Recently I've stopped to track rankings of my keywords of a pandalized site on Google SERPs, because after months of doing so, I couldn't get any conclusion about what they favor and dislike.
Today, I did a search, like a regular Google user, for a widget + company and the first result was about the widget with no single mention of the company on that webpage! The second result was what I wanted. Went to Bing and got what I wanted on #1. A couple of hours later, tried to find on Google something about Widget XY1 specs. I haven't found exactly what I looked for in the first 4 results, and the 5th result was about an X1 Car (no widget mentioned on the page), not about the X1 Widget. Why to hell they think I want to see a page about a car when I look for a widget. Went to Bing again and bingo on the #1.
I have a question for you guys still monitoring your keywords. Is there any logic in SERPs? Should you all just quit tracking positions and keywords and their SERP updates?
