Thanks Tedster....well, this is the thing which convinces me why employing user metrics as a Panda and ranking mechanism is such a brilliant solution for Google. ANYTHING can be great today and terrible tomorrow. It all depends on millions of constantly changing factors.
If we add a new product which is similar to one we already have, the stats of the existing one can plummet, or the new one can struggle if the existing one is a better choice. If a competitor undercuts us it affects our stats. If a new competitor arrives or improves in ranking, it affects our stats. Anything that we or other webmasters do, combined with everything that is going on in the world, can negatively or positively impact our stats. We can rise and fall without changing a thing, because everything around us is changing.
