    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:

    wwwdottimcarterdotcom/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 wwwdotAsktheBuilderdotcom? You can't get any more original content than what I have.

    It's SO GOOD that wwwdotehowdotcom 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, wwwdotcopyscapedotcom has been able to spot plagiarism for YEARS. Why can't your highly educated engineers do it?

    Perhaps the most blatant content farm - wwwdotehowdotcom - 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 ehowdotcom 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.

    This guy was used as a case study for adsense. He was making $30,000.00 a month at the end of the study. When I found the study back in 09 it was the main reason I got into IM. If you want to read it just search for "askthebuilder adsense case study" without quotes.

    Great post.

    There's a difference between making changes that effect blackhat, and making changes that effect almost everyone.
    Google really fucked this up.

    I hope more big sites like this speak up.

    Wow that is crazy. I wonder if Google will kill the page he was used in the case study for.

    I just signed up for adsense today, and an askthebuilder video was on the newbie/help landing page. It was an adsense promo from him, although probably taken before penguin or even panda...

    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    For those who whine about Penguin update, it confirms that opportunities are bigger than ever right now.

    Google is killing websites with real content. Some of them are going out of business, I suppose. That means a lot of room for smaller and mediocre sites.

    If the trend continues, soon Google won't find much original content. They are going downhill fast.
