I remember when Google hammered the directories hard and most of us suffered the consequencies. Now that most all businesses online are hammered hard, I am wondering if not only e-commerce owners will go out of business, but also all of the outsourcing companies or freelancers working for the online businesses.
It could affect many more industries like SEO companies, copywriters, link builders, marketing companies, directories, etc.
It is laughable that Google did that for the purpose of "officially increasing quality" of their index, when the same spammers are still there.
So my question is: Do you think the new Google policy will make the outsourcing services and sites dissappear along with e-commerces?
