I was amazed today to discover the following:

I have a site with an industry renown keyword in the domain name, let's call it widgets.com
The widgets business was closed down, and the website index page changed abt 1 year ago to a short text about the domain name being for sale, plus just a few industry keywords and links thrown in on that short page.

My amazement is because with keyword "widgets" the site widgets.com came up high in serps, with the old description from the time the widgets business was still active. Cache shows "domain4sale" page and is dated 6 march 05. Following "related", you get to see widgets.com listed again, but this time with description "domain4sale".

With keyword "domain4sale", the site widgets.com came up high in serps, with the description "domain4sale", cache dated 6 march 05 shows "domain4sale". Following "related", you get to see widgets.com listed again, but this time with the old description from the time the widgets business was still active.

What do we learn from this?
Clearly there are 2 descriptions floating around in Google indexes for the same site (and same cache!) and forming the basis for keyword trigger into serps.

We all understand what "matter" is, then the scientists boggled our minds with "anti-matter".
So here's a new concept: there is "duplicate content" and "unduplicate content".
