You can in principle 'buy' good position by getting listed in Yahoo
directories and purchasing links from related (in the outrageous cases even
unrelated) businesses. It's no secret that good positions can cost money,
especially for 'commercial' SERP's where big sums of money are involved,
e.g. lawyers, hosts, IT consultants, Music shops, books and so forth. On
the contrary, you also have SERP's that will not attract people whose
wallet is out on the desk, adjacent to the mouse pad.
If you say what SERP's you keep your eyes on, the group will be able to
explain how or why these 3 competitors get listed at the top. There are
tools for checking that quickly and providing you with an answer. Some
people here also have plenty of experience; unfortunately I am not among
them. *frown* [PING BILL]
