    Then maybe they should remove thin pages from corporate brands that are ranking for competitive terms. It's revolting when Google makes it hard for niche specialty websites to rank but sites like staples and amazon rank for a crappy product with a thin page in a niche they aren't even optimizing for.

    That's the power of "authority". When you have an authority site and you rank for hundreds of keywords you never tried to optimize your pages for in the first place, it feels good, doesn't it?!

    This! I think if you buy a certain amount (millions) in adwords, you get exempted from the algo.

    I think you have to understand Google's definition of "good content".

    Remember Google is a machine, it cannot figure out if something is "good quality". It can figure out what something is about, if it's grammatically correct, and if it's unique, that's it.

    Google bases quality on links, and obviously in simplistic terms since these giant websites have bazillions of links, they will always have a big advantage.

    STOP BELIEVING the google hype about how they can tell the difference between "quality" content and junk. They CAN NOT. Not with the algo. OF COURSE they can with a manual review. The moral of the story is stop complaining that others (no matter whether they are small, medium, or big) are ranking with crap content, and learn how to do the same. Not saying you have to put ALL your eggs in that basket, BUT, I can tell you with ABSOLUTE certainty that "quality" content is INCREDIBLY over rated. It's for users, not google. If all you care about is ranking so you can feed an ad/offer to a visitor then you DO NOT need to worry about "quality". DO worry about uniqueness and structure (on page seo including kwd density, etc..).

    Experiment...LOTS...Try doing the exact OPPOSITE of what you think might work...just for the hell of it... and a whole lot of other stuff in between. Do it enough and sooner rather than later, you will find something that works great and can be scaled up bigger.

    Good luck.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it mostly comes down to links anyways.

    Google won't gives a f*** about quality content because Google is a machine, unless the machine is the same level as artificial intelligence that it can think about quality of the content. But, that's still far from true, at least now.

    Man's got a point !
    But dude; amazon is a big brand now, and there are actual people too than just bots who work to manage the page rank!
    So, I guess you got your answer!
    It's wired; but that's how it works!

    HONEY!

    These guys saying Google doesn't care about the quality of content are half right, at least as far as our experience goes. You should also definitely keep trying out new things. Add more unique content or media. Get paid traffic like from webtrafficgeeks or easyvisitors. Invest in overhauling your website. This might be like throwing mud at the wall until something sticks but something is bound to stick.

    QUALITY does matter, it's just that in this case, AUTHORITY wins...
