Anyone else noticed this? Any ideas what would cause this?
BTW - we got killed with Florida (#15 of 10 million results before - and gone after).
e.g; N search through a 24 hour period will yield Y different results.
To visually see how things varies over a given time period, check out this backlink graph I made:
Google's API is a method of accessing its database that programmers and developers can use. The results sent back are a datastream that can be parsed by a program instead of a web page for a human reader.
This is known as a web service. Amazon also offers something like this...so a programmer can get access to the data and then create a dynamic webpage.
Hope that helps.
Is a querry through the Google API to be compared with a querry on google.com from the US or with a querry from the country the person at?
If you are outside the US but the API is doing querries within the US then you would have different results.
Which tool are you using to use the API?
From what I understand, any regionalisation of the API results that you see would be caused by the location of the server that runs the query (assuming that you, like me, are using a web based tool).
SEOCount's server is based in New York I believe....
It would be really helpful to check rankings in the different regions of the world which seems to be impossible unless you have a local office in each region.

As for the Florida, it seems to have hit a lot of people BADLY.
