Supplementals ranking ABOVE me
... what does that mean?

Okay, so, if Google can't find enough "good" results from its regular database it uses the supplemental database. Yes?

Well, out of the top ten supplemental results I was No.5 - but I wasn't listed as supplemental. How can pages that don't exist rank above me? If I was under some penalty then surely I would be supplementaled too? Or is it that the non-existent pages of a more authorative sites such as BBC are better for Google users than my page?

I suspect age of domain and/or quality/quantity of inbounds is to blame.

Supplemental pages might actually exist, as in the case of my site's recently troubled pages.

Deciphering the logic of Google's index (supp and non-supp) right now is like trying to make a sandcastle in a tsunami.
