    8.5%? That's not so much.

    Surprisingly I haven't noticed any significant changes on my sites

    but check out this graph, perfect growth rate record broken. Will be interesting to see how it plays out, if they keep growing, or start losing more traffic.

    I guess the big question is what is their trend for the next month right? Does the trend keep dropping or is sufficient Google damage control conducted offline to repair the damage...
    Just makes you wonder what offline relationship Demand Media has compared to Hubpages and the others who got targeted.

    I think that the difference is that Demand Media has unique content. Sites like EZA are full of duplicate and spun content.

    They (Demand Studios) do use a duplicate content checker on the authoring side. But so does Hubpages...EZA I have no clue if they do or not.

    EZA doesn't have any restrictions on duplicate content as long as you own the article.

    Hubpages, I have no idea what the issue is.

    The Farmer update is supposed to rank sites with higher quality content higher and sites with low quality content lower. The question is how Google is determining the difference between low/high quality content and are they using human evaluation?

    As far as Hubpages, your content must be unique. They have certain systems in place for checking duplicate content. I doubt they would be doing everything manually, as that would be incredibly time consuming.

    I don't believe that the issue with Hubpages is about unique content.

    Google does have human evaluators. You can find some interesting tibbits here.

    I guessing that Google is using some combinations of trust rank (some human evaluation) and types of inbound links to score the quality of a page. As you said, human evaluation would be time consuming. So only some sites would have human evaluation.
