Google Quality Guidelines
Does the site have duplicate, overlapping, or redundant articles on the same or similar topics with slightly different keyword variations?
Consolidating approximate duplication (if lots of pages on the site about the same topic)

In the past Google just filtered same content for parent/child pages and displayed the best result. But things may have changed slightly. with Panda.
In the context of Panda , what is "overlapping content" defined as, and how should it be best managed? How for example are shopping sites with product dealing with this.
but gives no guidance on how to structure a site to rank appropriately for all the variants
And let me tell you, even after Panda, Google doesn't rank a single high quality page in the top for all the possible search phrase variations that are relevant.
calls-to-action (conversion points) right on the page instead of on the other end of a link.
I couldn't visualise this - could you elaborate or describe an example.
