No wonder I am having difficulty trying to rank well for certian keywords that I have found.

For the last month I have been tracking my poor placement for the following KW phrase:

2005 KW1

an "allintitle" search on Google advised that there was only 74 active competitors, and only 692 in allintitle.

This month, Google tells me that I have been wasting my time because there are now 13,500 "allintitle" active competitors and 1,740 allintitle sites.

How come the numbers are now so high (surely there hasn't been 13,426 new pages with these KWs during the last month)?

And why is the allintitle figure lower than the "allintitle" figure?

Can we believe everything that we see?

I think we must assume all these special searches are "broken" intentionally by Google because they could all be summed up with the allinSEO search. This also applies to the link: command, although the site: command still seems to be working properly.

How is it broke?

What does google tell you that it does that it is not doing?

'Tis not broke, thats what the quotes were supposed to signify. If a search parameter is only (or vastly) used by SEO types, then it's results should be taken with a grain of salt. That's all I meant to infer.

Powdork,

I was actually intending the question for reddevil.

I want to know where everyone gets all these assumptions about how the allin commands "work"

oops.
This forum needs more icons.
There is none for 'oops'. Other forums have lots more and allow for better communication of the feelings associated with the written word. Of course, when i have paid something for the bandwidth associated with my use, i can complain more about it. :~[
