The top 10s from the Poetry sites are related to the terms on the page and not the main site.
When I go to WMT and click on search queries and sort by Avg position, a lot of my poetry pages are ranking on the first page in G (out of about 40 terms ranking on the first page about 1/2 of them are from the poetry pages). However my main website was hit by Panda as of last July (traffic is down by 1/3 what it used to be) so that's not a true measure of what it used to be. I still have several pages from main site ranking on first page but usually not my main targeted keywords.
I'm just trying to decide if these poetry pages are hurting my main site or if they are helping through having more pages/links back to the main site.
I will try to interlink the poetry pages more. So far I've only done it in the footer.
