    EzineArticles and Associated Content? No.

    The download sites? I think most people haven't realized these are great - and easy - backlinks, so they're not really "farms" as they have mostly legitimate content. I'm not sure how the duplicate content issue works with them, though, as many people send their PAD files to several sites and, as such, would have the same content being submitted to each site.

    Social sites are obviously a go.

    Those may still be the sites that have top 100 rankings or whatever for whatever set of keywords were checked, but a whole bunch of them got hammered really bad.

    acaii etc.

    The Rank Decoding Engine works by seeing how many times a particular site shows up in the top rankings for search terms. It's usually pretty accurate because Google hasn't had such a massive algorithm change in a long while. However, I would not trust these results for choosing new properties to build on post-update.

    Why?

    Because everyone has been using those same sites for a long time. Of course they're still in the top results, a lot of them have thousands of backlinks behind them. It's not so much that Google loves them, but rather that internet marketers love them. A ton of my ezine articles are still in the top rankings after the update, but that's probably because they have a crapload of backlinks pointing at them. Even if Google does not "love" a property, you can win the big G over if you try hard enough.

    Do you mean profile links or other links? Can you link to a list if it's more than profiles, and can it be automated with paid tools out there? Thanks.

    It would also take some time before the effect of the google algo could have effect on those sites. Just like it takes some time for a site to be completely indexed and start ranking in Google, it would also take some time for sites to fall off the ranking.

    EZA tightened up policy after being hit by Google. Definitely down. SEOMoz confirmed this in one of their blog posts.

    How did you come to that conclusion is there a website or a
    updated list that is keeping track of the new google update.
