    Now this puts a spanner in the works to the 'give google quality content' idea.

    I was at number 1 for my kw with a 500 word article of unique content.

    G has now deemed that my spam article directory blasts- not one click junk spins and xrumer posts are of higher quality than the original article as theres about 3 of these on the front page and my original money url is down to top of page 2.

    The one thing I can think of which might be the case is the 'overoptimization' penalty which I guess would only count for the original article and not the others since they woudlnt have other backlinks with the kw pointing to them and their domains would have many more backlinks I guess.

    Any other theories? Im just throwing shit at the wall wildly atm and seeing if anything sticks, which nothing has so far.

    most likely a combination of signs that a site is 'monetizing' (adsense, affiliate urls, etc.) and the link + content quality.

    I think it is most likely that google would think a non-monetized site to be less likely to be using 'spam/bad' techniques.

    no theories mate.. there is no linear behavior by google. One thing is sure, now there is no sure shot way of getting to the top. We might succeed with one approach for a site and fail with the same approach on another site.
