Best case scenario for Ask/Teoma from an algo point of view is to identify your area (more specific the better), then chase highly related terms - though this does not always mean a direct competitor, lateral relatedness can work also.
A site can get downgraded because of the quality of the site; hence - its content, structure, linking partners (dodgy one's), etc. Teoma has strong spam filtering, and does occasionally adjust the levels, and certainly at the moment - according to some at AJ, they are trying to get the DB of site's as big as Google's, and this may lead them to twist the filters and the algo weightings over the next few months. So there may still be a bumpy ride ahead for some.
