    If you keep your ear to the ground and adapt, you will be fine.

    There has to be an obvious trigger. Some Content farms devalued by googlebot and some are not.

    One possibility is the percentage of ad space on the page might matter (not strange given scrapers/content farms often have a high percentage of real estate going to that).

    A quick check shows the ones that lost rank devoted google's limit of 3 ads per page while ehow devotes only 2.

    If you have small niche autoblogs my guess is you are way under radar.

    You have to remember these huge content farms are going after keywords that are competitive. Google can financial stand to lose them because of their competitiveness.

    This cracks me up... G00ble is looking for "quality" but if you search for a product keyword all you get are shopping links, the websites that provide good product reviews are on the 2nd and 3rd page... G00ble is a corporate entity and they are only concerned about profits, whatever it takes to maximize shareholder value regardless of what the SERPs bring to users.

    Does the update affect blog networks(the blogs themselveres are not the money sites, but they link to the money sites)?

    That is why no one here should have a problem with siphoning all the f***ing money we can out of Google. Like someone above said, this is just another change.

    Wrong. My site had one ad per page and was slapped out of the index. Nothing to do with ad density.

    Seems like lots of confusion. I think that Google is trying to "shock and awe" us all into thinking we can't game them.
