Have all the pages remained unchanged throughout this 'experiment'? Were any
incoming links added in the interim? What is the extent of the site and what
do you gauge its ranks by? Are you following just a single results page?
Have you considered the fact that your competition is never static either?
I am skeptic merely because these trials are over-simplified. You are
