Thanks - that's a helpful observation, especially since the variety of blogs you work with puts you in a position to notice details that many of us might not.
It seems that the "keyword in filepath" dial keeps getting turned back and forth. I can see how it would be a high-trust signal for Google, but something about the other styles of urls actually losing ground for you bothers me.
Could there be some common factor in the way those other blogs are structured, something in addition to the non-keyword style of the url?
