I was editing to try and give a better example, but thanks for reading the fine print tedster ... I think often people look at the results Google provides with a short-term, narrow view, rather than trying to figure out what their long-term sustainable plan might be, and imo you really have to have differences present for an algo to 'learn' what is 'better' or 'worse', especially on a query dependent basis.
I didn't expect my changes to propel my pages back to Google's page one. I wasn't expecting them to be demoted further, though, which is what seems to have happened, at least for yesterday. Tomorrow? Who knows?
