I was talking specifically about news which are delivered massively for the
course of a few days only. As an example, many people must have searched
for 'olympic bid' between July 1st and the 6th. The SERP trends can

Google site maps allow you to be added to significant SERP's with actuality
very quickly. I don't think they are of much interest to you, Bill. Neither
will they assist my site, which does not expand in a single direction.
