Whatever data google thinks they understand they are missing the boat. Just because there aren't a lot of clicks doesn't mean it isn't relevant. The difference is now getting so extreme instead of typing: campbells chicken noodle soup we now must type soup. Ten months ago I'd have found ten good pages on that item, now I may find a city named Campbell that has a place serving noodle soup, a guy name campbells that wrote a page on chickens and five foreign sites trying to sell me generic super terrific knockoffs of said soup. Ironically the adsense ads will all be grocery related.
There are product searches I'm doing right now where none of the top ten results are even products. Literally zero. I know for a fact there are dozens of high ranking sites that have his exact item on their sites but they aren't being returned. Bing lists products. Phrase matching gone bad.
Google Homer, bringing you bad results faster than ever, 50% faster than other leading brands.
