That is an interesting observation. By adding words, one would imagine
that options will be narrowed down. Then again, bear in mind that without
allintext you might be broadening the number of pages as you add keywords.
It is not an accurate science and the way indices get arranged in Google
is rather opaque.
Are you trying to find out which 'territory' you should target? If you
compose a page about what the aforementioned text implies, be sure to sub-
mit it to:
Just in case it is /not/ there already.
I agree that your last example is indeed an oddity. Could this have any-
thing to do with the recent updates? I doubt it personally.
