    I don't know, but I think everyone knew that autoblogs weren't the most reliable sources of income. Besides, using quality content can instead of low-quality, plagiarised articles can only have positive effects. No biggie, I'm sure not many of us don't have all our eggs in one basket. I suggest those that do start to experiment and diversify!

    Even with auto blogs I have always been a firm believer in mixing in original content.

    Google used to be known as the search engine who returned the best, most relevant results. I know that's the reason that I personally migrated over to using Google search instead of its competitors. Google's reputation has really taken a hit from all of the shitty quality affiliate spam that's made it in their top search results.

    Can't blame Google for trying to clean up its trash--for those affected, I guess it's time to start bringing some useful content to the table! Never have all the eggs in one basket.

    I wonder how this will be affecting some of our service providers in the buy/sell forum longterm, though...

    you made a point there. i think a lot of pages should have better content. maybe its that i am still affected from googles attempt to regulate "general" internet access together with a powerful provider like verizon. as you say, they should worry about "their" trash and about "their" search engine.

    Yes there are slow loading sites which are mostly slow because they are loaded with great plugins and effects like mine is. That is the freedom of the designer who ether throws a fast template on the web to produce content or has a serious business and relies on showing off his portfolio in the best possible and attractive way which leads to slower site speeds.

    Google earned them self to be the "default" search in browser windows. Some people like my mother never even known that there is another option. These millions of people would then have limited access to my business because my site is slow.

    After this attempt of stretching out and gaining control over "accessibility" of our sites through the left url bar away from their little search bar, i will keep aware of the moves they do next.

    "total cloud server enviroment through the new CR48?" sounds great, you basically "live" in a from google for you prepared living room providing 24/7 the utmost best possible market research for a company who can afford and will store every single bit about your personal daily life and choices on the net............
