This is a position in the center of St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut, in Upper Austria.

AFAIK the 1st place (name) depends on the search result in the web and in this case there are a lot of results from Dietelbach in Germany.

So I make the suggestion to limit the search to queried country.

Hi

The default value for places without any hits in the search engine was too high, I have changed this, but "St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut" is still not on top, 'Au' has more hits in the search engine.

Cheers

Marc
