I came across NY Times article which gives some visibility to those who find themselves at odds with Google's algorithm:
Interesting that apparently some animals are more equal than others; the sites referenced were able to get unofficial inside guidance from Google due to connections to fix their problems.
Also interesting is Google's defense is that improvements to their "product" is done by "adding more services that collect and parse data". Seems to line up with the conspiracy theories that Google is forcing us at virtual gunpoint to structure our data so they can read it, and they will ultimately assimilate it.
