Malcolm Coles provided screen shots of examples of how brand name with query type of searches are resulting in the search results being dominated by a single domain.

One example he provided was a search for [apple help], but that is one of many examples:

Others are seeing this as well. WebmasterWorldhas their own thread on a related topic. There is a Sphinn thread on Malcolm's post.

Is this a bug? Is this a new Google feature? Is this the most relevant/diverse set of results that Google says they want to provide?

I think they dominated the single domain because they've been doing great SEO.. I don't know if i'm right but that's my idea behind it..

Rank a single domain in so many results on a single page is good. I tried other well known site it seems like not pretty good like apple on top. I think that they are doing a great SEO as Foreclosures was said before.
