    I know, I know, not news to anyone :)

    BUT - I've just seen a stream of conciousness keyword dropping piece of bullshit .edu wiki entry I made a few months ago for backlinking purposes outrank proper sites (including my own) for it's keyword...
    What makes it EVEN more strange, is the only backlinks it has are from pinging it and posting it to digg, it's got no PR and you can't even view the page without logging in! Noones ever seen it and I barely remembered making it!

    If it's seriously that easy to rank for keywords right now I'm gonna go back to college and cover my webspace with Affiliate links!

    (Honestly it does not compute...)

    Google's Algorithm is fucked up now. It is devaluating sites with good content, good PR, whitehat backlinks and promoting single page websites with spammy links just because they are on some authority domain.

    Yeah, they must have forgotten to carry a decimal place or something :)

    I'd really like to know how shoddy their results can get before the average Joe on the street realizes and looks for something else :)

    Clearly their algorithm needs a bit of fine tuning. So many reports of sites with good content being shot down

    Well I don't claim that my content is any good - but it's definitely better than throw away content I wrote to stick on that wiki! :D

    it is because recent algorithms going against backlink builders, they have to give more value to sub domains of authority domains. simply they are giving domains pages value just because the domain is authority. think as an authority domain has a page with very poor content about a topic. but there are very good whole websites about that topic.
    recent algos giving more ranking to that poor content but main domain authority page more value which is screwing search quality.

    I'm just blown away, I'm noticing more of a change now then any of the supposed big changes.
