... surely google results are now getting out of hand?

i've just done a search - a three word term

and the top 11 results are all from the same domain (my default is 100 results per page) - is this some kind of record?

I think I once counted 14.

I find myself using the minus sign in search queries almost every day now to block the "multiple results on same domain" junk that turns up in the serps.

Will the MROSD nonsense ever be resolved?

They show different results for 100-result view than for 10-result view. I checked it several times.

one more new twist to further scramble any manual or auto analysis.

thanks for the heads-up.

Nothing new. A search term I regularly use to test has Amazon accounting for 20+ results in the first three pages.

Same domain is bad enough. I've done searches where the first three results are all the same page-- by amazing coincidence, Amazon. Just different versions of the same book.

There's a thread somewhere hereabouts concerning the equally unpredictable - sign. Even if it works as intended, it may not, uh, work as intended. Search for "widgets -foobar" and you've excluded all the pages that helpfully say "widgets often come up in the popular phrase 'foobar widgets'. But I'm here to talk about widgets in their own right".

If there's a prize for winning sign me up... One of mine shows for top 40+ for a three word term, and 70+ for four...

My record is also 14, but I also had only 5 domains fill up up 7 pages of results, its just getting ridiculous. Every sane google searcher wants as many different options as possible, not one domain fill up 50% of the first 10 pages.

All of this kinda suggests that they need to put some more work into "sitelinks". If you're getting 85 different results from the same site, isn't that exactly when you should consolidate them all into one package with a wad of sitelinks to cover all options? Result: a big fat #1 result that fills half the screen ... but it will be followed by nine entirely different results.
