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
