I was doing some random definition type searches (i.e. What is...) and I saw the following results:

12.07.2012-16.38 - tvanslooten's library


12.07.2012-16.39 - tvanslooten's library


12.07.2012-16.39 - tvanslooten's library


I wonder how the heck you get that #1 position? Google is highlighting "definitions" from regular websites. Usually the websites they highlight are from Wikipedia and other scholarly-type websites. These are coming from regular websites. I'd like to figure out how to get one of those listing:) It looks like you just have to have a terminology/glossary page. Interesting...

Nice catch Travis. That is really interesting. I've never seen that before.

I did a search for "What is local seo" as well and got the same result.

If you click on the "More Info" or "Source" I just get this:[h=1]Oops! Google Chrome could not find mobicastmarketing.com[/h]

The other ones work. Man, how do you get a website up there?? Probably worth some good research.

Exactly. It's a race to see who can figure it out first...lol. That definition placement gets some serious real estate. When you crack the code I trust you'll share it with us;)
