How can a site (let's call it www.sitename.ch) be ranking better on google.com (including www2 and www3) than on google.ch? I thought they all used the same index and algo, but even if they didn't the opposite would make more sense. Or am I completely wrong?
In fact, the site positions are exactly the same for all google.com and google.de. Only google.ch is different.

The Zurich data center is online, but I haven't seen any of Google's domains resolve to it yet. Nonetheless, I think it's likely a problem of different indexes at different data centers.

I don't think it has to do with a data centre.
We obtain very different results on google.co.jp to google.com This can also have to do with the language and modules loaded by the person doing the search.
