    Google just announced the changes they have made since November 14, 2011

    Here's the breakdown:

    I've removed those that really weren't that important for the SEO
    crowds. Having said that there are a few updates that are pretty
    interesting and I'm curious if any of you have noticed this in the
    SERPs.

    Specifically, New "parked domain" classifier, More comprehensive
    indexing (AKA long-tail more likely to rank), Original content update.

    Anyone notice any differences that were heavy owners of parked
    domains? Or what about long-tail keywords, anyone notice a change
    there as well?

    This is a good thing. We want google to be able to identify the page with the original content otherwise you end up in those annoying situations where someone steals your content and outranks you, or worse, you get penalized and they rank on page 1 with your content.

    While I'm glad they're trying to improve their content originality detection, there are still many cases where it is awarded to the scraper/aggregator sites instead of the original source - the original source gets kicked down. It hasn't happened to me but I've seen a lot of people complain about it... home improvement write up site owners for example.

    This one is a bother. Not for me personally, but I would hate for someone to work hard just so someone can steal their stuff and have the source being banned.

    I can't believe Google was already sending tons of traffic to parked domains. 1000's of domains can sit on the same IP address serving nothing but 100% ads on homepage and Google only now just figured out how to stop sending traffic to them?

    Here I was thinking they were a little more advanced than that by now.

    I actually was thinking the same thing when I read this announcement.

    How long has Google been around and this is what they are just implementing?

    I'm beginning to have my doubts about the future of Google, they really need to step up their game.

    so as they said for a long time.... content was and will be the kind.

    If you got quality content, it's very likely to rank high

    Google is aging and getting as fat and lazy as the millionaires running it.
