After Panda it seems that most of this site's Google traffic is for the "core" subjects (the one's you would, at first thought, expect to find on this site). It's like Google has decided what topics I have a right to be be an authority on.
There's a sharp observation, I'd say. If we want "the right" to be an authority on something else, we need to work very hard to demonstrate that these days.
Something about this is being coded into the algorithm, maybe explicitly but definitely implicitly. There will be no high rankings given on the happenstance of some text matching, which is what we used to see and also learned to leverage.
