Not to diminish Bill Slawski in any way, but that was kind of obvious ..from the beginning..
G serps, Randomise for a while, only the guilty, in Google's eyes ( those using SEO ) would zig..randomise again, they ( the SEOs ) will zag..repeat, repeat, watch for site changes, "continuous zig zagging" = SEO trying to manipulate..
And randomness cows the rest..which is good for G, keeps it being perceived to "be moving in mysterious ways"..:)
People ripping out pages every time G sneezes, screams SEO..and in G's eyes, SEO means spam..<= Usually correctly IMO ;)
Which is yet again why , if it isn't broken, don't try to fix it..and don't depend on just the one site..
Those who would be called blackhats..have different strategies..
re the patent..I am amazed that they could get a patent on this I would have thought that the workings of organised religion and the writings of Machiavelli would have been "prior art" :)..Jesuitical influence again at G ;-)
