NeverHome, didn't you hear?
Google has decided to show their SERPS upside down, to fool some webmasters. Funny eh?
It seems as if inbound links from pages of the same domain count much more than before. I have a website with a menu showing on every site pointing to some subdomains. One of the menu entries is a quiet competitive search term but the site it points to was never optimised in anyway. Not the keyword in the title, only one time on the page. Now this sundomain ranks pretty high for the anchortext used in the menu although it has zero links from other domains. The page is pretty relevant for the keyword so that is not the problem, I was just wondering how come this site beats all those highly optimized sites for this keyword.
