so tedster, your hunch is that the objective is not to water down the serps, but rather to enhance them because the backlink profile isn't smelling quite right?
outland 88, with your politically correct comment, you are thinking, like i was, that google is intentionally "spreading the wealth around" even if the serp relevamcy suffers some?
try this one: with 75% market share, google has to start thinking like a big company - the last thing they need is a bunch of little widget companies crying to their local congressman that google has ruined their business - next thing you know there are anti-trust hearings (ask bill gates about how fun these were for him...) and the google cash machine could get muzzled. so some of the corporate guys paid a visit down the hall at the plex to the search quality guys and said "make sure everybody gets some of the pie". the result is some deserving sites get governed so that the distribution is more "equitable".
