Just had the weekly report in for one of my sites that's struggling against branded terms (no Penguin or Panda smacking)- we've lost another 10 keywords in the last 7 days to somewhere below page 5, due to mass host crowding of the main brand. Not sure how to combat this, as we're authorised resellers of said brand, so the terms are pretty damn relevant to the site.
More interestingly, the so called 'brand terms' are getting more generic.
Previously 'ACME Widget AW1234' SERPs was crowded out by the brand, now the search term 'AW1234' is also crowded out.
Boy, do I love my job at the moment!
