@superclown2, the trend I reported here months ago was just that fact. It was that big sites could cover the keyword in one article and would rank far and above the niche, specialty, experts who cover that topic exclusively. If it's something deeemed tech, then it's a big wide umbrella for the sites we all know about. The umbrella effect.
The one aspect of results that I see which is still very confusing is the number of foreign results. I can't say for certain if it's specific to my results or if in general other people are finding many more foreign results. I can report that yes, I'm still seeing foreign results in both image and regular search. I've never had to click "show results from" english only. Perhaps this isn't noteworthy?
