Google uses information about your identity/history to tailor results.
So if you have logged in to any google account then your search results
will be influenced. (Also there is geographic and other information
taking into account.) If you want a "clean" result then delete all
cookies and don't log into any accounts before you try your google search.
 
I tried both Firefox and IE here at UTS (not logged in to
anything/incognito modes) and ProgClub is the first for both
'programmers club' and ' "programmers club" '.
