Ok, see if you can understand this...

site:www.domain.com returns 1760 results

site:www.domain.com -wronw returns 1760 results

site:www.domain.com -pqwrn returns 1760 results

site:www.domain.com -nhyui returns 1760 results

site:www.domain.com -wttry returns 1760 results

site:www.domain.com -asdfg returns 2250 results

site:www.domain.com -qwerty returns 2550 results

site:www.domain.com -yuiop returns 2020 results

site:www.domain.com -mnbvc returns 1840 results

If the random word that I use is a string of five consecutive letters on the keyboard (left to right or right to left) then I get more results returned. If it's not a string of consecutive letters then I get the same number of results as if I don't specify 'minus random word'. I haven't managed to find an example that doesn't fulfil this rule yet.

Does this work for anyone else?

*bump*

Topic was one from the bottom of the page when it eventually got approved. :)

I have seen the same with:

site:www.domain.com +two word keyphrase1 returns 904 results

site:www.domain.com +two word keyphrase2 returns 860 results

Both keyphrase1 and keyphrase2 are placed on all pages throughout the website right next to each other so logic would say they should return the same results.

John_Caius, I think you have too much time on your hands. :-)

Well it's because we were working on actually what you get from the different terms:

site:www.domain.com
site:www.domain.com -randomword
site:www.domain.com wordthatsoneverypage

But yes, perhaps I have too much time on my hands...waiting for Yahoo Slurp to crawl my site properly ***hint hint Yahoo people*** ;)

You dropped it in the wrong forum;).
My guess is that this is part of the fix Google put in to stop people (Scroogle)using nonsense words when they put out their nonsense serps during Florida.

Are these results the same hour-to-hour day-to-day or did you try this once? I've found that the number of results changes constantly. I've reloaded result pages a second apart and had different numbers. I personally use allinurl:. I think it's more important to stick with one method and use it consistently, not find that one that gives you a higher number at a given time.
