    Crazy serp!

    My SERP has gone bonkers this morning. Anyone else experiencing this? Kind of hard to tell from the screengrab, but that's the first page of a search result.

    Kind of long, eh?

    We figured this out - it was only when you logged into a specific account that had their settings set to show 100 results per page.

    Re: Crazy serp!

    Sorry for all the hype. It appears that it's due to a setting in the account that specifies to display 100 results per page.

    Well, the good thing is that this could be a great tool to quickly analyze the first 10 pages of organic results.

    Cheers

    Don't quote me on this, but it seems like in the past I've noticed that rankings/results will vary when you choose to display more than the standard 10. I would just double check this before using that setting to analyze the "first 10 pages".

    Yes I remember doing some comparisons and in the past at least there were inconsistencies when you set to more search results.

    Re: Crazy serp!

    There are slight variances here and there. But most scrapers and rank trackers work off of results set to 100.

    You can actually use a couple of cool similar search settings to see some results without some local penalties - I don't have enough data of penalized local listings to determine what penalties though...
