Influencing Digkey Search Results?

A project log for An Unfortunate SMD Project

If you like happy, easy to build projects, this is not for you. This project is only for people who like to be miserable and frustrated.

An Unfortunate SMD Challenge Participant Reported:
On DigiKey, when I was searching for the 754-2022-1-ND (the 0201 LED), I
noticed that in the "you might be interested in" results from DigiKey,
they listed:

    BAT-HLD-001 - Linx Technologies Inc. | BAT-HLD-001-ND DigiKey
    Electronics
    BAT-HLD-001
    Linx Technologies Inc.
    HOLDER BATTERY 20MM COIN
    Unit Price 0.28000
    BAT-HLD-001-ND

    ATTINY85V-10SUR - Microchip Technology | ATTINY85V-10SURCT-ND
    DigiKey Electronics
    ATTINY85V-10SUR
    Microchip Technology
    IC MCU 8BIT 8KB FLASH 8SOIC
    Unit Price 1.25000
    ATTINY85V-10SURCT-ND

So it would seem that the SMD Challenge orders have affected the DigiKey
search results...  though, who else would be ordering 0201 LEDs, right?
LOL
