I am now getting about 3 times as much traffic for this particular keyword from Google over the last few days even though it holds the same position in the SERPS. I have had this position for over a month.I have checked several times each day to verify the position. What explains this rise in traffic. It is not because more people are all of a sudden searching for this.

It could be people migrating from Yahoo. Yahoo's new results are horrific.

Does Google use the same search for everyone or do people get slightly different results based on the data centre used? Perhaps I am ranking across all data centres as opposed to a few and therefore more people are finding my site through this particular keyword.

What? Like Google's aren't?

In Texas, we call that "hitting the nail on the head".

I guess it does depend on the data centre used.

Just today I did a search on one of my keywords across twelve Google data centres. Whilst my site ranked first position across eleven of those data centres, the same keyword didn't even get me into the top 100 on one particular data centre.

crick, good for you. I am envious. But, believe me, it's pot luck. Try not to dig into any hidden meaning or relevance. The Google algo is screwed up. I have no idea what all those thousands of MIT graduates do over there - tied themselves up in a huge mathemetical knot? Just don't take your position for granted, it may well disappear next month.
