This was kind of an interesting question that I had never even considered. The question is, are results ranked different based on position? I could see why someone would ask this, but it is simply not the case. Google uses a set of ranking factors for all items equally. This is actually good to know. Watch the video on this by Matt Cutt’s at Google.
