Last result on first page = first result on second page

Is this new?

I've stumbled on a query where the last result on the first page is the EXACT same result as the first one on the second page.

The result has authorship details and seems to have been boosted as a result.

Only three normal serps show on the front page. It's dominated by local results. The second page also includes two local results.

Find it quite peculiar that the exact same page effectively ranks in third and fourth spot.

That's something I've seen off and on for years. I think it's a pagination bug that slips into Google's code once in a while - especially in a test situation (which this SERP sounds like to me.)

Me too. I had never bothered to investigate.

If it's a pagination bug, these very forums suffer from the same one ;) Look at any multi-page thread. Then again, it may be intentional.

Hehe, when I saw it I did think maybe Google's getting ideas from WebmasterWorld :)
