    Then you might be happy to see that eZA got hammered in the Farmer update.

    Farmer results are currently only showing in the U.S., but they will likely go global in the next few months.

    In the blog post now it says:

    "Updated 7:30am CST Sunday: I’m less certain this move will change anything, so for the sake of this discussion, let’s remove it from the table. I will comment further below."
    Too funny! Their OODA loop is broken.

    They will EVERYTHING is come out this content farm label. But I wonder at their new diamond level at this critical stage that can allow more and more articles submission. Anyway.

    No-follow will not help them and Knight knows it already I guess. They lost Google and with no-follow, they will lose the members. They have hardened their editorial and review system to fix the poor content jobs. It's my high time to launch the long due article directory against them

    Knight knows it better than any others, if he makes Ezine to "nofollow", forget about Google, many freelancers/email marketers will leave ezine and that will hamper Ezine's credibility and sustainability than anything else.... So, Ezine will be "do follow" for sure

    I believe that ezine is still "do-follow". They were discussing going "no follow" after the Panda update.

    I think the concept is that writers submit their articles to this service and the articles get picked up by newsletter publishers to bolster their content and provide extra value to the readers of the newsletter.

    The article writer then gets a chance for people that read and like their article to go and check out their website.
    This is how I view articles submitting to ezine as well. We may not get much from the site itself but I've seen our content pulled from ezine with links intact on several other websites and blogs.
    It's a win win for me

    I checked some of my recent articles on ezine and the links are all nofollow now. They also applied it to older articles as well, some of the articles I had from 2006 now have nofollow on their links.

    Those bastards. We had a deal -- and now they changed their end. They get content; we get links. They kept the content and took back the links. That's not honest business.

    This is hilarious. So every $ spent on ezine promotion and getting them unique content was for nothing. Are people allowed to delete their content?

    Hope Google will see this as manipulation and give them permanent penalty.

    This is strange. The links links on my articles don't have the "nofollow" tag. Wondering if this is done manually or there is a filter? My account is small and all the articles are unique.
