@backdraft7 - Most definitely a daily change. I probably should have said that its changed on my end, today...
Maybe there are several indexes we are working to and from, in order to keep us guessing! (I think I read that here before also!)
It looks like back links with targeted anchor text will get you to the top... so some "link building" SEO low life's are using that to it's advantage.
Hasn't that been the case for 10+ years? The only people Google are scaring away with the backlink FUD are the ones trying to play by Matt Cutts' rules. Everyone else is still building links, buying links, spamming the index with links, flying under the radar and ranking well. They often outrank me too!
