Hi, just a quick update on this.
One of our clients rang today whos keywords are effected, he was over the moon that these two competitive keywords hit first page. It was hard to explain to him that they were not really there.
The thing is, I see different results within a 3 mile radius, and he is something like 20 miles from us, so how is it he is seeing the same phony rankings as my work, yet at home I am seeing normal results? He is quite savvy when it comes to clearing cache, etc, he knows how it all works with personalization, so I would say that he isn't seeing any personal results, at least, not voluntarily, and that he is seeing the exact same as us at work.
I work at home on clients websites too so if it has something to do with IP range hitting a website then surely I should be seeing the same results at home than I do at work? Also, my home is actually closer to him than my work is.
The only difference is that I work in the main town center and my home is more on the outskirts. I dont know if that makes a difference or not, but am throwing it in for good measure.
Could it be ISP related? Its a long shot but it has got me thinking, I am with Virgin Media at home and we are with BT at work.
