Inconsistent Search Results for Compound Word RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi All,

    I'm the webmaster for Thai Style my website is showing inconsistent results for my keywords.

    My main keywords include:
    "Thai Style" No.1http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=thai+style&go=Search&form=QBRE
    "+Thaistyle" No.3 http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=%2Bthaistyle&go=Search&form=QBRE
    "Thaistyle" No.4 http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=thaistyle&go=Search&form=QBRE

    I don't understand why the last keyword "Thaistyle" ranks No. 4 in the SERP (this search term is a compound word and contains results from both queries "Thai Style" and "+Thaistyle") however it ranks lower than in either of the 2 queries that are combined to produce the SERP.

    Any insight into what is causing this phenomenon would be appreciated. In the meantime I will just keep working on getting more quality links and hopefully the problem will solve itself.
