When you redesign your sites and regain your positions, you can thank Google if you think it's appropriate. I think you're getting a little ahead of the game thanking them for making work for you before you know the outcome.
I wasn't thanking Google. I was thanking an ex-employee at Google for sharing her insights.
I never designed for an algo, I designed for people. That's still Google's official advice, it simply my not be true anymore.
In the competitive categories, there are often millions of search returns for a single search term. Good content alone usually isn't enough to get you in the top ten spots.
