Server Log shows site is in top 30 SERPs, but I don't see it birwin
What does it mean when I view my server log and I see a referrer from the Google SERPs, but when I do the search my site does not appear. The referrer is from the top 30 SERP for my keywords.
Does Google have regional indexes that differ?
The same case as mine.
My theory is that serp from different Google data centers are different. That is, the serp where the visitor browse and came into your website is entirely different from the serp that you have viewed.
Do you have any PPC listings? You will setill get the referer string if they come in from a PPC link which isnt modified using a tracking program etc.. reseller
I have noticed the same since last Februray, especially after Bourbon update.
I guess the main reason is that the datacenters are in
everfluxin (the state of everchanging unstable serps due to continues updating process including addition of new pages, backlink update, algo update etc.). Therfore its impossible sometimes to track the exact positions of your pages on the serps within the same day or sometimes even within few hours! stinkfoot
Search results change hourly sometimes. What happened yesterday may not happen today. Its what some wombat called everflux I think. Stupid name for a stupid idea really. wanna_learn
Different Datacenters-Different Results webhound
yes, what you see in one city isn't necc. what you see in another city. depends on where the user is located. JoeHouse
Yes different data centers show occasional different results. You also have to take into effect the everflux effect.
I have literally seen keywords change from minute to minute.
The interent results have really changed over the last couple of years. There are so many websites with in some case millions of sites competing for the same keyword.
Results change quickly, everflux effect.
