OpenDNS Gives Different Google Search Results

I was again surprised when Jehzlau informed me that he had already beaten me on Google for Marhgil Macuha keyword. He even have a screenshot to prove it. He is not signed in on Google account.

I checked my Google results. I’m still #1. I checked the results on different Google datacenters. I’m still #1. I informed Jehzlau about it, and he insisted that he is still seeing his page as #1. How come?

Then he told me that he’s using OpenDNS as his DNS. So, I investigated. Configured my PC to use the OpenDNS . Bingo! He’s number 1! See the screen shot (click for a larger image) :

But putting back my original DNS configuration will show the original result. So, what’s this? OpenDNS has their own Google search results? Google have a different search result for people using OpenDNS? I think so. Why o why? I don’t know. Anyone wanna share his 2 cents?

So, which one are we going to use on the contest? Not everyone uses the OpenDNS, and I still don’t know why Google show different result when using them. So, we’re not going to use the OpenDNS. Let’s use the ordinary DNS that your web service provider provided you. Just make sure you are logged out of Google when checking the standings.

‘Nuff said.
