Allinanchor: all that matters?
allinanchor & SERP correspondence

During the past few weeks, I noticed in non-English searches that there is almost a one-to-one correspondence between the Allinanchor: position and the actual SERP position for the top 10 results. I thought that since the G search engine is actually an English engine, it may be failing to weigh other factors (semantics, syntax, etc.). And even though I noticed a similar trend in English searches, it was not the case for every search string.

Today, I checked a couple of random, general keywords for allinanchor: - actual SERP position correspondence.

For example: < keyword1 >

Position (allinanchor) Position (actual SERP)
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5
6 6
7 8 (pos#7 occupied by a gov site not among top ten in allinanchor: results)
8 9
9 10

Take another example: < keyword2 >
Top 8 positions have a 1:1 correspondence.

< keyword3 >
Top 8 positions have a 1:1 correspondence.
One can easily replicate/multiply this observation.

Is the sheer number of text links and anchor text the most important factor, or the allinanchor: query returns results by using some kind of algorithm?

<Sorry, no specific keywords.

I note that Google does not list an allinanchor: special operator, or an inanchor: either.

I wonder if Google may not support it at all. That would certainly explain the strong correspondence.
