From a SEO challenged perspective. What we are continuing to see on one of our sites at about position 6 in the U.S. but at 1 or 2 in other places, for example Canada and the U.K.
I can only fathom that G is thinking (well if the algo can really think) is that the site is of less relevance in the U.S. contrasted with Canada and the U.K. Thus a government controlled site, wikipedia, old U.S. state dept docs from 3 years ago etc. ride to the top.
The funny thing is that most of our business AND organic traffic comes from the U.S. then the U.K. and Canada - thus for this site G has it upside down - at least in our view.
