    I discovered that one of my sites is rank 8# in google.... nothing of strange here.... but
    My site has this title:

    keywordUseless | the_real_keyword

    google rank 8 for keywordUseless that has nothing to do with my site :) its only the title of the site.

    results for "keywordUseless" - About 7,240,000 results
    results for keywordUseless without quotes About 473,000,000 results
    intitle inurl over 500,000

    but the_real_keyword its not ranked well LOL

    Very strange..... I get traffic for it but ITS STRANGE!!

    It seems that google reads from left to right and it has first read your useless keyword and you got at #8 for it. Title is read in this sequence.

    Nothing strange going on here, it's easy to rank for fairly useless keywords, and your real keyword will presumably be harder to rank and is nowhere.
