Do you think the date of the cache version of the homepage should be after the new pages were added in order to have a better idea of ranking changes
changing the title tag to the exact phrase...
I recently stopped using a keyword group that had lower stats than others.Any chance you can expand on this a little? Do you mean you've stopped writing new content targeting these keywords (i.e. using them in titles of new pages) or you've removed old pages that were optimized for those KWs. I'm assuming by optimization you mean the KWs were used in the title, h1 and a few times in the text as well as used as anchor text in a few links perhaps.

I donít think itís only on popular keywords.I also think that this concept, if it's indeed a real thing, should work on all keywords, not just a subset of them. For one thing popularity of a keyword is a fleeting thing, it's popular one day and dead the next. To measure popularity by the number of AdWords ads on SERP (page) would reek of collusion and I don't think they would do that (but who knows). What else is there to reliably measure keyword popularity?
Can anyone explain to me how throttling can work? I understand the concept in that goof could be wanting (for reasons of its own) to not give a site too much traffic, but I cannot see how they would acheive this technically without moving a site in and out of the serps during the day. This is something I am not seeing.
Now ranking for long tails I find still quite easy to do. I can write an article today and be in the top 20 later today, but I probably can't be in the top 3. Those are more frozen.
