    So I was scrolling down the blog comments on that blogspot about the latest algorithm update and I found this snippet. I don't know if it's the real author, but do you guys recognize him? He's the "askthebuilder" guy, who I remember a long time ago was an "Adsense Success Story" that Google referenced on their Adsense website. If you're not familiar, basically this guy has a site where he creates original DIY home videos on youtube and articles etc. on carpentry and monetizes his site with Adsense. Kind of sucks if this is real...

    Matt,

    You guys jumped the shark with Panda 1.0. Go read this blog post if you want to see where many of us on the other side of the fence see this going:

    http://www.timcarter.com/free_high-quality_content_online_-_how_much_longer.html

    Read closely the text from the Google blog that I quote. Panda was supposed to "reward creators of original content." BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    If that's the intention of Panda, why have I lost 80% of my traffic at www.AsktheBuilder.com? You can't get any more original content than what I have.

    It's SO GOOD that www.ehow.com has cited it on over 13,000 of their pages. It's so good it's copied all the time by the webspam sites that constantly outrank me on page one of your results.

    How is it you can't tell the difference from my original content and what the thieves regurgitate? Are you serious?

    For goodness sake, www.copyscape.com has been able to spot plagiarism for YEARS. Why can't your highly educated engineers do it?

    Perhaps the most blatant content farm - www.ehow.com - is still on page one of Google for many results. How in the world can you say that's good for the ecosystem? They *copy* content from me and tens of thousands of other original content creators.

    I have a challenge for you Matt. Why don't you convene a Summit of about 100 of the top Original Content Creators - two from each vertical - and have them come out to the Mother Ship so you can hear our side of the story?

    You do realize that you're putting out of business tens of thousands of great content creators, don't you?

    Who's going to fill that vacuum? Who will ehow.com copy then?

    If you think that it's easy to create thousands of pages of great content, you're dreaming. You got too close to Steve Jobs' Reality Distortion Field.

    I beg you and the top decision makers at Google to think about my Summit idea. I'd gladly come to have a sensible debate about the unintended consequences of Panda and what you're doing.

    i think google is in for a rude awaking, like the post said 10s of thousands, this is going to put alot of pressure on them or some of the other big site are going to come up with there own search engine and do away with google

    his website makes me think of the eighties

    the guy is complaining, but in the last 15 years the internet has changed a bit GRANDPA, if the guy spent a week reading some forums, rent a nerd to do some damage repair he would be fine

    i dont think we can blame google for this one



    if an advertisement company would still advertise in hyroglyphs we also would not be surprised that they would go out of business



    not saying that google doesnt suck and is not evil
