it is possible that is the average rank when your site does show up in search results
? It would never have occurred to me that it could mean anything else.
Now, if someone could figure out what they mean by the occasional "average position 1.0" which is manifest nonsense, since it implies that your page is either #1 or it doesn't show up at all. And --necessary disclaimer since this is my site I'm looking at-- these aren't searches so arcane, they only bring up one result ;)
