I searched "Welcome to WebmasterWorld Please read the rules" and WebmasterWorld is ranking almost 8 of the top search results. How is this even possible to be ranking this many times on the same domain?

The variety of topics at WW, and the interest in each, is pretty large and varied. :)

Uh-oh, goodroi, I think you may have over-widgetized :)

If you search for anything that is particularly associated with a single domain, the search engines don't have much choice. Try searching for {name associated with well-known site} or {name associated with other well-known site} or for that matter {name associated with little-known site with a distinctive name} and look at how many ways the search engine finds to show you the identical site or group of sites over and over again.

@grega123 ... sometimes restating the obvious is the best way!

Welcome to Webmasterworld! May your backlinks grow strong and many! :)

Branded traffic. That's all there is to it.

Oh if only that were true:-)

lucy24 gave the answer, I often see my sites appear like this since I am the only one with a specific widget query.

I feel like lucy24 basically just described branded traffic. Sure it's not always the case, but I think it is in OPs case.

This happens quite often and should be expected behavior.

When the serps show something ELSE is when we should get concerned!

Is this a quoted search or an unquoted search?

Branded traffic more likely on unquoted, as branded search often in effect is viewed by Google as a site: search.

If it's long tail enough, or simply long and specific enough, then search engines, as lucy24 says, simply have no choice.
