---- Casualty of Penguin - Diversity (vs a privileged club of few)

The overwhelming result from all that searching was that the same group of top ranking sites could be counted on the fingers of one hand. It was the same group of authority (aka big brand) sites in almost every single search.
In my niche every search Shows the same 3 brands + Amazon + ebay in a different order. Annoying is that this sites show up even if the pages is not related to the search. So if MC says there is no bias to big brands then there must be some very big errors in the algo. Prior to Panda/penguin i did not see unrelated sites on first page. This all went into a fuzzy state with penguin/panda.
