I have something that might help you.
"google2mkr" is a UNIX shell script
translates Google's basic output structure
I did try to find out about Google's internal
which I assumed were something like the Open
categories which Google used in the early
But I was very disappointed to find that the
labels were always missing in Google search output.
If you look at Google's starting search pages
the Firefox start page, you will see that the
Open Directory categories have been replaced
cascading short menus of more focused searches.

Try a search for washington.
quickly, despite the fact that they have no semantics for
they search for.
that the first result page real estate is divided among several types of
?washington? (DC, Uni, George, state, etc.). This overrides their normal
dynamic algorithms that track what users click and elevate those pages in
ranking. Someone has modified the results to ensure a balanced cross
section of Washington samples.
I am working on trying to decipher some
of the codes to find out more about how it works.
