In one of my niches, i often see sites come and go that auto create pages and add them to their navigation structure.
red widgets location one red widgets location two red widgets location three
blue widgets location one blue widgets location two blue widgets location three
It doesn't last long. The content is duplicate across the pages, except with the location changed so they get Google panda smacked after about 6-8 weeks.
Now... i have seen one stay in the top of its niche for at least three months, simply by not adding the pages to the navigation of the main site. All pages are orphaned so the fact they are rubbish seems to prevent them damaging the rankings of the site itself, with panda only being interested in rubbish content that is part of the navigation.
Anyone else seen this? .

I am not sure if I understand your message. Are you saying that you are seeing websites that do not diffuse their linking power rank better? That has been the case. You don't want your ROS navigation to link to every page on your site especially the weak pages.
(For newbies that don't know what we are talking about: This is the logic behind PageRank formula. A url has a certain amount of ranking power inbound to it via links, that ranking power is then divided amongst the outgoing links. The more links outgoing on page the less ranking power each link gets.)
