@jecasc - nothing about my site is fake.

Too many external named links "widget keyword" instead of "more..." (eg) cause penalties

@crobb305: that would fit the point "technical elegance" suggests quality :-)
Duplicate content snippets on your page cause substantial bigger problems
Interesting thought from incrediBILL about review sites being hit.

Is it that Google penalizes old content, or that they reward newer content?
Has anyone considered loading times?
User behavior: G gathers it from Chrome, Toolbar, Analytics and factors it in. It is rumored to be VERY strong.
I am pondering anything that can be programmed into the algorithm to be an indicator of quality, in particular, "Reputed Credibility" (i.e., 3rd-party certifications and awards). Among these MIGHT be SSL Certification, privacy verification, hacker-free certifications, respected/recognized awards, etc. These may or may not be playing a role right now.
This isnt not a factor right now, we have MANY certifications including:
We're ecommerce so we visibly show them, and we were still hammered by Panda
my focus is on relevance through semantic linking / navigation heirarchies, and natural language and conversations . Google asked consideration of it's testers for "human factors" , so to me it smacks of a step towards a greater grasp by the algorithmn of language across a raft of known options.
it has to be said, that a linear forum isn't the most ideal way to dissect the importance of various issues and/or present the findings in a clear and logical way.

Does anyone remember the old days of Google dance when G will do an update and results will be in a flux for days/weeks but eventually settle down? I hope this is the case.
