Count me among those sites hit by the big brand bias. Let me see if understand this: for the past ten years, the big brands have been alive and well, but not coming up in the top spot for all the searches they're getting now. Did Google have it wrong all those years by offering the best match for the query? I doubt it. If I didn't know better, it almost smells of collusion between the big brands and Google. Must be nice being a big brand these days. Traffic has to be through the roof!
