Qiuck questions guys, i am really baffled about my ranking in ask.co.uk. I used optimisation skills learned here to optimised my website. The thing i find hard to comprehend, is that the keywords i expexted to do well are no were to be seen but the keywords i didn't expect much from are ranking well.

I just don't understand why my 3rd and 4th keywords are doing really well but my 1st and 2nd keywords are doing badly.

Some of the results i saw when i typed in my 1st and 2nd keywords didn't even remotely have anything to do with those keywords. Is like searching for google and getting MSN in return. If any one wants to sticky me, please feel free.

Community, hubs, authority first - keywords second. Optimization for teoma is a whole different game.

An old post by Brett. Teoma is strange. Hard to figure out. Although, I just checked and I'm #1 for every SERP I have targeted on Teoma; better than any other SE. ;) Teoma definitely can pick up clusters of related sites for specific search phrases. Which sometimes works rather well. However, Teoma comes up also with a lot of clinkers. Definitely still under development.
