For many sites, the index page seems to be buried on search terms for which logic determines they should rank highly. Is this a transient feature, like some of the other recent issues, resulting from the changeover to newer data? Or is it due to a more fundamental algorithmic change?
E.g. if I have been recently searching for "Car Sales", and then later search for "BMW", will the results be tailored to sites with information or selling bmw cars based around my local area?
i've reported some sites with hidden (invisible periods) cross links on their index pages. is it worth continuing to report stuff like this or are you guys simply too busy to handle all of the spam reports that you receive?
Sites translated into foreign languages (may or may not have separate domains but would have duplicate pages for each langauge) could seem like mirrors.
Cross linking these sites to share content, resources and to add user flexibility.

Eg. Danish pages showing on Norwegian "only" searches and vice versa.
