Just to give the skeptic point-of-view, the SERP's would not be so volatile
if the checks are made small time intervals apart. From the phrasing by the
OP I imagine that he tries it everything merely in real-time, repeating the
search again and again. 5 Minutes on the same machine should not make that
much of a different, should they? (this is really a question, I am not
sure) Allocation to a datacentre should perhaps be predictable, unless of
course the load on each datacentre changes very sharply (a spike). I search
Google quite often and rarely do I notice a difference over a short periods
of time.

Again, I think you are right, but I have my skepticism.
