I took a strange drop in rankings on the search keyword "SEO Gold Coast" quite a while back...basically from my homepage being ranked number one or two, to this internal page replacing my good ranking homepage which seemed OK at the time but then the internal page's rank dropped drastically to 11 or 12 and the homepage never returned to the listings for that search.
I never figured it out at the time...I wonder...

See the Google webmaster tools Help page on "Crawl errors icon to indicate hyperlink opens in new tab" (new window) which explains the details of what it does.
