These occurrences were pointed out in previous threads and apparently some felt it was a conspiracy and only confined to the Amazon domain. It also seems to affecting different areas drastically at different times. I donít see it clearing up that quickly as some alluded to.
Personally I see it as some type of reverse testing where youíre summing the game out to zero and reapplying the layers to see where the problems lay. Since webmasters seem to be reporting it from many areas it might logically be a bug. In other words any PhD trained in testing methodology is not going to risk that much flak possibly coming from multiple directions with a flawed method. The tricky thing with this problem is when you run Panda or Penguin you may strike at a whole new set of sites at various times because the variables are ever changing especially if youíre trying to create self-learning. I donít see it as that either. Is this the untouched core set?
Bottom line is youíre dealing in guess-o-matics and without transparency many could be re-building sites needlessly. In older days the answer was to minus the situation out of the equation. In other words fifty competitive search engines usually kept the others from going out on tangents that threatened all.
