So, the plot thickens. I re-tested the searches I spoke about in my previous post. The search in question was the title, in quotes, of my review I posted to Yelp on 7/16 about the Kooza Cirque show in Chicago.
Two days later I did some test searches; one, for my blog post about the Kooza show, and the other about the Kooza Yelp review; something was fishy (see original conspiracy post).
Today (note that I contacted Yelp and Google), did the searches again, because Yelp contacted me. Miraculously, the rankings are as they should be. Well, what happened? See for yourself. Below are two links to the same search done two different days.
