The home page for blogcritics.org immediately confused my eye. Then trying to find good articles to read also confused me. When I finally went to an article page, there was a lot of cross-category (un-siloed) linking. I assume those links are there to drive PR and spidering through the site, because they certainly weren't helping this human being.
So I'm wondering if Google is running some kind of automated eye-tracker or heatmap simulation on pages.
I'm going to check through others on this "surprising losers list" to see how my own attention works. I'm in my 16th year of developing websites and I have a pretty good personal radar for good and bad eye tracking on pages.
