Okay, so, if Google can't find enough "good" results from its regular database it uses the supplemental database. Yes?

Well, out of the top ten supplemental results I was No.5 - but I wasn't listed as supplemental. How can pages that don't exist rank above me? If I was under some penalty then surely I would be supplementaled too? Or is it that the non-existent pages of a more authorative sites such as BBC are better for Google users than my page?

I suspect age of domain and/or quality/quantity of inbounds is to blame.

Supplemental pages might actually exist, as in the case of my site's recently troubled pages.

Deciphering the logic of Google's index (supp and non-supp) right now is like trying to make a sandcastle in a tsunami.
