@Tedster - really cant say because I happened on the forum here around this time and just implemented changes without thinking abut Panda, then thinking I am ahead of Panda, but maybe not really ahead as my domains are .com, although hosted in the EU. I don't think this is Panda specific but not sure; I know what I saw in my experience though. It's really what I always thought the algo did, just that i didnt think too much about it with regard to my pages until i got a bit obsessed with the topic ;)
In conclusion, it's all common sense, but easily overlooked. The more you look the more you find, so keep looking :)
I really cant relate this to Panda or not but I think it is a real effect. I didnt do any double-blind trial types of testing, but I have sufficient feedback from changes to be confident on this.
'Focus' would be a good term; how well focussed a match is a page, rather than just does it match.
