• ---- Is OOP a myth? Or just not applied to authority sites?

The old -950 OOP has been a rare beast since Caffeine, when a more nuanced approach became possible

The way I imagine the current scoring environment is this:

1) The main algo gives positive scores based on "normal" criteria.
2) The Panda module gives a negative score based on textual analysis
3) The Penguin module gives a negative score based on off-page (though possibly on-site) SEO.

The things that get picked up in 2+3 are unavoidably contributing to the positive score in the main algo. In order to negate this advantage, the relative importance of the negative scoring is turned way up. No need for OOP.

In order to account for why some sites appear unaffected, you have to do some funky things with maths. Here are some that might work

A,B,C = the "dial" on each score
x,y,z = unmodified score for main algo, Panda and Penguin

Ax + By + Cz = Doc Score

1)
B= k(y-x)

2)Same but more extreme
B= k(y-x)^p

3)
IF (x/y < n) THEN B=0

4)
B= k(y/x)

*********************************

The above is over-simplified conceptual stuff, not definite analysis. Frankly, apart from it's use as a conceptual tool, it's total rubbish. Enjoy.
