In our neck of the woods, the only thing I notice is that sites doing well have not made any updates to design for 12 years, and all have a left side site wide menu, on a 3 column design.
I would have thought somebody redesigning a template would have recovered at random by now
For example, red widgets, blue widgets, pink widgets etc, rather than on a red widget page, red widget places to buy, red widget info, red widget specifications, red widget sizes... etc
may be a coincidence .. the actual real content is rubbish, if it exists.
