    I used to make quite a lot of cash from the eBay partner network using phpbay to pull related auctions straight onto my sites. I always have at least 300 words of content with phpbay underneath.

    Anyway, since the first round of panda updates any page that has phpbay on it won't rank at all. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I am having the same issue, and after eliminating all other possible factors that i can think of it only leaves the PHPbay code.

    If you look at the source code where PHPbay is placed it is obvious that auctions are being listed on the page with a specific codce, and One Lung Thin members, not sure if you ever heard of them, have been heavily flooding the web with thin sites of spun content with lots of PHPbay code, and so I do not think it would be hard for Google to place a filter in their algo for this.
