Proven performing pages are going to do well while new pages, or pages with little usage history, will struggle at least for a while until they gain some history.
i think you are saying the opposite of what Bill had actually explained in the comments to that question. Usage stats of the nature explained in the patent (freq. of visits and unique visitors) will help newer pages on newer topics to compete on a level footing with the established sites.
