These datacentres seem to be volatile at times. For one given search term,
there may be times where anomalies are spotted and I suppose this is why
you raised the question.
Enter your site and see if the numbers are consistent. Although figures
correspond to pages, it will give you insight into other data that's bound
to your domain.
