On the search engine results page (serp), on Alta, the 4th position, sure seems to be downright suspect. Anyone else see something funny about #4 on their searches. It just seems to me...

what were you searching on? I pulled a few searches and at first I thought I saw something but it didn't hold up.

On about 50% of the searches I am seeing something questionable in #4. Another 25% is suspect and the other 25% look ok. Just general searches little (umm, 'alot' of them to tell the truth).

I have seen something very funny. Just search for

computer games
golf clubs

#4 positions are really amazed me. But why always #4 ??

>what are the keywords you are searchin on

umm, ah, the top 10,000.

I think #4 is the 'micky' in the mix. Usually they rotate the bad one, but it looks like it is stuck on #4.

Just wondering, why AV has those "micky" sneak in top 10 and then rotate it? Will that encourge bad ones out of the theme getting to the top 10 by chance somehow? Also, many #4 positions are just bunch of links only with no contents - is AV in the transition of doing something out of line? Still scratching my head!

kinda hard for me to test right now. There is a bad or broken net connection between me and av. slow and sluggish. I'm looking at stuff I raided earlier in the week.
