The post by Danny....

About the H=1 to signify a hard coded result, to me that seems false. Is this fact or his speculation?

Almost every search (no matter the term) I did I found many sites with the h=1 in the query, and some of them were spammy sites. Certainly not something that would bt hard-coded into a search.

>Is this fact or his speculation?

I looked at some of the stuff and it seemed to fall in line. I also looked at other stuff that looked like rubbish and was unsure.

Actually, looking further, I found some that had H=2.

yeah. how it was said was that H1 = best then H2 and then H0 = regular or whatever.
