Stats are a funny thing. #1 out of 2.5 million at first glance is impressive. But if you google the quoted phrase "distributed rss", you'll find that google only has 957 pages (as of this moment) that contain that exact phrase. Since you're page contains that exact phrase in several places, including the title, it is quite reasonable that it has risen to the top.

I don't mean to suggest that having a number one rating on "distributed rss" is not a good thing... it is a very good thing. I only mean to suggest that Google is not so easily manipulated. Try, for example, getting a number one rating on the phrase "auto loan". In that case Google has 2,480,000 pages when you quote the phrase, and 17,500,000 when you don't.
