Why would you keep elsewhere only 10% of the data belonging to one site. Also, the drop affects a site (as in all or most pages of the same site) yet I think it makes sense to think that they arrange the data per page (individually).
From the experience I have everytime google does an update if your site is meant to rank better than it used to be...google moves your site further in the ranking for some time ( it is because it doing its ranking calculations ) and soon you will be back where you use to be if not better.
I'd bet money on the fact that Gorg is not using an RDBMS but an object oriented structure instead... Objects (pages) can have attributes and immediately inherit from algo changes.
The answer IMO is the site main keyword, usually the homepage or name and major pages titles (homepage, subdomain homepage and main directory titles) are stored in one table, and in most cases they are only a few dozen pages..
I'm a bitter searcher who does not like being forced to look at the paid ads on the side because the organics are so awful.
Money is driving the plex now, not user satisfaction.
That said, I love the new Caff index. It has treated most all my sites very well.
A couple of points on this.
1) Declining user satisfaction -> declining traffic -> declining revenue/profit. User satisfaction IS money
2) Rephrased "My sites are doing well now user satisfaction is out the window!"
It's doubtful the above could be true. Google's here for the long run, this is good tactic if you're closing down operations.

People are like trained monkeys when it comes to using Google.
Guys, what's the status of 'caffeine' as far as you can tell? is this it or what?
