Google Search Results Can Be ... Weird

For kicks, I checked the behind-the-scenes stats for the blog this morning.
In particular, I checked the "Traffic sources" for the last "day".
One of the Google-searches that brought someone to this blog was "cyclotouring georgia".
I entered that into a Google-search just to see what would happen.
Third result listed by Google:

Google picked up on "Cyclo-Touring".
Apparently completely ignored "georgia".

Somehow, I think there is a flaw in the algorithms that ignore the location.
Because cyclo-touring is probably similar to real estate.
It is all about three things:  location, location and location.
