    Today I found something I found really odd for Google search results for one of my Hubs main targeted keyword. When I do a broad search it shows up as #457 out of 853K results,but when I do a phrase match search with quotes it shows up as #39 out of 5.640 million results.

    Has anyone ever seen such a discrepancy like this? First off I have never seen a phrase match return more results than broad search results on anything I've searched for. Then it makes it so much odder that I'd rank 39th out of almost 6mil,but only 457th out of so far less. I am perplexed to say the least,lol.

    I also checked Scroogle and though they don't show out of how many results the rankings were very similar.
