    Almost 12%.
    I guess now is a good time to start selling selfwritten high quality articles, BHW.

    So they are finally taking action against autoblogs?

    No negative or positive results here yet. Looking forward to knowing how this goes..

    So they shot to the sites that do duplicated content...buf

    The part I didn't understand is the "personal blocklist",so they will watch the opinion of some users,so it could be a "Withc hunt" that could be used by some SEO the beat it's rivals? What do you think?

    I would also say, we probably wont notice the main difference until few days from now when Google bot re-crawls our websites and our competitions websites. I have seen HUGE changes over the last 3 days (+100, then -100, then +150, then -150) So I know my sites are being affected... will have to wait for the final analysis in a few weeks.

    No, they are just using it for comparisons with their algorithm at this point. And "some users" = millions of users, not something that will be easily affected by some blackhatter.

    Why would anyone leave feedback on sites unless those sites are fraud/scam?

    and tbh i think they are just trying to fight back auto-content sites like you know type of sites that put "searches on xxxxx keyword" as their webpage and scrap content such as autoblogs yeah...

    But there are tons of SEO sites that actually put spammy ads/affiliate reviews but since the content themselves are unique, Google algorithm (so far) unable to notice if they are of high quality or not. Will these type of sites be affected too?

    half my sites now on page 2, some dancing, waiting for the dust to settle, then plan how to beat the algo (again) all my sites are static html, wondering if WP got hit as well?
    initial analysis points to thin content.
    My sites all have good OPSEO relevant links and low bounce. Anyone know a good cheap content writer LOL.

    If they consider bounce rate more nowadays, then there's a lot of trick for that because the real high quality content usually put everything in one page hence why bounce rate might be actually higher...while there are a lot of sites that only put "summary page" then have "Click Here To Read More/Continue" button below it which might reduce bounce rate effectively. This kind of site can get better SERPs now?

    As I looked at the changes on my websites at Google the autoblogs were making crazy dances. :) And whenever a thing like this happens a big wave of change comes next.

    I've changed 3 of my autoblogs to RSS aggregators and they started to go up again.

    As for my client websites this is good news I hink because they started to go up in a swift manner in the last weeks.

    Mahalo and EzineArticles have both been hit hard. Looks like Buzzle too but I haven't collected data for them yet.

    Lol yeah. They've started to think of themselves as gods, booting authors and acting as some internet authority. Truth is, they were simply used while it lasted and will be send into oblivion soon like so many others (e.g. social bookmarks). But this also means that SEs have identified a new source of reliable links / votes and I don't think it's the voting plugin. Happens every time too. A major shuffle always signifies this. Off to experimenting.

    Sorry to hear about the fall of broken penis - From #1 to #4! LOL

    In any case I just posted a thread about the pissing contest between Overstock and Google where Google sandboxed Overstock for Overstock's pay for play backlink strategy. If they start going after the big retailers this could get messy.

    I'm curious how mixed content sites will fair in Googles new algorithm.. Either way I'm sure we'll all be watching our autoblog traffic carefully over the next few weeks.


    I'm hoping this will weed out all the turnkey autoblogs people throw up in the thousands shit all over the internet with.
