Google Search Idiosyncrasy?

Bud Tierney

I'll search some engine,truck/etc company name and get a bunch of hits...
If there's one like 19teens-20s Power wagon (trucking magazine) or Cycle & Automobile Trade journal, or a reference book on googlebooks I'll often see other things on those hits that I want to go back and check later...
But when I re-search my original search name, maybe a couple days later, or weeks, I don't always get the same hits!!!
It happens often enough I carefully note my search name, so I know I'm not searching a subtly different name...
Is this normal with Google???

Welcome to GOOGLE.
In my eyes it is the biggest tracker and space hog every built.

Results change as the number of hits per web page change.
I can't imagine the types of searches you do looking for obscure engine data are exactly the hot spots of the internet but that is one reason your results will vary.
I know I have searched using very specific queries and have wound up with very different results too so....... :confused:
