There have been lots of discussions in the past about Google ranking the "wrong" page for a query.
I wonder if the new Verbatim Search [webmasterworld.com] gives any clues as to why Google might rank the wrong page.
I have a number of searches where, in my opinion, the wrong page is returned from my site. I have just tried most of them using the verbatim search and in all cases the "right" page is displayed.
I am now fairly certain (I suspected it before) that the reason the wrong page appears in the regular search is because of one of the two reasons below :
•including synonyms of your search terms (matching “car” when you search [automotive])
•finding results that match similar terms to those in your query (finding results related to “floral delivery” when you search [flower shops])
Anyone else seen similar results ?
And if so what to do now to get the right page ranking ?
