looking at this as a tipping factor in my case that invokes the Panda rerank
I like the phrase "tipping factor" - and if indeed this is a Panda-related re-ranking, that's probably a very accurate way to conceive of it.
I also think that a 3-5 day cycle (currently) is much more likely than the kind of extended periods that many are thinking of. If you have any more related observations, please keep us updated. And it would be good to hear from anyone else who finds their rankings to be in a sensitive "edge case" situation right now.
