@snowman - I am. The overnight churn must have just completed because the garbage results I mentioned in my last post (about 4 hours ago) have now moved down the page. Seeing some new black hat techniques that are ranking highly too! (keyword loading the title) it's actually funny to see what some people will try! It's flippin' hilarious to see it working, even in light of G's long list of quality updates over the past years.
Another possibly interesting observation is that if I change a page on my site, then refresh my sitemap in WMT's, it takes 4 days to pick it up. However, I just added a WP blog post and it was picked up an in the #1 spot within 30 minutes. Now I'll watch it to see if it ages out. Looks like they are big on fresh meat.
