Confusing social serps, what's going on?

 2:31 am on Jul 23, 2011 (gmt 0)

When logged in to Google I'm being told that I have referred my pages to myself, ALL of my pages, and my site shows up in spot #4 or #5 for every title, if not better, complete with my twitter icon and name.

If I log out of Google the pages return to their natural rank, which isn't horrible but not as good as when I'm logged in and getting my own recommendations.

I haven't recommended all of my pages to myself, or to anyone for that matter, in fact many of the pages haven't ever been recommended by anyone and are old with no social buttons on them... so why am I seeing this?

Is this what everyone sees? One of the top few spots in any search will be given to a site that has been referred to you somehow?

Do you mean the 'You shared this' text? I see this for all content associated with my Google account.

I think it's Buzz. In Buzz, all own sites listed, when somebody publishes a new page on his own sites, it's autoatically recommended by him.

Yes, the 'shared this' text is telling me I've shared all of my articles when I've shared none of them.

I'm just trying to figure out how Google has my twitter account linked to the site and as a friend of mine but hasn't made the link that the twitter account is mine.

The end result is that every single page I have, on any keyword, ranks #4 or #5 in serps. It's just a little annoying to have to log out to see where I really rank :-)

Also, it apparently means that twitter friends get to see your content on page one regardless of actual rank so should I be trying to friend everyone in the world right now?

I tend to use #*$! for a quick glance although that's not quite accurate either..just better.

for some reason scr00gle without the zero's was censored?
