How to lower your ranking in Google

This may sound ludicrous to some, but how would you go about knocking your pages down little by little?
Without any obvious changes to Title tags or on page content, what is the best way to drop from the 1st page of SERPs to the 5th?

Yeah, I saw that about the googleon and googleoff tags myself being related to Google search appliances, as I had never heard of this before either.

I Like the quick reply feature, woo hoo

I suspect that the reverse engineering the poster is trying to accomplish is to drop his competitor from 1 to 5. Question seems to be "if I don't have access to change the content or affect any of the changes you've suggested regarding uploading certain things, how do I drop the ranking of a top ranking SE result?"

Quadrille - As I already explained in my response to internetheaven I DO have access to the content and I am not trying to affect any other sites.
To paraphrase a disgraced clown..."Let me make this perfectly clear" - the site in question is my own site and I am only trying to get a better understanding of the power each tag has in relation to rankings.
The fact that the site may drop a few pages is inconsequential.
This is partly a study in what role each tag plays, their interaction together, and partly a study on subtle techniques that are not obvious to the viewer but may have profound consequences on rankings.
