The second URL may drop significantly (say, down to page 2).
On other occasions, oddly enough, I noticed that a single domain can have
multiple separated (not nested) results. For example, I used to have my
front) page at number 1 and my blog (residing on the same domain) at
number 3. In due time, the more 'logical' (the fluffy sense of the word)
results began to appear and the SERP continously converge into a better
form. They are possibly optimised by tracking what links the user is
