After yesterday's story about google favoring Yahoo links, I got word from Sergey Brin from google. He says that the reason that the site tested showed so poorly is that a robots.txt file prevented Google's crawler from fully indexing the site. The robots.txt file has since disappeared, and the next index should show a change in the rankings.
