bramley, I do see what you do. for example, there was a page that ranked high for "blue widget" and "blue widget alternatives". Now I do see the page retaining its rank for "blue widget alternatives" while moving to page 2 for "blue widget". I noticed these for a few other pages too.
But there are a few others who compete for the same set of keywords and one such site has either retained or improved the ranks for most of those combinations.
Do you see any pattern in this?
but later I realised they were #1 for something else - which made sense when looking carefully at the page ...
Can you give a generic example on why it made sense?
ps: All my examples are observations comparing pre-panda to post-panda.
