All you can do is keep playing 'spot the difference' in your niche and decide whether to act upon it or not.
And therein lies the problem.
One site I have has been targeted for the UK retail market for 11 years and suddenly 2 months ago it went to #1 for a keyword term I had considered buying, strange I thought, let's see what happens. Anyway after 2 months no extra traffic whatsoever and today it dropped to #5, #3 and #4 are fine, #1 and #2, even though associated to the trade, neither of them sell this specific product and the traffic levels still have not changed!
Conclusion, the machine sure as heck hasn't a clue what it's doing therefore it's most unlikely anyone could declare with confidence they know the answer 100%...I have to admit I thought I did, I'll just say 90+% for now :-)
