Google Alerts?

I have google alerts set up to send me alerts for several things in which I have an interest. Not unusual.

Odd thing is that I get "alerts" about pages with search terms that are old. This happens every so often for a rootsweb page that contains old (2002) posts I made about an ancestor. I'm not certain why I'm getting these "old" pages as "new hits" unless something else about the page is updated.

Of course the "hits" I get are always for things I submitted in the first place.

Google Pulls Up Ancestry.com Search

This was discovered totally by accident--which is how most things are discovered.

A search on google just now for "bernard geissler" brought up numerous hits, including search results on Ancestry.com-the 6th result on the image shown in this post.

This is the first time I have noticed Ancestry.com search results coming up on a Google search. Has anyone else noticed this?
