Hey guys have a look at the following link. I shows how majority of traffic from the content farms have dropped significantly since the last Google algorithm change.
https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub...d0ltZ2VsZGQtcmc&single=true&gid=0&output=html
ezine articles, hubpages and others have experienced a 70% drop in keyword visibility. This is a MASSIVE Google slap. It makes me think that their revenue will be cut in half from now on.
It also makes me think what effect this is going to have on senuke and article marketing robot as they rely heavily on these content farms.
The content farms are going to try to improve their content and hence will make it harder for programs like senuke and article marketing robot to successfully post spinned content.
So if you have unique content on your site your rankings might even improve..

Is it just going to be Unique content? or is it going to be content that has at least SOME value.I doubt that the algo can really discern what a good article is as far as reader value but big G certainly has ways that THEY will determine what a topic Authority is.
I'm confident that those here will Biotch Slap back with new techniques to make Matt Cutts get his undies in a bundle :)

Ezine articles is expecting their traffic to drop 50% and have already taken action in order to revert this latest Google slap, as per a recent blog post by Chris Knight.

the sad thing is that 90% of most organic traffic is from Google, so most are dependant on Google.
senuke x is due to come out in March, I wonder if this will further delay the release.

Now , everyone need to understand that most people using AMR and Senuke are creating linkwheels more than driving direct traffic to the website .
That is being said : a PR9 is still a PR9 and a linkwheel is still a linkwhell , heck it is now even easier to rank for affiliate offers . No more cheap blogger , hubpages , squidoo and article directories on the first page :D

google holds about 90+% of all search engine traffic, with the rest taken up by bing, yahoo and the rest.
Google - 94%
Yahoo - 3.5%
Search - 0.82%
Ask - 0.56%
AOL - 0.54%
Bing - 0.23%

also ezine, hubpages and the rest have experienced a 50% drop in traffic because they rely so heavily on Google. if you think that google is not the worlds no1 source of traffic, you are delusional.

The key is DIVERSIFY. Just build as many links from different platforms and you are safe.

Forum, article, web2.0, blog, press release, answer, wiki, profile ...... etc

I doubt Google will win in this war. They started it a long time ago and now still a loser. If you guys read about the JC penney story, you will know that Google have to MANUALLY remove the results from SERP. It may affects big kw but I think small ones will be unaffected.

couldn't agree more. the old saying goes that if you have all your eggs in one basket ...

and in a lot of respects it will make it easier because joe average won't be able to piggyback off squidoo, ezine, hub pages etc etc to get on the first page of google.

why should they get on the first page without ever doing any onsite seo or ever building a link, simply because they can write an article or throw a few things on a lens.

the way i look at it is that articles, lens, hubs etc are just useful teir 1 link sites
