    Besides the obvious...why does this happen?
    If you go to Google & type in "failure" why does that particular page come up?

    As far as I could see, "failure" was not a strong keywood and din't see it any where ont he page.
    Looked at links, that also didn't seem to be overly laced with "failure", yet maybe I just not seeing it.

    There were 228 million results & that page is #1. I want whom ever made that happen to work on my sites. I need the boost!

    It was one of the "google bombs" that went around some time back. Thousands of people linked to the site, using the word "failure" as the text. I haven't kept up with google's response as far as using it for SEO, but I was aware when several derogatory phrases were used to bring up Dubya for laughs.

    It's also how the "gurus" discovered that the text used in the links to you means a great deal to the SE

    This is google's way of eliminating frivolous results. Ignore the text of the document - only backlinks matter! As you can see it works like a charm.
