    History has shown that when Google issues a "reminder," it's a courtesy warning. Algorithm updates and penalties are likely to follow.
    scary days are ahead!

    Gotta smile at these 2;

    1.Using or hiring article writers that aren’t knowledgeable about the topics they’re writing on
    2.Using the same or similar content across these articles; alternatively, duplicating the full content of articles found on your own site (in which case use of rel=”canonical”, in addition to rel=”nofollow”, is advised)

    Niche writers rejoice. You may get some extra business in the coming weeks.

    That first one isn't hard to figure out. A generalized, hollow article is not hard to spot.

    I'm almost excited to see how this is going to play out. How will shitty content take another hit from G?

    @bartosimpsonio is right. G is just filtering out the trash so that they can serve up only the best content curated from websites they deem worthy.

    Either play their game and stop hiring shitty content writers, or do it your way and lose.

    Or go to another search engine.

    I wonder how SEO blogs will continue to spin Google's attacks on webmasters as something great. Yesterday I was helping an elderly person do some searches and they got all the answers straight from the SERPs. Not a single click-through to any website from a "normal" older user that has no clue where the info came from.

    That's the future of the WWW.

    Most big sites don't even call it a guest post, they call the person a "contributor." Don't look for sites that are advertising guest posts, make sure the site has legit traffic and stats. It's better to set up syndication opportunities these days if you can.

    Most people hang on every single word G says. It's gospel to them.

    The rest of us just kind of watch from the sidelines, point and laugh.

    The question is, why are you NOT reading it?

    You can literally check first thing in the morning which takes literally 10 seconds to see if they have post and save yourself a LOT of misery if you are a dodgy cunt that continually tries to outsmart a multi-billion dollar company.

    It's a good indicator of penalties to come etc etc etc
