That site has PageRank of 2 and I have a hard time understanding what it
contains. I don't know any Danish->English page conversions. I remember that
as a deficiency among translation tools, which has been raised before in
this newsgroup. What do you know about this site which we are missing? Is it
run by a friend of yours? It is said to have been first seen in February
2002, so PageRank 2 could indicate slow growth, unless the URL alone was
parked in the interim.

I am not sure that indexing of search results, which can be done by linking
to a query execution, is the same as the situation that involves indexing
the indices or pulling indices from a local search tool. Have you tried
searching for links 'backward' to see how/why this pages get indexed?

Best wishes,
