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.
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....
As for the Florida, it seems to have hit a lot of people BADLY.
....and an equal amount GOODLY :o)
