is what has happened here. *Do you think this is a valid observation?*
These results won’t stick
When ever I see results that I just sense are wrong I always advise my client that these results will not stick. A good example of that is the not so distant proliferation of Amazon and results getting into the top 10. I was right within a month they were gone out of the top 10. *Would this be a fair take of the current results?*

I too am seeing a few new results.

Yep, lots of new pages from a brand new site which has only been spidered by Googlebot for the first time last week. I was beggining to get worried, Google seemed quite stale recently. These results seem to have gone live now and are not just on DC, even better!

You have to many results!
Is it possible for Google to look at a site and determine they are to dominant with the result being a determination like – “Site A is the best site, but Site A holds 20 #1 positions for other popular KWs, thus we will knock them out of #1 for 5 of their targeted KWs and give some other site a shoot at the top”
Far fetched? Is being to good a bad thing?... if the site is doing this well then there must be an evil SEO behind it! We must taper their results!
Just a thought…

On one of my sites the serps raised HUGE yesterday.

I am getting more results on -dc than on other datacentres, but the additional results are actually snippets for old versions of pages and each are marked as supplemental result.
For example, a search term that brings 40 entries on most datacentres, has 48 results on -dc, the extra 8 all marked as supplemental result and all are not reflecting what is actually on the web page right now. Google has indexed the new content of those 8 pages though, as a search for the new version of the bit of information that changed between the old and new version does find those pages listed normally in the search results for the new piece of information.
Note also that directory-dc is updated like directory-ex was on Sunday.

on one of my search terms there are 1/4 of the results showing on DC and my site has dropped from #1 to oblivion for it's main kw combination, still doing fine on all secondary kw combo's.
I'm also seeing www, www1 and www2 displaying the serps from dc.

Of course no sooner do I say this and only www2 & 3 are showing the DC serps.

I am fairly certain that the all-in-anchor is turned up very high on GV right now

I'm not seeing any significant changes.

The new pages that showed up on Thursday have now spread to all datacenters, things seem to happen real quick these days.
