    Hi

    Is it possible to rank with crappy but unique content?
    Does google algorytm detect "readability"?

    Websites are ranked for KWs. You can rank for specific crappy KWs. But apart from content, G also looks at BLs and on-page SEO

    If you use crappy content is just a matter of time and your post will get de-indexed.
    Well, couple of years ago worked fine but now especially after Google Panda update is harder to make money and rank on auto-pilot websites or crappy content.

    Since the last update, google indexes content slower but the ranking is crap and the traffic is almost 0, older that 2 year domains are not affected by this. The new domains don't get traffic for this kind of content.

    Google doesn't care as much for readability as for the domain, they classify the domain, content is not very important.

    Also having adsense on the site can hurt the ranking, google made more money penalizing content farms by not paying publishers who lost traffic

    Short term, it may help, so long as posts are made regularly, but yes, in the long run it will get deindexed.

    Maybe a good question would be: is non-unique content better than crappy but unique content.

    Thanks for the replys.
    Seems like in future more money is going to the rewriting industry.
    Still going to give it a try. Blog has scheduled posts for 2 months :)
