The recent Panda update has made many mammoth sites taste the dust. G says their change was to adversely affect the rankings of the so called Content Farms, cz according to them they had Low Quality Content. Well G is still a machine, and if the content is low quality or high quality is not what they can be sure of. Why? You are a great writer and say one simple point with perfect english and grammar in say 10 lines, someone from a non-english speaking country says the same thing with average or below average grammar in 2 lines. That does not mean G will lower the ranking of the latter's site. What Do Content Farms Have in Common 1) Outbound Links: Every page in a site like ezine has 1-2 D-o-f0llow outbound link. Which is a big biggg footprint 2) Rate of Adding Content: A normal site, run by a single webmaster, will not add thousands of articles with every article having outbound links every day, but this happens in case of content farms 3) Goog introduced the N0foll0w to fight spam, but later, the webmasters themselves became the culprit and allowed people to spam their websites with articles. Both, the webmaster and the spammer gained benefit from it. One got free content and other got free backlink. This ofcourse ruined the Anti Spam campaign of goog and finally they had to punish the webmaster along with the spammer. AMR Blast still is having mixed results, blasting to the TLD is making it dance like hell and sometimes it simply disappears and never returns, at the same time blasting inner pages aka deep linking, is making the inner pages dance but not much, and the results are GOOD. Not as good as how they used to be before panda, but still. So you better check your outbound links more than anything IMHO, cz thats what makes the panda come after you. Its quite obvious that if your not a content farm, you wont be linking to some random site on every page of your site, and that also with a d0foll0w link. Please add your inputs too..
